    Great, can't wait to see the results.

    Your maintenance kcal sound quite low for a male though pk...
    Don't you exercise, too ? Because if you do it's even more the case to me...

    How tall are you ? oO

    Yup, I'm following too. May not comment much (making more username/passwords), but I'll be there.

    The kcal are low, and we will have to see how we go. At this point, I'm committed to at least one week, then reevaluate.

    I'm 6' tall, or I think 183 cms?

    I was talking about your pretended maintenance kcal, or 2000 kcal.
    Could just be me though.

    I'm following too pk.... just finished second day and putting my results into my journal here. No protein with mine.
    I'm interested to see why some people don't lose on this.
    Any ideas?

    He's not talking about glucose, temmeyhpettti, he's talking about its pretended "magical" effects in terms of body recomposition, with fat loss and muscle preserving.

    One of my favourite sayings is "There is no failure, only feedback."

    With that in mind, I can tell you that the feedback I'm getting is that I'm weight stable at an approximate 2000 kcal. intake. Of course, at that level I do get about 150g protein, the rest in fat, and about 50 - 100g of carbohydrate from mostly leafy or fibrous vegetables ( things like spinach, cabbage, cucumbers ). I also drink coffee throughout the day with either heavy or light cream, which could easily nudge me upwards, so, say maybe 300 kcal as an error factor, which would get me to maybe a maximum of 2300 kcal.

    If my activity patterns were to change, so that I would expend more energy, then I would expect that to be reflected in my weight, which hasn't happened.

    That's a good way to see things haha.
    Great, well, you look great after all so I think you're right doing what you're doing.
    I'm pretty sure you could eat more (if you kept the same quality eating) and not gain much fat though.
    Or maybe it's because I'm 19, still developing my body and under TRT, who knows
    But I know I need a bare minimum of 2500 kcal a day or I loose like crazy.

    I was surprised at that calorie total too. I'm a woman and (I think) much smaller than pklopp with less lean mass, and likely not younger than him, and I eat that much or more to maintain (or I'm vastly overestimating my intake). It's a good illustration of how calculated TDEE numbers can be very far off a given person's actual daily requirements.
