Then you take out 20% of the food from your diet measured in calories and see what happens for the next four weeks or so, and very probably you will lose weight. When stalling you subtract another 10 % of your food measured in calories etc. And so you continue until reaching your ideal weight! Yes, it’s really that simple, but then comes other things into the lives of the dieters; distractions, temptations, travelling, fear of losing lean mass etc. that mess up the original plan...
    That sounds like a perfect formula for slowing your metabolism down to a halt and becoming one of the "How come I'm not losing weight on 950 calories a day" posters. Please don't take this advice, people.

    It's not whether you're expending more than your taking in that's interesting. If you're losing weight (other than water weight), you are. It's the question of why that's actually interesting/worth discussing.

    Right! I'm pretty sure I still follow the laws of thermodynamics, its just that my "calories out" have become much more complicated than simply increased exercise...

    I keep upping my food intake, stay in ketosis as much as I can (because I FEEL better when I do), IF when I have to, and continue to lose weight. Yesterday I ate 3328 calories. This is typical for me since going Paleo, and I am down 16lbs in 65 days. Actually, I've increased calories from the 3000-3100 range to the 3200-3300 range over the last week. A week that I've dropped another 2lbs.

    I understand that my results are not typical, but no, CI/CO doesn't explain my experience at all. (Actually, if CI/CO worked for me, i should be UP weight over the last 9 weeks, as I've actually upped food intake drastically over this period).

    CI/CO is a good starting point for many people I agree wholeheartedly, but it is not the whole story by any means.
    Couldn't agree more. It's tiring to read the regurgitated spew of the most common current theories presented as if it is a fact. Or even worse as if it is an original thought.

    And like you, I see what I believe to be true in some of the long sermons, but to think that you have all the answers is a clear sign of ignorance or at least a lack of creativity.
    Some of you may die, but that is a risk I'm willing to take.

    Personally - I honestly do love all the arm-chair experts. Sometimes it makes me roll my eyes, but the majority of the time it makes me think about things in other ways that may or may not be relevant to me at that time.
    Most people discuss things based on their life experiences. Chat rooms allow people from all over the place to come together and throw ideas around.

    Metabolic slowdown is overhyped and is not a problem for people that have enough bodyfat to lose. Most people that think they are consuming 950 kcal and not losing weight, are probably consuming much more! Studies made on selfreporting related to weightloss shows that people tend to underreport what they are eating with 35% on average...

    You're putting the cart before the horse, my man. How did those people obtain the bodyfat?

    The part that irks me - I don't dismiss the experience of others, and I assume that what they write here is an accurate description of that experience.

    I fully understand that some don't like ketosis, and that some have had bad experiences with it. If high carb works for you - perfect!!! Please accept that low carb works for me, and that I just might not fit into your dogma.

    As RichMahogany is saying, wouldn't it be more helpful to ask why this has been my experience than to dismiss it altogether?

    Good grief! - You are coming up with a paper of valueless internet bullshit again, as usual I dare say! Did nobody teach you how to critically evaluate your sources? ...

    Well, at least it's interesting. Why has this been your experience? Is it because your body is regaining lost insulin sensitivity? If so, why is it doing that? Because you're producing less insulin, or because the oxidized PUFA's you likely cut out of your diet were wreaking havoc via a mechanism we (or at least I) don't yet understand? I think those are both plausible ideas and worthy of exploring.

    Maybe it's because ketosis is a metabolically advantageous state. Under CICO dogma, there's no such thing. If you're losing weight, you have to be eating less and/or moving around more. Are you overreporting your calories and/or underreporting your activity, as Gorbag would accuse you? I don't think so, but that doesn't mean it's not a plausible explanation.

    The point is that of course, it's not, as some claim, the only explanation. It only becomes the only explanation to call you a liar if you assume (or prove?) that metabolism is fixed. I'm certainly not of that school of thought, it belies the evidence I've come across as well as what my personal experiences suggest.

    You can't attack the argument, so you attack the source (OMG Internetz) and me personally? Are you going to call me a troll and promise to put me on your ignore list again? Or do you want to actually have a discussion about the matter at hand like gentlemen rather than resorting to ad hominem attacks, sir?
