I have had some great success on the Rapid Fat Loss diet by Lyle MacDonald. A few weeks ago I started on RFL, and lost 10lbs in a little less than 2 weeks. I ate at maintenance for a week, and just started another RFL cycle as a category 2 dieter three days ago (believing that I was still over 15% bodyfat).
Well, I was pleasantly surprised this afternoon when I checked my bodyfat (with calipers), and came out at 13.7%. What this means, according to RFL, is that I am now a Category I dieter, and thus should have no free meals or refeeds until the end of the 12 day cycle.
This is a problem, since I will be traveling and meeting the inlaws over Memorial Day weekend, and it is near impossible to avoid carbs over the family meals without causing a ruckus.
As I see it, I have the following options:
(1) Stay on RFL as a category 2 dieter (even though Im at 13.6% bf)
(2) Switch to RFL as a category 1 dieter, but end the diet after 10 days and go into an intense carb up over memorial day.
(3) switch to UD2
So what do you all think is best for continuing to cut? Im leaning towards options 2 or 3...
