I've been hearing a bit about an Isocaloric diet and wanted to know the details of such. (what is is, how it's done, good for both cutting and bulking)

Currently I do 40p/20f/40c and wanted to do something different to lose a bit of fat., but don't want to do anything to drastic.

Thanks for your input.

Isocaloric is just equal amounts of protein/fat/carbs.

No idea what it is useful for.

So an isocaloric diet is just a 33/33/33?

yes, its a cutting diet. depending on your bf, you need to incorporate refeeds where you over eat, the point of the diet being to manipulate leptin so both fat loss and muscle maintence can occour. it is what the experts are saying is best for this purpose, maybe better than a ckd.

say you refeed once a week, you would multiply your weight by 15 and eat 10-20% below that number when dieting, and when you refeed multiply your weight by 15, then add 50% of that on, and that is how many calories you need to eat.
