View Full Version : PSMF ?s

I have decided it's about time I started a new diet. Not so much a cut, but just get down to where I was last fall (before college started). I'm looking into a PSMF diet. I have almost no money and would like to pick up Lyle's book but am unable to afford it. I'm curious if anyone has any good links or info on his PSMF diet. I found a lot of forums and that type of thing but they were run by overweight women using PSMF to get down which doesn't cater to me as a powerlifter. I want to make this diet as quick as possible without losing too much (hopefully no) strength.

Current stats:
6'0" 255

Body fat is about 23ish percent using 3 point test though Im new at this so it may be a little off but it should be close. Anyways, thanks a lot for your input.

You might want to do a quick search on PSMF; there are typically about 5 threads a week here on it, asking basically the same questions. With that said:

One of the first points made in Lyle's PSMF book is that PSMF is usually the wrong approach. Unless there's a compelling reason to drop a bunch of weight fast, Lyle (and pretty much everybody) suggests a more moderate diet. The point of the book is to make what's a potentially hazardous diet safer and more reasonable.

So, doing the diet without the book is Not Recommended.

But if you must, at least check out the http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=38
PSMF forum on Lyle's site.

Here's a post describing what I think is about the best way to set up a sane fat loss diet:
