Hey guys,

So im on a PSMF at the moment, seems to be going pretty well. Lost around 20pounds in a month, just starting to slow down now.

I have started doing around a hour of slow walking on the days i don't train, do you think this will be ok, or push me too much into calorific defecit?

Im getting around 240grams protein a day, 1200-1400calories. I figure an hours walking is probably 250cals.

I'm thinking it might push my body a bit to far and start consuming muscle. Any ideas?

I would say cut it down to 30 mins, if you're worried about muscle lost.

Mr. D - Depends on what category your in. Cat 1 and 2 you have set refeeds and free meals (cat 2 only). Cat 3 doesn't get or need one (over fat individuals).

Interesting, Ive considered buying Lyles book on it to educate myself.

At what point, i.e. bf% is doing a PSMF detrimental?
I would assume 15% or less because at that point you can do UD2.0.

All you can do it do it and track results. I'm sure there are some out there that can walk for hours and not lose any muscle, and some who could walk for 10 minutes and burn it right up.

What's your body type?

Well Cat 1 is meant for lean individuals. You do a UD2 refeed at the end of it. If done correctly you can wont lose much LBM.

The thing about Lyle's books are the science that they are based off of is great for just general knowledge. One can learn so much from his books.
