Thanks Lyle. Yes I realized a long time ago that my body hates me
So, let's say that you were fat, you lost the weight and are pretty lean and sportin some abs. Your fat cells are now pretty sensitive because "your body hates you". Where do you go from here? I realize that if you were fat and lost it that you will always have to be carefull about what you eat. But at some point won't it all come crashing down, thyroid, testosterone etc? Is this where breaks in dieting ie refeeds come into play? Maybe rotate the calories and carbs so even though your body is in an overall deficit over the course of a week or two, it doesn't realize it. What I'm getting at is you can't have your body thinking it's starving for the rest of your life to stay lean, and be healthy.
