Fat Loss Study

We tried to push the envelope with two different control groups, keeping every variable consistent that we could for 8 weeks. One group had a slightly more aggressive exercise plan AND greater caloric deficit.

We found that 0.5 pounds per week was maximum weight loss before losing the muscle mass we thought was potentially detrimental to the individual.

Note that the study participants were active fit individuals and data may have looked different with a different cohort.

We just don’t have enough studies over time in the field of sports performance research to make definitive statements as to what works best.
