I noticed that after I do a refeed day, my first 2 days I don't see any significant fat loss

after that period where I'm somewhat depleted, I start to lose fat extremely fast, is this the same for you guys as well?

can you lose fat when your at a normal state of water retention?

Losing water is a "side effect" of losing fat. You basically empty your glycogen storage which also holds tons of water.

It's funny as hell. I started my PSMF (aka pity the starving motherfuker) 5 days ago and already lost 5 kg (aka 11 lbs..) of weight (strength stayed the same), mostly water.

so it's not possible to lose a lot of fat while having completely full and hydrated muscles?
