no, the key is more energy expenditure than you are taking in kcal.

Agreed.


Your diet should be moderate to high protien during bulk AND cuts anyway. Carb manipulation and high protein is the key.

Low carb, high fat, moderate protein is the key.

Yup... I find high-intensity training to be the best fat-shredder.

If you have plenty of weight to loose, then it does have merit as it lends itself towards an overall lifestyle change.

he also needs to state what he means by "high protein" as in if he considers 1g per lbm... then I agree... but if he means like 50% plus of your diet coming from protein, no. He also said weight loss, not body composition so... kina blurs what this poll is really asking.

what if i say 1.5 gram for lean body mass, then of course a very low fat(fat sources: nuts, olive oil..)carbs(potato, oatmeal..etc.)

is that okey?

Yes, minus the fat.

I would not go "very low" on the fat consumption, especially if you are doing low carb.

For pure weight loss no because plenty of people, myself included, can lose weight and eat nothing but complete crap. It all depends on your definition of 'high protein'

there's your answer. always keep protein intake high (around 1g/lb).

Not vital, but I find it helps a lot to satisfy hunder, slow digestion, keep me full longer and hense control total calorie intake.
