    If you are in a deficit, the less you eat, the more you lose. If you eat a surplus, you can reduce and still gain weight if you reduce to just a smaller surplus.

  • "Many diets boast that less fat or less calories as the gateway for weight loss, but that strategy only goes so far. Over time, caloric deprivation contributes to lower leptin levels and slows down your metabolism, making it virtually impossible to lose all the weight you want. Hello brick wall “or plateau” as hopeful low-fat dieters like to think!"

    Yes it's true. The problem is that

    1. You mostly loose water weight

    2. Your metabolism will become really slow, so when you start w=eating normally again you will gain weight fast

    I would say false. It all depends on your metabolism.

    If you consume fewer calories than it takes to stay the same weight, you will lose weight.
