40% calorie deficit. High protein intake: 2.4 grams per kilogram of bodyweight. Lifting. 4 weeks of diet and lifting and the results were good: a gain of 1.2 kg of lean body mass and losing 4.8 kg of fat. Good result. This is viable if you are NEET or are on holiday. If your work requires energy it might be hard to maintain.



"For 4 weeks, a group of young men in their 20s were basically starved, but on a high-protein diet — about 2.4 g/kg.

So, for instance, a 200 lb (91 kg), relatively active young man whose energy needs would normally be 3000 calories per day might get:

  • 1800 calories per day (40 percent less than normal)
  • 218 grams of protein per day (2.4 x 91 kg)
This means that out of those 1800 calories per day, about 48 percent of them were from protein.

The men trained hard — lifting weights and doing high-intensity intervals 6 days a week.

After 4 weeks, on average:
