    Hey Coaches,

    If someone is dieting for an extended time frame (6+ months) but sees absolutely no negative effects (no extreme hungry, no straying from diet, continued maintenance in strength or even improvement during exercises, good sleep, good mood etc), is it necessary to go on a scheduled refeed or diet break (roughly half the time spent in a deficit) to combat the negative metabolic adaptations that can occur during this extended deficit (lower NEAT, lower BMR, lower Leptins, and in turn potential decrease in fat loss)?

    Progress is being made, albeit very very slowly in terms of fat loss (roughly .8% of body weight lost per week to ensure lean tissue and muscle loss is mitigated).

    Also, any additional tips to increase the speed of fat loss during this time frame besides heavy lifting and controlled protein and deficit? (Obviously dieting for another 6 months straight will be a challenge, but the goal is very low body fat)
