So true...that and if it aint working (aka your health and performance are going down) change something up! Yes calories are the issue...get those up and you may just notice you feel better, your immune system improves, etc....doesn't have to be 5000cal a day...but keep upping or have a day every 2-3 days in which you eat anything you want....I add those in when I feel like crap and it's amazing how much your body is looking for those calories! Cycling lower days and refeed days will get a greater positive response than just the same amount of calories per day....you body responds better to variety not routine.

I wasn't arguing for any type of diet. I was simply stating the facts and rebutting Heidi's unfounded statements. Surely, goals should be considered when formulating any diet.
There are dreams we’re taught are normal, whether it’s money or success or any of those things, but we shouldn’t believe in those things if they are not important to us. There is an ocean between our real lives and what is expected of us.” -Tim Lambesis
