Yeah the 200 days become bearable because you know you get to eat more the next day! I did 200 today as well, 400 tomorrow!

As long as eat under maintenance you WILL lose weight no matter how many calories you eat a day. I made my own version of the 2468 diet to suit my schedule and ive already lost weight on it in only a week.
I do from Sunday to Saturday 700 600 400 200 400 600 700.
Everyone talks about needing the "higher cal day" to keep the metabolism alive but 800 calories is not going to boost it, its still too low. You'd need to do a proper refeed day if you want those benefits which is a CRAZY amount of calories which im sure noone here would purposefully do. The reason this diet works is its a VLCD (very low cal doet) AND psychologically its easier to stick to because there are what we'd consider higher cal days quite often to keep us sane and prevent binges :)

Hey! I was wondering what you count as a proper refeeding day? Because about once every 2 weeks I intentionally eat 1200 and is that too low? Or would rating more make me gain? I take a lax before bed so there's no food weight in the morning and I usually maintain the day after
i dunno why i'm back here

Does the 2468 diet HAVE to be in that order? So far I've finished one cycle and have lost 3 lbs in those 4 days however, today (which supposedly is my 200 cal day) I've eaten around 500 calories instead. I'm scared I've ruined the diet and will gain weight as repercussion :< Can the days be swtiched up?



You have to make sure you at least have the 800 to 200 drop!

I'm no expert on refeeds and I've never actually done one before (too scared I'll gain) but according to Lyle McDonald (I highly recommend his ebooks) how much you should eat and the duration of the refeed depends on your level of lean body mass and how much you exercise. And its not about number of calories (although I would think that 1200 wouldnt be enough), its about macronutrient ratio. You have to eat mainly starchy carbs during the refeed (not too much junk which has sugar), lean proteins and only a very little amount of fat (under 50g). The low fat is the key during the refeed!! If you eat more fat than this combined with the increased carbs this will make you gain fat.

I worked out what I needed to eat a while back if I were to do a refeed (based on my lean body mass at the time) and I remember it ending up being around 2000 cals or so which really freaked me out. If you google "Lyle McDonald a guide to flexible dieting PDF" you should be able to find that ebook in PDF form for free. It explains how to work out what a refeed would be for you :)

Thank you! I'm on keto right now (I love it!) but maybe I'll look at that next time I want to do something like that. I like experimenting with my body

Have you lost much weight so far doing keto? I think I do keto naturally when I restrict (I limit my carbs and eat mostly protein) and I feel dieting this way makes me lose more fat than just restricting/not worrying about macros, have you found that?

ALSO> im having a really hard time with my 200 calorie day. What foods are really low in calories that would FILL ME UP! thanks for help!! :)

I had an 180 day last week. Ate half a can of tuna in water with broccoli, green beans and some lemon juice for lunch. All of those are super filling. I only had some broth for dinner and didn't feel hungry at all that day.

I find I can restrict much easier, I've been in for about 10 days now and at first I had to have like 800 to sate my cravings but the past few days have been 350 and 550 easily.
But i need to have a lot of fat to stay in keto, personally, so I spend my calories on egg yolks and peanut butter/salmon (I'm almost entirely pescetarian, I was for years, then I was vegetarian, then vegan and I jumped into keto last Sunday and it's a double system shock)
i dunno why i'm back here

hi I'm new here sorry if I mess up replying and stuff
Anyway I'm doing the 2468 diet and I'm on day 3 and have ALREADY seen results !
I'm also drinking SkinnyCoffeeClub coffee and doing 30 mins regular LIT or HIIT exercise per day...
So long as you eat each day and eat nutriously within your limit I totally rate this diet !! Don't starve yourself !! It's not good & its unsustainable... But I hope I have inspired some of you ( please be responsible )

Thanks for this, I'm starting mine tomorrow. I'm hoping to be able to lose 40 pounds a month. I know it sounds crazy, but I'm tall and 275 pounds, meaning I have a higher BMR. I'm also gonna do a lot of cardio and drink a lot of coffee.

For your 200 cal day drink lots of tea, coffee and water. Also broth is good. And super low cal. Don't eat until the afternoon. In general wafer thin ham, light spreadable cheese and those sand which thins that are 100 Cals are great. Also snack o jacks and popcorn. And 40 cal per portion hot choc before bed helps with hunger pains so u can sleep :) and vitamins and a sports drink with electrolytes every week will help too. Try scrambled egg whites on crumpets. Less than 200 cal and particularly filling
