One of the most visited articles on the slimbirdy.com website is this one – What I eat in a day. People are trying to see what others eat on a Ray Peat style diet as well as their calorie intake a day. Just to see how it differs from what they are doing, to get the results they want.
In a few conversations and posts I’ve seen in Ray Peat Groups this week, people are advising others not to calorie restrict or go into a calorie deficit. Supposedly it’s no good for their health.
Is this true though? What exactly does everyone mean by calorie deficit or calorie restriction?
