Try the "reacharound diet", it works for me.

Hey David, I know you were able to shed a lot of weight fairly quickly
on Lyle's diet. But, did you ever test your strength levels while
Well, I'm not David but I did just drop some weight for strongman. In
early January I cut out refined carbs (save for ~30 g timed right around
my workouts) except for on one cheat meal during the week and one day on
weekends. I added 25 mg ephedrine / 200 mg caffeine 3x a day, did 1-2
20 min light cardio sessions a week, plus one or two longer walks/hikes,
and did hard interval-type (tire flip, truck drag, farmers walk)
strongman event training once a week on weekends plus one event at some
point during the week. I dropped 15 lbs in 10 weeks with no noticeable
strength loss except maybe in the press, and got stronger at the front
squat and events (may have been a skill component there though).
Well, I've got 6 weeks to drop 10 pounds. I want to be 225-226 by the
end of the week and maintain that weight for a couple of weeks or
perhaps drop a little more. I want to weigh about 221 on May 5th.
Once I hit my target weight (actually I dipped below it, didn't weigh in
often enough) I relaxed my diet a bit, still fairly clean though, and my
press is stronger than ever as well.
As I understand it the E/C stack wouldn't be a problem for you in the
USAPL as long as you stop more than a week out, but you'd want to double
check on that. Also you'd want to be sure to allow yourself time to
taper off of it or you will crash bad.
Yes, that is correct.
I still allowed myself carbs in the form of whole grains etc. I read
Lyle's PSMF book and even tried the strict version for a week but my
training went to hell.
I can understand that.
