Everything I’ve seen insists on the necessity of stopping and doing the break-out after 4 weeks, but I have yet to see any convincing justification of that admonition. Good/bad/catastrophic/awesome idea, and why?
2 straight months of Velocity fits my goals better - “Drop as much body fat (and, less importantly, as little muscle) as possible by August 25.” If I have to do a break-out and sit at maintenance for two weeks before school, I feel like I’ll be “wasting” the month of August. Besides, I love the way I feel on this diet, except for being hungry all the time.
I mean it’s essentially keto in liquid form, yeah? There’s no rule about breaking out of keto after 28 days. But let’s not get into the long-term stuff, I’m talking strictly 2 months for someone who is otherwise the epitome of health.
The question is not whether I want to do it (I sure as hell don’t), or whether I can (I will trade suffering for results all damn year if I have to), or whether I need to (obviously not) but whether you have a compelling reason why I should not.
