You are a super human specimine. I think everyone is different. I can do the super low calorie thing for a couple days, but I always start dragging in the gym and my strength levels will start to drop.

I dont want to loose muscle while dieting. You did.

Also, stop hanging around whinny people. It's a diet, not the end of the world.
