Calories on fat fast?

I know Brock did something like 1200-1400 cals a day. But from what I’ve read from authors like Lyle McDonald that is too low, he says not to ever go below 1000 below maintenance.

What is the general consensus on how low is too low? My maintenance is ~2500, and I am going to be using prop. and masteron on my diet. Any input?

Oh, and before anyone says “mast and prop arent going to make you lose weight”, I know. I am using them to maintain my lean body weight hopefully…

Hey man I am on the fat fast diet right now and I let my caloric intake go between 1300 and 1600 a day. I have doen real well I ahve been on it for 17 days and I have lost 10 lbs.

any idea how your lean mass is holding up? are you on any sort of AS/prohormone?

Yeah my lean mass is holding up real well. I havent lost any strength. Yeah Ia m using 35 sprays of androsol in the morning and at night.
