The key is to be sensible.
Pick your template based upon your performance goals rather than to "cut fat" or "add 10lbs of mj5scle" . Then eat a bit less or add a bit more activity.
Eating 75% less food, removing all carbs, adding a few sets of everything, adding 2 extra conditioning seasions plus a 30 minute walk per day, for example, is a poor choice.
It is also what seems to be the go to chooce for most.
