Really, the only thing you can eat that doesnt result in your metabolism and other factors rising and falling is water.

Sugar free gum, calorie free things, even inedible objects result in your bodies digestive processes starting up, even if they dont do much.
I dont think the diet in the OP makes sense based on that.

Muscle (and other tissue) are always breaking down. (Looks at Arnold today). You need to constantly store calories as muscle in order to maintain.
But you can only do that so much. Beyond that maintenance level, further excess calories still get stored as fat.
The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there's little good evidence. Far better...is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.

But not if you reach the magical state of nirvana ketosis.

Even in the scientifically and medically documented state of nutritional ketosis, it's very difficult to reduce body fat percentage below a fairly reasonable threshold.

20 - 25%, for someone who was obese.

The higher one's peak body fat percentage, the higher the minimal stable body fat percentage would be.

This is not unique to LCHF Ketogenic diets, BTW. Even bariatric surgery patients report the same. Short of fasting (actual fasting not mimicking fasting) or lipo-suction I don't believe any diet plan can consistently do better.

and Donald Trump is President of the United States.
