great weight loss success story.i am glad to see that he corrected the mistake of starving himself at 1000cal/day... that is unhealthy and you'll lose a ton of muscle mass.speaking of muscle mass; anyone who is trying to lose weight, 'bulking' (eating more than you burn) for a month or two, with the intent to gain muscle mass, (so just eat 500-1000cal more than you burn/day) right before you 'cut' (eating at a deficit) will help increase your metabolism. think of it as increasing your engine from a 250cc to a 1000cc... you'll require more gas(calories) and thus your base metabolic rate will increase.also, i wouldn't cut weight at more than a 1500cal/day deficit or you will end up with a lot of left over skin. the best scenario to lose a lot of weight (100+ pounds) would be to cut ~30lbs over the period of 2 months, then stop try to 'clean bulk' (bulk eating very clean) for a month or so to try to gain some more muscle mass (2-5 pounds) and strength. after that quick 1 month bulk repeat your cutting phase for another 2 months to try to lose another ~30lbs.TLDR:you want to try to gain some muscle mass too, it will be easy for most of you as you will see "noob gains" extremely quicksource: my internet PHD... but seriously you can do your own research to double check what i've said
