comment Uneven upper/lower body
Could be both I guess, but I don't think the head grows a lot at that age, so it's probably mostly weight loss.

comment To lose fat in ketosis should I avoid fatty foods?
The body can generate glucose from fat through gluconeogenesis, if this wasn't possible, periods of starvations would make people black out from hypoglycemia. And "there is no chance the sugar would be converted to fat"? Really? Got something to back up that statement? Lipogenesis is just myth? Sugar/beer belly doesn't exist?

comment Is the deadlift necessary for an intermediate bodybuilder?
Yes I love it as well, not arguing that. Most of those back muscles are covered by rows or chins though. I also read that both deadlifts and squats have very low abdominal and oblique activation. It's a great exercise for lower back side of your core, but not the front.

comment Is the deadlift necessary for an intermediate bodybuilder?
Overrated not because they are bad but because they are a bit over-hyped, mainly due to the false idea that compound exercises can give a general muscle hypertrophy through higher T levels. Don't you think squats and back extensions are sufficient to cover the deadlift? Deadlifts activate lats as well but most workouts include them anyway.

comment Is a drastic calorie reduction harmful?
This is a good answer. Regarding metabolism, it does decrease as calorie intake decreases, but every decreased calorie increases your weight loss, it's not like you eventually start adding weight so to speak.

comment Is it theoretically possible to burn fat without any training only based on diet?
Yeah but diabetics are not the standard case, they have a disrupted metabolism. Healthy people can eat large amounts of carbs without any problems. The traditional Okinawa diet was 85% carbs and they live to be a 100 years old! As long as we're talking glucose based carbs and not alcohol or fructose, carbs are fine.

Well as you lose weight, your calorie need will decrease due to lower body weight and the bodies tendency to favour a certain weight. If you keep the calorie deficit constant, i.e. decrease your intake, your body fat will decrease (although slower and slower), you will get hungrier for the same deficit, making it harder, and eventually you die.
