    I listened to Borge's interview on the "Brains and Gains" podcast and then stumbled upon the interview with Ray Cronise from the same group: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFRTu8FXY

    I didn't follow the science (even listening to it several times), but basically, you have to eat more because you're working out, and it isn't more effective because "it's just burning glucose." (the 37 to 43 minute mark). No clue what that actually means.

    This follows along with the studies that Jason Fung has cited that fasting doesn't kill muscle: https://www.dietdoctor.com/fasting-muscle-mass

    A lot of the bros hate SD because they won't be able to workout, but throw out eating too, and that's a ton of free time!

    Don't forget, its just fine to split Strategic Deconditioning into upper and lower. So, you SD the lower body on a different schedule than the upper body. So if you really hate not training that much, this allows you to train all the time and still get in some SD when you need it.
