    Was a great first LTB course for me to take, full of science backed information, I learned loads from three short lessons!!

    An excellent course from Danny Lennon. It's always interesting to get a more nuanced understanding of a topic that you previously considered fairly straight forward.

    This really opened my eyes on the benefits of larger calorie deficits. Really interesting.

    Great way to look into calorie deficits, the studies also were interesting to see ways of which people benefited from more aggressive deficits.

    great to the point course on what a calorie deficit is and how to create one, I really like how he used (%) for deficits rather than just a hard (#) of calories when creating the level of deficit.

    A great course to top up your calorie deficit knowledge or to learn the basics. Covers some great scientific studies too!

    I really liked this course because it opened my mind to using aggressive approaches in the right manner for the right clients.

    I loved the studies that I can now use for reference for blogs and client educations.

    I was one of those trainers who always goes slow and steady but this has changed my mind quite significantly and I will try to apply the right strategy with each new client.

    I think the title of this review about sums it up. The comparisons between larger calorie deficits to shorter ones was looked at from a few different angles, with plenty of studies sited, and was actually thought of in real world scenarios.

    this course was a very productive use of time (especially considering its a short course) and definitely provided me with things I will use with clients.

    Calorie deficits can at once seem simple and mega complicated so this course was great in getting a few ideas and strategies . clear in my head.

    This was a really great way to jump in for my first Lift The Bar course. Every time I listen to Danny I learn something and this was no different. I definitely picked up some really useful lines of thinking advice is grab a pen and paper, jot things down as you go and enjoy it :-)
