You’re going to hear this a lot but it’s different for everyone. The length of time should be similar to how long you’ve been dieting! You heard us right...the longer you’ve been a chronic dieter, the longer you should be reverse dieting. We recommend doing a full reverse when you do a reverse. Meaning that you max out and push the limits of your metabolic capacity. Pushing the limits of your reverse is important so that when it’s time for you to cut again, it can be the most effective possible! But do whatever is comfortable for you. That’s the bottom line. Increasing food intake for some women is scary, as they fear gaining weight, but you have to remember that you’re not meant to be cutting forever. Your body WANTS to be at maintenance. The place your body comfortably sits without losing or gaining weight. We recommend staying in maintenance at LEAST for 2 months before thinking about going into another cut (if you choose to do so).
