Is zig zagging calories the souloutioun to weight loss Plateau?

I have about 10-15 more pounds of fat to lose and I know once i reach that 8 pound mark its going to be hard to lose that weight and Ive been at a plateau befor, but I didn't kno what to do and evetually gained all the weight I lost back due to being discouraged.

I hear that zig zagging calories is the best way to break that plateau, so my question to the experts is, is that theory really true and is it the best way?

I already do cardio and powerlifting so Im good in that department and I know exaclty what to eat and when to eat it, so I just need that one question answered kthxbai

I haven't heard of that method.

The thing is, if you don't just want a short time weight cut for a fight, but a long term fat reduction you should target at no more than about one(!) pound per week for a healthy weight loss.

For a long term fat reduction you need a negative energetic balance, meaning the intake of energy (calories) has to be lower then the use of energy, but it has to be reasonable and over a longer period of time. You have to find out your basic metabolism rate and active metabolism rate which combined are your total metabolism rate (I'm not sure whether these are the correct terms in English). The BMR is the daily energy your body needs just to "be" without any activities, AMR would be the addition of any activities like sitting, walking, sports etc. A rule of thumb for weight loss is to stay 500-800kcal below your TMR. You never want to go below your BMR, because the lack of available energy will force your body to reduce muscle mass.

I was reading that if you eat the same number each day your body gets used to it and starts to plateau
