True or false: you can lose weight faster by drastically reducing calories, but it only works if you remain consistent and you will also lose more muscle than you would with a slightly higher calorie intake?

I realize most reputable coaches recommend a slow cut to save muscle and maintain body composition; but if my goal is to drop fast, wouldnt a much lower intake work so long as I remain consistent? Im guessing that when people fail at doing this its because theh do it for a few days and then binge eat. This would also explain why people who are under duress of some kind or have limited availability of food often drop weight faster as well.

Well, there are a lot of moving parts to a fat loss diet, but generally speaking your statement would be true.
