I am really torn about this topic. I have profiled over 100-200 top female lifters. They generally do a lot of steady state and look amazing. I have never seen one of them talk about rebound issues other than the general weight gain that comes from some carb rebound, and just flat out wanting to relax for a couple weeks and eat "normally" again.

I am not trying to bash the study(s) by any means, but I am not certain that choosing the steady state life is a bad option. These women all talk about how great they feel, and how lifting and cardio have changed their lives.

Bringing this up because there are more variables at play here with health and happiness.
