Plus given the relatively high volume of smolov, I'd be willing to guess very very few people can successfully run a program a.) without carbs and b.) drastically cutting

But I'm definitely following this log as you seem to be in tune with your body which is the most important thing
I've always had trouble getting enough protein. If I get over 200g a day then that works for me.

You're definitely right that much of my initial weight loss was water from dropping carbs, but I was very surprised at how little "kick back" I got when I started eating carbs again. I only jumped back up a few pounds. The other few pounds I've put back on are completely due to my own decisions. I also noticed a huge difference in the mirror when I lost weight, only some of which can be attributed to "drying out" from cutting carbs. There was an obvious drop in fat on my stomach.

The intensity of Smolov absolutely has everything to do with my decision to allow myself to gain a little weight. But I'm starting to get into the groove of the program now, and I'm going to see if I can back off on my intake a little and still keep the weights moving.

Unfortunately this diet did not work whatsoever for me. Any form of carb depletion just destroys my strength and leaves me drained. I'm not going to tell anyone not to try it because I read tons of stories of people having great success with these cyclical keto diets, but unfortunately it was a complete failure for me.
