Dieting without lifting and sufficient protein is a recipe for skinny fat
No you can lose fat or gain muscle and under rare circumstances do both but at no point does fat transform into muscle.
Don't forget the second half of the weight loss equation. (Calories out). You can cut on 2500 calories if your willing to do some cardio with your lifting or simply increase your activity levels.
Learning to cook is pretty damn helpful when it comes to cutting.
No, what he's saying is what determines over all fat loss is the size of your calorie deficit not when you eat.
Not to beat a dead horse but like everyone else said you need some mass bro. Have you been lifting on your cut?
Your symptoms sound more like your Test levels are low. This is a pretty common side effect from a prolonged calorie deficit. I would take a two week diet break and eat at maintenance or slightly...
It is entirely possible that at 126 lbs your maintenance is 1800-2000 calories. You may need to cut at lower than 1700.
This pretty much nails it.
1lb/week till your happy with what you see in the mirror. You are far from fat now, I would guess 15-20bs and you will look lean.
No squats or dead lifts? Those two lifts will put more muscle on you than your entire workout.
EC stack is effective and a lot cheaper than OEP. Like most have said, it really come's down to diet but EC gives you a small metabolic advantage and has great appetite suppressing qualities.
Your blowing it a bit out of proportion, you have an easy 2-4 week cut to get back to skinny ripped. To be frank, you would find a muscular look easier to maintain if you had another 15 lbs of...
You beat me to it!!
Your brain runs on glucose but the liver can convert enough protein for you to survive with no carbs. The fog is you body adapting.
Eat a low calorie meal that will keep you full before you go out. Egg whites, chicken breast, greens etc... That way when your out it's not such a test of will power. All week long you pre plan...
A lot of guys talk about will power and gutting it out. They are right in some respects but you also should consider food choices that help you out on days you want to cheat a little. For example,...
You need to add some muscle bro. I recommend a nice clean bulk. Eat around 300 calories over maintenance and lift like hell.
It's in your head bro. Your not going to lose muscle eating 2100 calories a day with 180g of it coming from protein.
What!??!!! A tablespoon = as much as I can fit on the spoon right!?
