    low calorie diet and gain muscle?

    is it possible to build muscle doing high weight low rep exercises, if you only consume 1200-1300 calories a day? If it is not possible to build muscle and burn fat simultaneously do you at least retain or tone your muscle with this sort of diet?

    No it's not unless you are a noob or returning to training (even then on those calories extremely unlikely).

    Would you retain muscle? I doubt it as that is VERY low calories for someone your size, so you would be losing fat/muscle

    Maybe you should have ditched the shakes (taking a guess they were "weight gainers")??

    thanks for the suggestions.. i really do appreciate it.. i am not trolling i have been trying this out.. i have gone from 206 to 189 now..
    @alwaystryin: your right i was doin the gnc wheyabolic stuff but now just do some simple whey..
    i will probably ditch this idea, the consensus seems to be that i'm going to be losing muscle mass.. i will try to understand the macro ratios and get a better understanding of what i need to do... i truly am thankful for the responses.
