    Exclamation Can you build muscle on a low calorie diet?

    If you lift, sleep, and take into account muscle memory,
    you used to be big but are now small.



    Your diet is carbs, fats, and proteins, but less than 2,000cal a day...

    Been slowing cutting for the last2 months or so. I have most certianly gained strength on this cut. I think its because I have a very carb rich cutting diet. (no broscience, just my thoughts)

    I dont know if I gained any raw mass on this cut however.

    In your case as a noob, yes, you will gain muscle and strength while eating at low cals for a bit.
    "Instead of asking “what do I want from life?,” a more powerful question is, “what does life want from me?”

    What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.

    Up to a certain point.

    I've hit a wall on gaining any more while trying to cut down the bodyfat.
    Just keep pushing yourself over your limit, and look forward to the bulk.

    I lost over 150 pounds of fat, and at the end of my diet which took 2 years I was much more muscular than an average person. I don't think people understand that your body burning fat as a fuel source makes up for the calories you are not eating and thus yes, you can gain muscle while you lose fat.

    Why would you eat low calories if you are not fat? What is the point of that? Then no, you will not gain size on a low calorie diet. Low calorie diet only allows you to gain mass if you have extra body fat to fuel your deficiency.

    Here is a pic of me after my 2 year cut, the entire time I was pretty much calorie deficient:




    Another (dont mind the sepia tone I was using this for a profile pic)

    i have a low appetite and dont have time to cook at home, so i have to eat out, and most of the food here is carbs and fat, so i cant eat much of it.

    understand?

    You gain strength due to your CNS adapting, but your muscles won't expand. It just looks bigger because the fat goes away and you look leaner and more vascular.

    I understand but don't expect to gain muscle mass on a calorie deficient diet if you do not have another source of fuel like body fat. You simply cannot create something out of nothing.

    Most people get the illusion of building muscle while on a low calories diet as muscles become more defined, but science says that should you not be building any new muscle mass on a below maintaince calorie diet.

    ok....let me start of by saying it all depends on your genetics/height/size...and no i dont mean YOU SIT AT HOME AND BLAME it on your genetics eating **** and not lifting....phaggots that do that are just pure lame and sad....anyway back to the point...it all depends on your metabolism, hormones etc. its trial and error...seeing what works\whats your maintenance\ cut\ etc, i for one cut @ 1800-2000 and clean bulk at 2500-2800 depending on current weight and goals (srs)( i have the worst metabolism you can find in world lol) my friend on other side loses weight at 4000 cals (and his much skinnier then i am...i weigh @ 80-90kg depending on bf, my mate on other side is always lean 10-12% bf max and around 68-72kg)...so find out where your body is standing, start off at a certain given calorie and tweaking it week by week for your goals..



    there edited so you phaggots dont cry...

    Bulk on 1800? Jesus... I was cutting for 2 years on 3000 at first, then 2500 and finally 2000 during the final phases.

    gain strength? possible
    size? no. come on that's just common fugging sense

    I'm on 1800 or so calories a day and have been lifting heavy and haven't been getting bigger (no plans to) but strength slowly gaining but I'll be the first to admit I won't be impressing anyone with my lifting max numbers, I'm not delusional

    As you can see OP with all the different opinions, no one really knows what they are talking about and here is why. There are two ways to get big: genetics and steroids. With both, it's doesn't matter what the hell you do, you're going to get bigger.
