I've educated myself to the point where I can easily lose weight and all, as I went from my former 480 lbs to my current 295 lbs. Really happy about that but now that I've searched all over BB.com and the stickies for answers to my latest question but alas, I couldn't find anything specific or to my liking.
Forgive me if I ask what seems like a stupid question but here it is: on a deficit, you lose weight, simple as that. On a surplus, you gain weight (and gain muscles). If it's highly recommended by almost everyone that you lift while losing weight and thus, resulting in that "toned" or "fit" look when one reaches low enough bodyfat, how is it possible on a deficit where bulking of any sort is impossible?
Highly appreciated and really thankful to anyone who can fill me in on this question.
