View Full Version : Is overeating on a deficit minimized by lifting weights?

10-30-2016, 04:09 PM
Right now I'm on a caloric deficit. 10 more lbs to go. Sometimes I overeat by a lot and was wondering if me lifting weights every week minmizes that?

Like a normal person who pigs out one day, most of it will probably become fat right? But for someone like me who lifts weights too, will some of the excess calories go to that too?

Or is the difference just minimal?

It's exceedingly unlikely you will gain fat while on a deficit. If you are overeating to the point where you are eating above maintenance, then you are not on a deficit, and some of the excess calories will likely be stored as fat. Depending on the severity of your deficit and intensity/length of your training, some will go to glycogen and muscle as well. Probably more will go to glycogen and muscle if you are training hard then if you were just dieting without exercise.

You have to calculate everything properly based on your base rate, diet, activity level...Id check this out for more details. Get it down right and get any guess work out of it for success.

lifting brings your maintenance up and likely increases your capability of refilling glycogen. switch to eating high carb crap, at least your performance will raise

refeeds ftw

well training like 4 times a week each session burning extra 300-500 kcal can add up to allow more food brah
