Calories as opposed to just protein for building muscle

The commonly held wisdom is that to gain muscle/strength, one must be on a "bulk" diet of some kind of caloric surplus, making sure to hit good protein/fat minimums, right? But those minimums can also be hit or even exceeded I've found, while actually in a caloric deficit, even a deeper one (>500...

Farm Eggs and Racing Heart

Such a odd thing. Some farm eggs give me heart palpitations and others don't. I think it's the feed or the breeds or both. Who the heck knows. I do know that some farmers feed their birds kelp which contains iodine but I eat salt which contains iodine and no big deal. Has this happened to you guys?

Any downsides to slowly cutting weight?

By slow cutting I’m talking about a 200-300 calorie deficit instead of 500+. I’m mainly looking to lean down form ~20-25% body fat down to 10-12% and I want to maintain as much strength and muscle possible. I guess my concern is if there is any harm in being in a deficit like this for a long time?
