    You might not actually be 12%. It's notoriously hard to measure BF% accurately. I'm guessing you used a BIA device?

    It would be better to post a picture in the BF estimation thread in the fat...

    What actually happened? Did you get a spasm? Did you get pain and stiffness immediately or a few hours later?

    It doesn't matter that much. They all get converted to the same substrate anyway.

    For example, an apple has simple carbs but will probably be more filling for less calories than potato chips -...

    I wouldn't decrease the weight from what I was using before.

    But then I wouldn't be lifting any weight 'without control' anyway.

    Absolutely.

    They train the upper glute which is not well trained by a lot of other exercises. It has also helped me with lower back issues especially when squatting.

    IIFYM is not a wacky fad diet. It's simply a statement of how the body works. Calories are the units of energy. An energy deficit WILL lead to tissue loss.

    It sounds like you are eating too little. How fast are you losing weight? If it's more than about 2-3kg per month, that's too fast and some of that may be muscle.

    Yes, you need to increase...

    I wouldn't do that... it may even be that you lost more muscle because the stimulus wasn't as good.

    No, you just need to eat more food if your goal is to gain weight - and don't do unnecessary cardio.

    If you gained 20lbs of muscle you would look good at 150-160. A little bit of muscle goes a long way and has much more visual impact than low BF% for this scenario.
