    If it really was a suplus of 750, you would be gaining something like 500g every week... I'm guessing you used a calculator to work out your maintenance, those things are just guesses. Real life will...
  • No, common myth. GH rises during a fast but its...

    No, common myth. GH rises during a fast but its function in that instance is energy mobilisation, it does not grow muscle by itself. That requires a cocktail of signals + sufficient energy and...
  • You can't be in a surplus of 750 cals if you are...

    You can't be in a surplus of 750 cals if you are only gaining 300g a month. Your maintenance is just higher than you think - or maybe there are errors in your counting.

    You don't need that much...

    low carb determines if you are in ketosis or not

    IF is not relevant to ketosis

    Neither IF nor ketosis are (directly) relevant to producing a calorie defict

    Only a net calorie deficit will...

    If you aren't getting weaker, you probably are not losing muscle.

    Body composition tests can be horribly inaccurate. Just use your general strength levels to decide if you've lost muscle or not.

    1. You can do the math. Put this into myfitnesspal then tell us the calories and macros.
    2. Yes, it counts. Some vegetable proteins are not as 'complete' as whey or meat but they still count. This...

    I must admit that peaking / tapering seem like a black art to me and I don't generally pursue peak strength goals so I haven't tried to wrestle with that particular problem.

    The idea that the...

    There are a range of ways you can do trap bar deadlifts, involving more or less legs. But it takes discipline to engage the quads more and the back less. You essentially keep your torso as upright as...

    Not really.

    99% of your results will come from total calories and protein intake.

    Protein is the only macro that is somewhat time sensitive. However, none of your meals are too low in protein...

    food labels can be a long way out - as much as 20%

    Foods like chicken wings have a particularly high variability in terms of fat content which obviously affects calories a lot.

    But if you use...

    Yes

    It's just changes in water weight. Muscle and fat don't come or go rapidly. You can always explain fat loss by the size of a calories deficit. Your underlying fat loss is probably 2-3lbs a...

    That happens.

    Still averaging 5lbs a week. You can probably expect the average to deteriorate to 2-3lbs a week over time.

    4 weeks and 312 -> 292 sounds like you are losing weight to me.

    You don't mention a timeframe for the alleged plateau or weight regain. You might just be reacting to day by day fluctuations. Keep...

    By "just lifting", I assume you mean no cardio. In that case yes - but you still need to pay attention to nutrition to be certain of results.

    I would opt for phases where you focus on muscle gain...

    They didn't go into that kind of detail but I can't say I've experienced a significant strength boost after a deload. In fact peak strength usually suffers a little but I find that I feel fresher -...
