    Maybe - but maybe you have not estimated your daily calorie requirement accurately. I would lose weight fast on only 2200 calories. My TDEE is more like 2750 and I am 87kg with about 14%.

    No, a surplus is not essential for muscle gain. It takes some energy - and if you are restricting your energy intake (dieting) then your body will progressively de-prioritise muscle gain as the...

    The more I learn, the more I think that repeated bouts effects mean that the work needed to create a muscle growth stimulus is a constantly changing thing for an individual. This means it's...

    The top set of numbers looks OK for a startoff, you don't need to use ratios to judge macros. Use the guidelines in the sticky threads instead - but use your lean or target bodyweight, not your...

    No you don't have to gain fat. Or at least you may gain some just due to day to day tracking errors. But you could aim for a whisker over maintenance and still build muscle just as fast.

    Once a day when you wake up will be fine. Remember this is being done to allow you to see the long term trend, not because there is something significant about intra day changes - that is just...

    If you still have fat then you still have to diet... you can take a break from dieting and focus on muscle gain, keeping calories close to maintenance if you want. At some point though, fat will have...

    Very little if you've only been training 1.5 months. You probably haven't gained much new muscle so there isn't a lot to lose. Even an experienced lifter is not going to lose much if anything in 1...

    Weigh yourself more often - every morning if possible. That way we can check the numbers and be better able to tell what is water weight and what is real fat (or muscle) loss. Just a start and end...

    We need to know
    a) if you are measuring your calorie intake - otherwise you are just guessing
    b) over what period of time have you been measuring your weight - if it's not long enough, you can't...

    I wouldn't call it a "dislocation" in the sense that it's not an injury.

    Everyone has asymmetries. There is nothing you can do about it other than stop worrying about it.

    Muscle and fat tissue changes slowly

    Water weight changes quickly

    Genetics. Proportions, muscle shape and fat distribution being the chiefest of these.

    The obvious advice is to take it easy until you feel more ready. If you were using a set program, either cut it down or stretch it out timewise. Just do a few sets of compounds and stop if you feel...

    Thing is... you could get to the same lean mass and fat % as him and still not look like him.
