    Eating at maintenance after a lengthy diet is actually not easy because your appetite ramps up and you want to eat more and more.

    Maybe have one more day at maintenance, focus on mostly eating...

    Yes,

    sustained deficit that's too large will still result in muscle loss. Protein helps a lot but there is a limit.

    It does matter.

    If your TDEE is really 2500 and you start running 1400 calories, you would risk losing muscle - same problem as last time no doubt.

    do you know your TDEE from collecting daily weigh-in and calorie data - or just from using a calculator? This is an important question - because otherwise a deficit number is not much use, especially...

    That depends on your stats

    Which is why I asked for your stats

    Also, do you know your TDEE from collecting data - or just from using a calculator (in which case it's little better than a guess).

    Don't lose muscle - that' will help. By not using an excessive deficit.

    Doing it slowly by alternating muscle gain and fat loss phases will help too.

    It would help to know your stats (age,...

    It's not that important in the context of your overall programming. Generally the advice is to push as hard as you can on the way up (so tempo is naturally dictated by how heavy the weight is) and...

    I'm always sceptical of BF% tests since even expensive lab equipment can be way off. If you have well defined abs then perhaps you are right.

    However, to answer your question, you can make a...

    Most people have more fat to lose than they think. This includes fat on the limbs.

    So you could diet and train using weights in the usual way - and not worry about getting "too muscular" in the...

    It's not enough information on its own.

    A good program will also recommend an exertion level in each set.

    For example, a high level of exertion might see you doing 10, 9, 8, 8. Doing it the...

    You are doing hypertrophy.

    Go to the workout programs forum and read the "size vs. strength" sticky thread.

    The person you are replying to posted 2 years ago - and is also banned so you probably won't be getting a reply ...

    The last 2 estimates you asked for were over 20% and that was less than a month ago.

    So yes, it's normal. Still over 20% IMO

    Lose another 7kg and then ask.

    Neither.

    Supplements are certainly not the answer.

    The best bet is to learn a little - then you aren't dependent on someone trying to sell you something - whether it's a magic powder or their...

    I'm a little older than you - weight training can be the solution to problems with areas like lower back and shoulders - if you do it correctly. So don't just write off those areas and avoid training...

    ^ What he said. The only thing I would add is that when you use a calculator to work out your maintenance calorie level, it's only a guess. We often get people say "I'm in a 500 cal deficit but only...

    Alcohol is technically a poison. There is no safe dose - but small amounts will cause so little harm you won't notice it. But let's not pretend (BTW, I'm aiming to have a beer this evening).
