    Is there any truth to this "squishy fat" claim?

    I'm not exactly "cutting" calories. As a matter of fact i'm most likely eating just a little under my maitenance. I eat anywhere from 2200-2500 calories a day, but on some days I notice that I look visibly softer and the fat on my stomach seems looser, giving me the illusion that I have added fat to my stomach. I do pretty decent intensity cardio about 4-5 days a week. Usually 2 miles of running @ 6.5 mph followed by 10 minutes of brisk walking (about 30-35 minutes in total)

    I've read in some articles online that this is normal when the body begins to break down body fat, but is it 100% true? or have I really just been overeating and actually adding body fat?

    Also, some of my calories for the past month or so have come from liquids.

    The calories from liquids have been coming from coffee in which I use light cream and splenda. Usually anywhere from 50-150 calories a day. Could this be causing me to look flabbier than usual?

    Generally I don't look fatter but yes fat becomes squishy or soft as it is burned. It makes sense physically, too if you think about it. Fat, as it is burned, may also fill up with water temporarily (squishy and you appear to be fatter at times) which is what might be happening to you. If you're doing enough cardio and eating at sub 2500 calories every day, you're most likely in a deficit, even if it is just a slight one.
