Well if you look at a calorie calculator it makes sense:http://www.calculator.net/calorie-calculator.html?ctype=standard&cage=27&csex=m&cheightfeet=5&cheightinch=7&cpound=190&cheightmeter=180&ckg=60&cactivity=1.55&printit=0&x=56&y=16Here's what I'm looking for from RHET:1. An explanation of why running a 700-800 kcal deficit is going to cause muscle loss2. An explanation of how running a large deficit "paints me into a corner" when you can only really plateau from a fat...
I'm just not getting how 1.75 lbs/wk is considered "extreme". Extreme to me is >2.0 lbs/wk.
Yes but what you're talking about is an extreme calorie deficit. I doubt I'm even over 1000 kcals deficit. 1.1 lbs/wk is like a 550 kcal deficit, add in the additional 200 kcals for reducing my intake and maybe 130 kcals for the cardio and I'm only at 880 kcals. A bit aggressive sure but not extreme, that's like a 1.75 lbs/wk cut.
I don't get it. If I stall at 2000 kcals that's because my maintenance level dropped to a certain level. No matter how fast I'm losing weight, once I get to a given weight my maintenance is going to be whatever it is, right? So if I get down to 170 and stall, it's because my maintenance cals are 2000 kcals and that's what I'm eating, but doesn't matter if I was eating 2000 kcals for the entire cut or was at 2200 then dropped to 2000 partway through. The maintenance...
Ah I thought you meant something else. Anyways, if I plateau as you are saying, and I'm not down to my target bf%, then I'll just need to cut cals further and/or increase cardio anyways. I don't see what that has to do with what I'm eating now.
I don't think I'll plateau at 2000 kcals. If I do I'll run maintenance for a week and then get back to it.I'm worried about strength and muscle loss because I'm trying to prevent it, not because I'm actually seeing it. My strength actually hasn't decreased yet, and I'm even still making progress on my squats.Fast enough for school. I'm moving in August and it'd be nice to be somewhat lean for when I move and start school and start meeting new people. And I'd probably...
Because I wasn't cutting fast enough in the first place. 1.1 lbs/wk isn't enough.
Well, at 187.0 for my official weigh in which means I'm down 8 lbs. Not bad, but that's like 1.1 lbs/wk. Cutting the cals and upping the cardio should help bump up that figure. 27 more lbs to go. Hoping to get to like 175 at least before I move.
I'm wondering if I do, but it's at least a good goal for an aggressive cut.FWIW I just weighed myself before taking a piss, was 191, then after was 186? Weighed myself like four more times and it kept coming out to 186 so maybe I've been losing and my scale's just fucked. Not sure about waist, but my girlfriend said I looked skinnier today lol
I've been hovering around 190 for a week or two now. Looking to drop 30 lbs. I'm guessing LBM is 140-150? IDK.Anyways, I've read a bunch about strength loss being an issue but muscle consumption being largely negligible as long as you're not running an extreme deficit or super lean (assuming you're lifting regularly and getting adequate protein/water/sleep obviously). RHET loves proving me wrong on this shit, tho, which is what I'm looking for if it's called for.
