Don't think so. I usually eat more carbs and less fat than I did during the vacation. Anyway, I'm back to my usual habits and caloric intake so it will just take a couple of weeks until its back to normal.

It's somewhat impossible to lose a significant amount of strength, muscle, and gain a significant amount of fat in a two week period

I would imagine laying still (like at a hospital) for 2 weeks straight would decrease your muscle mass a good bit. If you at the same time live of Oreos and chocolate milk why not.

Yes, obvious exceptions being extreme illness / recovery from major injury, combined with immobilization / bed rest for muscle loss. At the same time muscle will also be spared if consuming a significant caloric surplus unless the diet is extremely low in leucine. Oreos + chocolate milk would actually do a pretty good job of sparing muscle.

 

I doubt @conceptionist met either criteria while on holiday

If for bodybuilding purposes it doesn't matter as long as it is consistent.

Yes, unless you are on bed rest or in space you aren't atrophying and you would need to be eating way over maintenance with shit hormone levels to gain significant fat stores in two weeks.

True. Was exaggerating.
Most likely I'm used to always have a certain amount of pump and stiffness from training, since I do full body every other day.

Like I've said before, I don't venture too far outside of this thread here. Took me a while to realize SF is kind of a shit show. The ToJ soap opera is what completely turned me off. I am looking forward to trolling the SW&D WAYWT thread with Speedo pics from Croatia though.

Thrift thread is normally pretty solid, except when catfights break out, and when it goes off-topic.

PES just released a Frosted Chocolate Cupcake protein. Sounds delicious.

Been eating a 750 kcal deficit and somehow gained three pounds over the course of two weeks of strict dieting and hitting the gym. Don't feel bloated either. No idea what's going on, hoping it's just water that'll drop but it's really weird. Not sure if I should go another week or just add in some daily cardio now.
post #56803 of 57265
Might just be the times you're measuring on, do you average all the measurements for a week/whatever time period to compare?
post #56804 of 57265
Cardio. I assume you added some muscle which might add to weight and not lose it. Im the same way. If I concentrate on weight training Ill gain a couple pounds before losing. If I go cardio Ill maintain for a week or two and then start losing.
post #56805 of 57265
Gaining a couple of pounds of muscle mass in that short time frame is not realistic. Not averaging the weight fluctuations or measuring inconsistently seems more likely.
