🚨How to maintain muscle while
You know how gradually getting stronger aka the progressive overload principle is what signals your body to begin the muscle building process? Well on a fat loss diet, just maintaining your current levels of strength is what now signals your body to maintain muscle
If that signal goes away, your body need to keep your pretty muscle tissue around goes away right along with it.
That’s why the insanely stupid myth of lifting heavier weights to build muscle but then lifting lighter weights
(for higher reps) when you want to lose fat get lean and get toned is the absolute worst thing you could possibly believe when you’re trying to avoid losing muscle. In reality, you lift heavy weight to build muscle, and then lift that same heavy weight if you want to actually maintain that muscle.
small calorie deficit (200-500cals)
Why not a larger deficit? Why not reduce calories by a lot more and make fat loss happen even faster?
Well, aside from it worsening metabolic slowdown, hormonal issues, hunger, mood, sleep.
and simply being harder to actually sustain another major downside of a large caloric deficit is that it will have the largest negative impact on training and recovery.
and that means that reducing your calorie intake by too much will increase the potential for strength and muscle loss.
for that reason, I’d recommend most people stick with no more than a moderate deficit.
💥Eat enough protein
losing fat without losing muscle is all about eating enough protein every day. Numerous studies have proven this to be true.
Even in the absence of a proper weight training routine, more of the weight you lose will be body fat rather than muscle mass just as a result of an increased protein intake. the first step of any muscle-preserving diet is always getting your ideal amount of protein for the day.
💥Keep carbs as high as possible
carbs are the ideal fuel source for higher intensity workout.
