Re: Can We Gain Muscle on a Caloric Deficit?
[ QUOTE ]
Hopefully we'll get updates from others that are cutting on the AD (Venom for sure -- not sure if Calvin is using the AD to bulk or cut) and see if they're able to put on LBM during their cuts as well.

I absolutely am.
I am convinced you can do it. I have this cut.
Iíll give summary results as always, but I am happy with my progress.
The more I study, the more I am against diets where you get fat. I just think it is completely inefficient. People end up consuming "empty calories" that do nothing for them but add fat.
I think a lot of the reason people don't gain muscle on a cut, is because they don't believe they can. Sounds simple, but there is a boat load of evidence backing up how much your self efficacy can impact your performance and behaviors.
I don't want to get into this too much now though, but soon. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
