Default Re: Can We Gain Muscle on a Caloric Deficit?


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]

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
