from my experience its usually easier to underestimate you needs while cutting and just aim for more protein relative your caloric intake...what? 75-80 calories/ hour is pretty standard RMR for a 180 pound male. Bump it down to 200-250 over 3 hours if you want to split hairs.
What does protein intake have to do with your RMR?from my experience its usually easier to underestimate you needs while cutting and just aim for more protein relative your caloric intake
you can always bump up in increments depending on how active you are
that said heavy cardio is secondary to weight training
how full you feel after you eatWhat does protein intake have to do with your RMR?
This has nothing to do with what I was talking about. But OK.how full you feel after you eat
mentally it plays a part in how you approach training
FYI I use this routine with a fasting period typically
small early-noon meal (<500 cals)
large dinner (1500-2500 cals depending on the goal)
Doubtful that you will be able to add a significant muscle while trying to also lose fat half of of your body fat percentage. I don’t want to say totally impossible but it’s pretty close.I'm trying to add muscle mass while burning/losing fat.
My body fat: 12%
Weight is: 165
I want to cut down bodyfat to single digits. Between 6%-8% bodyfat is my goal.
Is this attainable if I eat 5-6 meals per day? The meals I eat will be clean and mostly protein (Eggs w/Oatmeal, Chicken Breasts, Lean Ground Turkey w/Rice).
I plan to workout in gym 4-5 times per week. Cardio (jog outside) 4-5 times per week.
no problemInformative info in this thread thanks.
