I think you're overestimating just how much you are going to be able to recomposition. The true recomposition of 1lb of fat for 1 lb of muscle is a pipe dream unless you are taking drugs or use a...

Since you’re starting back I would just keep it as simple as possible for a few months so you don’t overwhelm yourself. Keep a consistent deficit and aim for 1.5 to 2 pounds fat loss per week...
