Muscle loss while cutting
Assume plenty of protein and strength training.
Is there any way to estimate how much mass is lost to fat vs. lean mass on a caloric deficit?
What variables do we know the relationships for (I assume bf% and deficit size are huge ones), and do we at least know ranges for the variables we can't really quantify or modify (like genetics) so that we can average the ranges or get a feel for the variances / deviations of each variable with respect to their impact on the sparing rate?
Are there any good studies or findings on this this topic that anyone can offer? (ideally on test subjects who were getting enough protein and also undergoing strength training, and getting tested with DEXA scans to more accurately determine the changes in lean and fat mass)
