Default Getting Back on Track: Dieting then Muscle Gain.

So I recently had a tree fall on my house and between staying in hotels, talking to insurance people and whatnot I said **** it to my diet. I didn't bring my protein powder with me and I went out with my friends to bars and restaurants every night. Also tried great ice cream places, ate wood oven pizza, breaded fish tacos, 21 year old whiskey, cinnamon toast crunch cereal and some Mc Griddles sandwiches for good measure.

Bad idea. I still worked out but I ate wayyy too much over maintenance.

So now I am going to log my diet to hold myself accountable and then get back to muscle gain.

Starting weight: 128lbs.
Goal weight: 120-122lbs.

I will log here daily starting on Thursday.

Been on and off for consistency these past few days.

For a few days I am going to eat at 1600 cals/140g protein and then go back to 1800 cals per day for the rest of this 2 week mini cut so by Feb 7th. I'll evaluate after that if I need to keep dieting.

Messed up my diet today....ate 3200 calories. And that's unacceptable.

I will start logging here daily to make sure I stay at 1600-1700 calories per day.

Nope.

Feb 1st: 126.6lbs. 1600 calories/115g protein. Finally getting calories below maintenance but gotta bring protein up higher.

Feb 2nd: 124.4lbs. 2020 calories/140g protein. Ate a bit more food today but I was more active than usual + had a leg workout.

After week 1, I'll aim to lose 1.5lb per week and then do a deload once I reach 121lbs. Then I can go back to gaining muscle.

Ive realized a big issue is that I havent done a deload in over 10 weeks.

I am going to deload at maintenance (2050 calories) for 1 week before getting back to dieting. That way I'll be fresher to handle a caloric deficit and lifting heavier to maintain muscle.

You're all over the place. You need to just focus on adding mass. You're already excessively small.

You don't need to Deload you need to eat more food and lift heavier weight

Thank you Lyle. This website is a game changer once you understand the mechanisms behind fat loss/muscle gain.

Spun my wheels for years prior to finding this site.

I am at 16-17% body fat. I will be dieting down to at least 12-13% before going back to gaining muscle. Try bulking at 17% for 6 months, it doesn't end well.
