In a big caloric deficit and not losing any weight? Do this

How many times have you been on a deficit to lose weight?

I bet in some cases you’ve simply created a big deficit by eating way less than before.

But here are the bad news…

If you’re in a deficit and you’re not losing any weight, then it means you’re not on a real deficit.

Let me explain.

Maybe you’re in what you have calculated to be a deficit for you at that point, yet…

If you’re not losing weight, that’s because your predicted and actual calories are different.

This doesn’t mean you have to create even a more aggressive deficit.

You might not even need to create a deficit at all.

It all depends on your situation, but…

you could be gaining muscle and losing fat at the same time.

Is that your case? 

I don’t know.

But that’s why we don’t solely rely on the scale as that just tells you part of the whole picture… you could be weighting 170 lbs and have added 3-4 lbs of muscle while losing some fat.

The scale might not move, but you’re doing body recomposition.

Plus, gaining muscle and losing fat is possible under 3 specific situations (which I talked about in another post).

The point is..

Don’t rely on the scale to determine what to do, as it tells you half the truth… and if you know you’re not really losing any weight, then it’s because you’re not on a deficit.

This is what a “diet” really means

Many people go out there saying they are on a diet without paying attention to the real definition. To begin with, let’s explore the roots of the word diet. It comes from the greek diata, which means “a way of living” So this means that when you say “you’re on a diet”, in reality, you

Not all weight loss is created equal

Do you know why I’d rather lose 3-5 pounds of fat per month than 10+ of weight? Simply because it lets me know that the majority of the weight I lose will come from fat and not other tissues like muscle. There’s this idea that all weight loss is created equal. And they simply don’t
