Gaining mass at or below maintenance

Gregory 3 years ago in Diet and Nutrition updated by Marc Lobliner 3 years ago 1

Hey Marc, if a person has excess body fat, assuming protein, carbs, etc are optimal, can lean mass still be gained by eating at maintenance or even a slight caloric deficit as the body breaks down the excess fat to meet energy requirements, instead of doing a traditional bulking and cutting diet.

It can! Just train with PROGRESSIVE OVERLOAD and aim to lose 1-2lb a week. see www.dropfactorbook.com
