You guys ever had trouble getting abs at a low calorie deficit? During my last cut, I got hard ripped abs at 2000 calories.
This cut Im doing 1500 cal/day. Still fat/no abs after 3 months. Sucks... I would normally be ripped right now using my old diets...
People think that drastically restricting calories is the answer to the perfect physique. What your training like? Diet is only half the battle. When you starve yourself your body will actually hold onto fat for self preservation.
It is not so much as how little you eat, as it is what you eat.. yes being in a deficit will cause weight loss. You will also sacrifice muscle. Eating in a deficit of the correct foods and healthy food is the answer. Tracking and weighing portion is a huge benefit.
Diet plus the correct exercise plan will get you better results.
