Calorie deficits


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Calorie deficits within the Women's Fitness (Female Bodybuilding and Training) category.

Excerpt: I have a couple questions. One, I've been cutting with a calorie deficit diet for a while, however I have not been lifting, only running as I will be doing track. I cut down pretty low, but I'm still not that toned. Would adding lifting solve this problem? Also, if I ended my deficit and simply mantained, could lifting still tone up my body? Second question: From my understandings is, when cutting you want low carbs so your body burns fat instead of all your carbs. So, while

    Calorie deficits

    I have a couple questions.


    One, I've been cutting with a calorie deficit diet for a while, however I have not been lifting, only running as I will be doing track. I cut down pretty low, but I'm still not that toned. Would adding lifting solve this problem? Also, if I ended my deficit and simply mantained, could lifting still tone up my body?


    Second question: From my understandings is, when cutting you want low carbs so your body burns fat instead of all your carbs. So, while mantaining, since I'm not trying to burn any fat does it really matter how many carbs I take in?

    The whole 'toned' vs have you lost weight thing needs clarifying.

    Re: Calorie deficits

    when you eat 'in a deficit' you will lose weight initially then stop and actually gain your weight back. it is because you are destroying your metabolic rate

    when you fast instead, your metabolic rate DOES NOT drop. so fasting is the answer, not continuing to count calories as you are doing. you can read more about fasting in my signature Ebook, or you can PM me for a 1 on 1

    Agreed with Steve here. You want to be fasting. Not eating art deficit. Fasting seems extreme to most but its all mental and easily doable!

    Yes lifting will tone up your body if that's what you're asking.

    Lifting will help build muscle and give you a better appearance but it doesnt "tone"
