Im the kind of person who hates to lose muscle, since I dont have as much as I would like in the first place. I am going on a college visit, and will be gone for the next 3 days, most of the time I will spend driving.

I doubt i will be able to get 4000 calories per day, that is what i usually get. I bought 100 protien bars yesterday, and I am taking tuna with me, apples, wheat bread. I will try to get atlest 250g protien, 300g carbs and 120g of fat. Alot of fat because peanuts are convienant to eat while driving.

WIll I lose alot of muscle on this diet over the next three days. I didint want to go visit these colleges for this reason, but my parents made me. The good thing is my mom will be doing most of the driving, so i will get plenty of rest. Assuming I get 30g protien every 3 hrs with the above diet, should I lose a considerable amount of muscle? I will be taking all my vitamins with me, i weigh 189 now, do you think I will drop below 185?

you shouldnt lose any muscle, i dont know why you are so worried. just do some stretching over those days and you will be fine.

lol 3 days, you wont have to eat that much, youll feel flabby when you get back, you can always do pushups or something if you feel like you absolutely have to do something

Damn, I thought I was paranoid, but the _hall is insane. And if you want to gain more muscle, I'd increase the carbs. Too many people complain they don't grow much even though they take in a lot of protein. The reason is they don't eat enough carbs. When I'm bulking, I'll easily take in 600-700 grams of carbs a day.

And no, you won't lose any muscle.
