rapid weight loss~eat more, or less?
im sort of witnessing a pretty big weight loss thing here. In a matter of a week, i have lost like three pounds. This was my goal, but at the same time im not sure it was all fat. i weigh 227 now, and my goal was 225, because this was the point where my abs could be seen.(according to my calculations in bf%) Dont get my wrong, i can definetly see my abs, but it is not the cut six pack like in the mags. How much further do yall think i should go? Is it safe to proceed like this, or do yall think i will burn up the hard-earned muscle? With the activity that i am doing, to sustain myself(no loss or gain) i need like 4000 cals. I have been eating 3000 cals, with cardio and lifting both three days a week. So the deficit is roughly 1500 calories each day. This is counting the activity, and basal metabolic rate increase due to the activity.
Im afraid that i might be cutting into muscle, but i have no proof to back this up. I am strong as ever at the gym.
