Please dont flame me... im just asking a question... not claiming that its possible.
I hear constantly that its not possible to do both, unless you are new to weightlifting, but I was hoping someone could explain the "why" to me.
In a caloric deficit you lose weight. In a caloric excess you gain weight- I got it. But I still have trouble with the "calories in/out at the end of the day" determining this.
I mentioned in another post, shouldnt it be "calories in/out at the end of a given period of time" whether it be 1 day, 2 days, 1 week, 6 months. If over 6 months time, you were in a caloric deficit overall, you will have lost weight, even if you werent in a caloric deficit every day, correct?
Now what does it matter? Im just wondering why it couldnt be broken down even further- into hours. If I am in a caloric excess for the 12-24 hours surrounding my weight training, and in a caloric deficit the rest of the time, why cant I be building muscle and losing weight at the same time?
----again---- please dont be mean and hateful and flame me when the answer is very obvious, because I just dont see it
