I'm in a cutting phase but I've been sick for the past four days. As a result, I didn't go to the gym (which I was already off and on since Christmas, but prior to that, going dedicately).
So, I hadn't been doing the heavy lifting. However, my cutting diet remained the same.
Although being sick ruined my appetite, sleeping habits and gym time, I told myself I wasn't losing muscle mass because:
1) I kept my protein intake up and sufficient
2) I more or less spent those days lying around, barely using any physical effort except for hacking coughing.
However, maybe I am over-analyzing, but body looks a tiny bit smaller.
Thoughts or insights please.
and Happy New Year
