I’m planning on running the 5/2 diet to lose some fat.
The diet calls for Mag-10 servings to avoid muscle loss, a big fear of many jacked guys. However, I am 165 pounds and 6 feet tall. I’m not totally without muscle, but should I be worried about losing it when there isn’t much there, or would this only be a concern if I were walking around with a bunch of extra muscle? Would the Mag-10 do anything for me?
I imagine from a physiological standpoint, if I were a lean 200, that’s a lot of muscle and my body might not want to hold onto it. Is muscle loss easier/more common the more of it you have?
