Assume two active weightlifters (3-4 times a week) want to drop some fat.
Let’s say 2500 calories is maintenance for both. Lifter 1 consumes 2000 calories every day, lifter 2 consumes 2500 calories everyday but through cardiovascular activity burns 500 kcals. Which routine is more effective for fat loss with muscle conservation.
Just curious because I’ve heard so many different things over the years from a myriad of different authors. Anecdotal evidence is ok.
