I'm aware that cutting requires a calorie deficit, while bulking requires a surplus of calories.
In any given day, why can't you be on a calorie deficit yet load up on carbs after lifting for hypertrophy? Wouldn't this mean simultaneous fat loss and muscle growth?
I'm assuming there is some sort of timeframe for having a caloric excess/deficit before one looses fat or gains muscle. If so what is it generally?
Sorry if this topic has been done to death. My search returned nothing.
