I know this is a dumb question but I’m trying to end a debate with a friend of mine. I say to optimize your diet (losing weight fast but keeping as much muscle as possible) you need to eat roughly 18x your weight minus 20%. and obviously do some cardio (without going into the science of carbs and fats). So if you are 180 lbs its like 2600 calories.
If you eat something like 2000 calories at that weight you will lose weight faster but generally because you are losing more muscle than you think right?
All of this still holds true with AS?
Thanks in advance for the responses.
