ok so i know this has been beatin to death but i think my situation is a little different. i started working out about a year ago maybe a little less and was 250 pounds with a lot of extra fat. i was sort of off and on. but i made a lot of strength gains this past 3 months and look a lot better but now I’m on a cut down. i weighed myself like 3 weeks ago and i was 265 and now I’m 245.
my question is is it possible at all to gain muscle while cutting? before my diet was SHIT with shit like pineapple upside down cake twice a week and solo much white bread. now i eat healthy and take fish oil and creatine and lots of protein my deadlift actually went up 20 pounds since the cut (maybe cause of extra belly room idk) so since I’m still considered a beginner can i still make small gains while cutting since my diet and stuff is 1000 times better than when i was “bulking” (shoulda never done that) i just need some inspiration.
I’m deff starting to look better i always had broad shoulders and a nice thick body but I’m just wondering if i can make any gains while cutting if i really put my mind to my lifts (strong lifts) btw the deficit I’m at is like over 500 calories. I’m eating 2400 calories and i consider myself sedentary even though I’m prob lightly active
