so i decided to take this week off to ease my mind and have a little break. i only reduced calories by around 200-300 since im wayyyy less active. and already lost 1.5 pound. will i be weaker next week because of this? should i eat more? should i reduce weight used?
If you are weaker from 1 week off of training, seek immediate medical attention as you may have some sort of muscle wasting disease.
You may want to preemptively dial the numbers “9” and “1” into your phone…
hell a 1-2 lbs variation in ones weight is not a big deal. Any you might have lost could simply be water weight.
It mostly depends on someone’s activity level. I personally like to cut at a high deficit because I’m not a fan of cutting forever. 1.5 pound a week, IMO is too slow for my preference.
