I just got back from a week at the beach. After turning 21 last weekend and drinking for the first time in about 1 month and a half, I spent a week with the family at the beach. I ate clean most of the time, having only a few meals that I would consider “cheating”, however, I couldn’t get over how a week out of the gym and with lackluster food seemed to make my body feel.
This summer I have gotten body fat down to single digits, I’m pretty sure, with abs appearing very defined, however, I can’t get over how this tightness seems to go away with a vacation week. I guess what I’m asking is have any of you who have managed to b/f % pretty low, ever noticed how little it seems to take to feel like you’ve added several % points after a few cheat meals or a night of drinking?
I’m not obsessing here, just wanted to know if I’m the only one that feels that in the better shape you get the easier it is to notice slight changes in body composition.
