Calorie Deficit, Calorie Surplus

I’ve spent most of the last 18 months training in a calorie deficit (eating less than required for maintenance) as I worked on losing weight.

I’m happy to be able to say that that mission has been successfully accomplished and now I’ve moved on to trying to pack on some lean weight: muscle.

As well as changing how I’m training and building in some more rest I’ve moved into a calorie surplus (eating more than is required for maintenance) and whats amazed me about this is how much more energy and power I have when training and how quickly my strength is improving. Its, literally, a whole different world to training while on a weight loss diet.

Though I must admit its been tough to get my head around the scales going up after 18 months of them going down.

Fun and interesting times!
