Subject: Caloric restriction AND muscles ?!?
: Is it at all possible? Do people on CR necessarily have to get SOOO
: With CR, I understand, the body becomes more efficient in the way
: it uses the calories it receives. If this is correct, then the following
: might make sense to you.
: If I was to lower my present daily caloric intake (estimated at
: to CR-level (i.e.~1,800) I would, of course, lose weight. Given that my
: body-fat levels are low, that would also mean losing muscle mass (not
: a plus, as far as I'm concerned!)
: At some point, however, the above-mentioned better efficiency should
: kick-in, right? Doesn't that improved efficiency mean that I could then be
: able to maintain a pre-CR bodyweight (or similar) while staying on 1,800
: .or am I just trying to have it both ways?
