Ya that is true.Despite all the claims of the recomp fanatics, I'm pretty sure gaining muscle and losing fat are two contrary goals. At least that's what almost any nutrition text will tell you. Either you're eating at a deficit and losing weight (hopefully fat) or you're eating a surplus and gaining weight (hopefully muscle). In fact, Dorian Yates was saying this just the other day on the telly -- that you can't really burn fat without losing some muscle and, conversely, you're not going to gain muscle without also bringing in some fat.
So what is this 'recomp' you ladies are talking aboot? @The Solution, hook a bro up, I'll give you a suuuper scientific review.
When I mentioned recomp I meant more of the fact that I seem to be more "efficient". I was increasing calories and not gaining weight despite this and even seemed to lose a little weight. So over a longer or broader time frame I seemed to have dropped some fat and maybe added more muscle, but mostly seemed to efficiently lose fat despite not having to drop calories.
If that makes sense.
