Keep hearing about a calorie deficit. Basically I'm 6 foot and weight 178 pounds. Would love to get to 170 pounds but no less, whilst tonight up and gaining some muscle.

To do this I aim for about 1900 calories a day. Eating chicken, veg, brown pasta, tuna and eggs. About right? More? Less? Phone Post 3.0

depends on how quickly you want to drop.. youll also need to wokout your required caloric intake first. From there a deficit of 500cal should see you lose a pound a week, 1000cal deficit 2pounds a week... With your current weight though Id say it would be a bit less than that per week on those deficits. As long as youre eating clean and working on a deficit you will lose weight Phone Post

Also you wont gain much muscle mass on a deficit, tone for sure you will gain tone because your bfp will lower but as for lean muscle mass gains to see a reputable growth you will need to be in caloric surplus Phone Post

You have conflicting goals my friend. I personally would focus on building muscle first and then burning off some of the fat. If you are determined to try to do both at the same time, lift heavy, train hard and try to have your calorie intake match your calorie expenditure.

Most often when you try to do both, you end up doing niether.

Think this post sums it up for me. Trying to do two things at once that don't work together. Now realise I'm dieting and lifting heavy, for no reason whatsoever.

Also think I'm over thinking it. Time to eat a bit more, keep it clean and train hard. Phone Post 3.0
