As far as I understand, the lower the caloric deficit at cutting the more muscle you will lose. And god forbid you did any cardio. Yet, there are a lot of people on forums who cut lots of weight in short time and reported no loss. I went through a lot of crazy diets, never noticed any muscle loss at all, on the opposite anytime I start lifting weights, I always get bigger no matter what I am eating. So is this an issue at all for non-bodybuilders, or people just overcomplicated things?
