to my knowledge that is. okay... if a "caloric deficit" is the main thing in a cutting diet (loose fat/wieght) technically one can eat "bad food"... say 1 burger from jack in the box and 3 pieces of fried chicken a day and still cut? so as long as one stays under maintainence level that is. sounds logical just not healthy... sounds like one can still cutt but it wouldnt be healthy... is this true? not saying im going to do it but im just curious... trying to understand the mechanics. sub question... what if its hard for one to get the proper caloric intake they need by eating clean foods? ive tried real hard to just eat clean foods and get the proper caloric deficit but it just doesnt work out because i cant seem to do it... i guess because im too new to clean foods. im very picky about the foods i eat so its hard. i need about 2900 to maintain and currently im getting around 1300 a day if im lucky on clean foods. would it be better to continue like this or add some fuckin carbs like wheat bread and unhydrogenated penute butter or maybe some pizza.... because i can do that easy.
