okay so i am relatively new.

okay so i am relatively new. Why the frick do I need caloric surplus, when those extra calories turn into fat, which I burn off during the cut? Doesnt protein gain only require high protein intake?

    If your bodyfat is low, you wont be able to build muscle without gaining weight.

    The idea is that your body doesn’t want to build muscle unless it knows it has enough food, since muscle is metabolically expensive. I personally don’t know, I’ve never cut before.

      caloric surplus

      Ive read it and it doesnt explain it. I understand the fact that I need extra calories. I dont understand why? Is it to cover the energy cost of the training or is it that muscle growth itself requires the calories.

        if you wanna build muscle optimally, you need to either eat at a caloric surplus or like

        If your bodyfat is low, you wont be able to build muscle without gaining weight.

        said have enough bf% for your body to use as energy to build muscle. this does not factor in protein because you always need protein to build/maintain muscle

        you dont really need to understand why just lift but

        muscle growth requires calories, muscle is new mass and weight being added to your body. Muscles require calories to maintain as well moreso than fat does.

        You can gain muscle on a cut if you're high bodyfat but the reason you gain a lot more while on a caloric surplus is that your body is a survival machine that prioritizes maintaining fat over building muscle, because fat holds onto more energy for a lower caloric cost so from evolution's perspective it was more beneficial to us. If you are on a caloric surplus your body will build fat as well as muscle, but if you're on a deficit your body will want to burn muscle instead of fat first which is why you have to lift to stimulate your muscles so your body knows they're needed and it can't use them for energy.

          Why would the body burn muscles first on a caloric deficit if muscles are needed for killing things to eat or to cover distances in nature looking for food?
          Why not burn the fat to keep the muscle?

            Body needs energy to build muscle.

            Muscle is rich and instant, fat is not.

            >Why would the body burn muscles first on a caloric deficit
            It doesn't. On a caloric deficit your body will catabolize both adipose and muscle tissue. The amount depends of each depends on how much fat you have, your diet, and your activity level. If you are eating enough protein and lifting heavy and regularly enough, then your body will tend to prioritize fat and maintain most of that muscle because the weight lifting is introducing a stimulus for hypertrophy.

            muscles use a lot of energy. from an evolutionary standpoint, if you were struggling to get food and your body needed something to burn, it would burn muscle for two reasons: first you generate some energy by consuming mass, second you lose some of the high energy-dependent mass on your body, so the energy you have will last you longer. prevent this either by eating at a surplus or by stimulating the muscle through weightlifting so your body thinks you need it and will therefore consume fat first.

          If your surplus consists of 100% protein, then your body will only use about 10% of that to increase body fat mass and then expel what's not used for hypertrophy.

        protein is the little building blocks muscle is built off. calories are what is used to weld it to your muscles. body uses certain amount of calories at base level to fix and upkeep bunch of stuff. so to spare some calories to heavy investment like building muscle, you need to eat at an surplus.

    No. It's simple.

    1. Increased activity means increased caloric needs
    2. Muscle growth correlates to weight gain when weightlifting given you have a high enough protein intake. To gain weight you need a caloric surplus. You cannot gain muscle mass without gaining weight. This point was obvious. You just have to learn how to use your brain instead.

    You don't have to go on a huge bulk. You just have to bulk enough to fuel muscle growth. If you want to maintain body fat percentage and gain muscle that means you're going to have to gain some fat which perfectly fine. Gaining 9 lbs of muscle and 1-2 lbs of fat over a long time period for example isn't a big deal. Something like a 200-500 calories surplus above daily caloric requirements (given your height, weight, and activity level) should be sufficient. You can try to get it all in terms of protein too. If you want to get that in terms of protein that would be about 50-75 g of protein. You can get that from eating 200-300g of chicken breast or using whey protein.

    There is an exception to the need for a surplus. That's if you're fat. If you're fat and you're eating enough protein, then you both gain muscle and lose body fat until you're body fat percentage is too low for that to keep working. Then you can decide whether or not you need to continue cutting and accept minor loses in mass to get down to your desired BF% or to bulk a little bit to gain more muscle.

    Your body, being omnivorous, will consume carbs, proteins, or fats to get its calories; it will prefer carbs, fats, and proteins, in that order. Your muscles, however, can only grow stronger with protein. If you are in a caloric deficit, then some of the protein that you eat will end up just being burned for calories. If you are in a caloric surplus, then you will guarantee that more of the protein you eat will go towards muscle growth.

    As long as you are not at a caloric deficit, you will be fine. The theory is that you can't gain weight in a caloric deficit, including muscle. Since most people don't know their exact TDEE, it is easier to simply eat at a surplus.
