Should I even bother Lifting during a caloric deficit?

What's the point if I won't be making any gains

Seems like a waste of time of you ask me

    the only thing wasting if you don't lift in a calorie deficit will be your muscles

      You lift so your body doesn’t use your muscle as fuel. Your body sees you actively using your muscles so it goes “oh fug let’s just take the adipose tissue instead”

      Why would your body start burning useful muscle when it can burn useless fucking fat?

      If true it seems like a terrible design

        because your muscle needs fat to burn fat properly so if you burn mucle on your fat your fat won't burn muscle

          unless you've been fasting for like 2 weeks and are severly underweight, your body will have more than enough fat to use as fuel to make muscles.

        because if you're not using muscles they are fucking useful are they you little retard? Muscles are more expensive than fat

        Because muscle requires 20 more times the energy for maintenance compared to fat, per kg. If you're not using it, it's just wasted energy. Our bodies evolved at a time of food scarcity.

          muscle requiring more energy doesn't mean it cannibalizes itself in the presence of extra energy(adipose tissue), retarded chud

            You should try it and report back the results.

                Stop working out, see if you start losing muscle.

                What the fuck else do you think is being retained by CRRT but not with calorie restriction alone?

                Read the study you dumb shit they excluded results from studies which didn't analyse body composition.

                nah you are a retarded monkey that doesn't even know what lean body mass means, newsflash fagenstein, water is lean mass, glycogen is lean mass

                Water and glycogen are the major constituents of your muscle tissue by weight you giant retard.

                Lean body mass also includes muscle tissue though and there is nothing (zero evidence) in the linked study to suggest that resistance training was simply causing the study group to retain more water or glycogen.

                because it's a cope study, they very rarely make the distinction

                You're the one coping and spewing out bullshit because you've not even read the study but it disagrees with some preconceived notion you have.
                >In addition to the main results, an analysis of whole-body muscle quality was performed. The percent delta of muscle quality (strength/LBM ratio) following CRRT and CR was calculated, excluding only one study that did not report strength values [7], by the following equation: percent delta of muscle quality = (average strength/average LBM pre-intervention) − (average strength/average LBM post-intervention) × (100)/(average strength/average LBM pre-intervention). The ratio was calculated from whole-body LBM and muscle group strength presented by each original study, which count six lower limb measurements and two upper limb measurements. The Mann Whitney test was used to compare the mean differences between groups.
                This analysis has picked only high quality studies which went to great lengths to analyse muscle composition between groups as much as is possible.
                Why don't you try reading it before dismissing its findings?

        because it's made up by retards, under no circumstances do you lose muscle first, that's what adipose tissue is literally for

        Because you're not using it.
        If you actually use your muscles during a caloric deficit, then the losses will be minimal.

        Because calorietards can't tell the difference between carbs, fat, and protein.

        If you don't eat carbs you don't lose muscle. Muscle loss is caused by carbs blocking fat burning

        The muscle is only seen as useful if you're using it.

        Because the body considers fat more important, you stupid gay.

        If you're not eating, your body thinks you're starving and will desperately try to hold on to as much of its reserves as possible. And if you're not lifting, your body will think your muscles aren't needed and it will use them instead.
