Cover Story (view full-size image): A common concern for individuals seeking to optimize their physiques is the loss of muscle mass that typically occurs when dieting. This study investigated a unique strategy for resistance-trained individuals to maintain their fat-free mass while undergoing a caloric deficit for the purpose of reducing body fat. Based on our findings, it appears that ingesting a relatively high-protein diet, engaging in resistance exercise, and periodically increasing caloric intake back to maintenance calories will prevent loss of fat-free mass. Specifically, reducing caloric intake for five days and then increasing it (in the form of carbohydrates) back to maintenance levels for two-consecutive days not only better retained fat-free mass but also prevented the suppression of diet-induced metabolic rate.
