The Intelligent & Relentless Pursuit of Muscle™

Today's tip comes from Michael Roussell:

Total Calories Count!

The type of calories (protein, carbs, and fats) you eat does matter, but don't overlook the importance of total calories. Not reaching your goals? Look at your total calories. Regardless of macronutrient breakdown, if you're trying to lose fat then you need to be in a caloric deficient. If your fat loss has stalled and your calories are already low, maybe you need to consider temporally bumping up your calories (250-300 calories) to give your metabolism a jumpstart, instead of re-arranging your macronutrients.
