I wanted to check if this was relatively normal?
I’ve been in SSBMV1 whilst trying to drop a bit of weight.
All gone pretty well with 4.6kgs off in 5 weeks. 77kgs down to 72.4kgs
During the rest week, I’ve maintained the caloric deficit of 500 calories per day, but have put 0.75kg back on.
I’m not bothered by this, as have some concern about losing weight during a rest week anyway and hadn’t expected to lose quite as much this quickly, but I am curious to know what’s causing it?
I’ve been fuelling the rides, so this week I’ve eaten less calories than the previous 5 weeks, but put weight on, just a little, each day.
I was expecting to lose a bit and was thinking if I did, I might eat a bit more to keep my weight level during the recovery week, or at least slow down the rate I was losing it at, but the exact opposite has happened and I’ve put a bit back on.
Just curious if anybody has had a similar experience or suggestions to why this could happen?
The only thing I can think of is I might be burning more calories during my training than is being calculated by TR
