A lot of people enter a calorie deficit in January - whether by accident or by design, from cutting out junk food to getting an expert to work out their macros.
Generally it is a conscious effort to eat better, to look better, and to feel better!
This generally leads to feeling a lot better about yourself, being positive around others, having more energy and sleeping better. When it comes to training, you may encounter a few problems though.
Although you may feel fitter, leaner and possibly more energetic in the gym, the reduction in calories often leads to a perceived fear of losing strength. Not to worry though - ensure your protein intake is on point and this won’t be an issue!
How though? Simple enough. A good starting point is aiming to consume between 1.4g-2g of protein per kg of bodyweight. That should keep you on track and help you smash your PRs further down the line!
