    Question Is calorie shifting the same as a normal deficit?

    So let's say I try to keep my calories at 1700 per day and I eat 2400 one day and 1000 the next to average 1700, Is that the same as eating 1700 on both those days?
    I think it's called calorie shifting and I'm looking for a tldr from people who read clinical studies on this cause I'm too lazy.

    For fat loss, basically yes. But this assumes protein and fat targets are met/the same on each day.

    For muscle gain, no.

    The body does a good job of smoothing out wrinkles in your intake. This is because stores of things like fats and glycogen are quite large and only likely to be impacted by larger or longer duration swings.

    Protein, as mentioned has a smaller pool to draw from (amino acids circulating in the bloodstream) so it is a little more sensitive to timing.

    Bear in mind that if you don't eat at regular times or you eat irregular amounts, it can cause a stress reaction in your body. Over sustained periods of time, elevated stress is always bad news...
