Started gym 2 months ago - 5 days a week (1 hour cardio, 1 hour weights).
145 pounds, 170cm, female.
I am eating a calorie deficit and realize my gains are only newbie gains..
I will forever be eating a calorie deficit as I cant see myself ever being happy with my body until I'm shredded as (eat about 1500 cals a day) so, when these newbie gains wear off, is it pointless me still lifting weights as it's impossible to gain muscle while in calorie deficit? or not pointless as it's important to maintain it?
