Lots of people train with full-body routines. They train legs and shoulders and back and biceps and triceps and all the rest on the same day. It works for many people.

It's pretty hard to make a lot of strength gains in a calorie deficit, but I know some actual Olympic-qualifying Olympic lifters who manage to keep their body fat pretty lean (weight class concerns) as they progress.

One particular idea is the amish diet which is very high in carbs and ends up being nearly 6,000 calories a day and they have a 3% obesity rate because of all of the labor. My general recommendation would be to stop your cardio if you are feeling ...
