I started some time back on what I call a recomp-cut. Basically it is a very slow cut, over the entire period of time, I will be in caloric deficit and losing fat (hence the "cut"). But interspersed in this period are calorie surplus, higher carb days around the heavy training sessions.
I sure hope that recomp is not a myth.
But yes, given its nature the changes on the scale will be very slow, and it will take a much longer time to see results.
