Diet and training can be adjoined together for a dual purpose when one and the other are mutually important--for a specific purpose. Many forget the absolute power of macro-manipulation. For example: Manipulate carbohydrates at a certain personal level, with the purpose of lowering and/or depleting glucose storage (in liver/muscle, etc). Along with a higher rep routine, where the purpose of the higher rep count is to solicit more usage calories from carbohydrates during the course of the routine. Separating diet from routine, is not always true; its personal variable dependent.

With that said, there is nothing wrong with lifting heavy with basic rep scheme, adjusting calories to lose tissue (and keeping macros relatively normal under the deficit foundation) to see how your body responds. As time moves on, you may or may not have to make refinements dependent on bodily response. But give it adequate time.
