Reader Question: Can I Burn Fat And Build Muscle At The Same Time?
Hi, I am creeping up on 30 years old and I am 6ft 2in. 225lbs of mostly fat. I have been lifting and paying close attention to my diet, also mixing in my cardio. Pretty much using just the information from your web site. I want to loose the fat and gain mass.
What I need to know is should I concentrate more on the fat loss or muscle gain? Is trying to do both feasible? I have already improved tremendously in the gym. Though I still look like a ball of dough.
Thanks for the great question.
I think this question all depends on what you want to do in terms of your physique.
The only way to do this is to strip off the fat. As I said before, I don't know what your doing in terms of weight training but I suggest you keep on doing what your doing because it seems to be working for you. However, I do suggest you step up your cardio a bit.
As for your diet, cut out all junk food, especially after dinner snacks. Your goal is to lose 2 to 3 pounds per week. If you can do this, you are on the right track and will have muscle definition by the end of June.
You can certainly try and build muscle and burn fat but to be honest, you might be teeter tottering between the two so you might as well go for one and do it right.
This is important. Remember, cut out all junk food and don't eat any starchy or simple carbohydrates after 6:00 PM. I suggest you have some fibrous carbohydrates such as cucumbers, carrots, and celery.
