ALright, for anybody that for some reason thinks its not possible to gain weight “muscle mass” and cut “lose fat” at the same time, this is for you.
When I started lifting, I weighted in at 148lbs, with a body fat percentage of roughly 12%. Today, 4 months later, I weigh in at 165 with a body fat percentage of just under 7%.
That my friend is a lose of 5% in body fat, and a very nice gain in solid muscle.
Now Im sure some of that weight gained is water weight, but I have clearly proven that you can do both at the same time.
Now, this is what I have done so far diet and lifiting wise.
In the morning, I eat 5 whole eggs with cheese, and a bunch (2-3 serving sizes) of cereal or oatmeal. Those five eggs I eat have a lot of fat in them, however, that is about the only fat I get the rest of the day. Other than some peanut butter before bed.
The rest of my diet consists of high protein and high carbs.
Lifting - I was lifting 5 days and doing a lot of lifting to induce hypertrophy.
SO just try eating right, and lifting a lot man. You can and WILL do it.[/quote]
Yeah it is somewhat possible for a beginner. You’ve been training four months thats really not that much. Everyone goes through this when they first start its called “newbie gains”.When you’ve been lifting for several years and are no longer a newbie, once your body has gotten used to the “bodybuilding” (and I use that term loosely here) lifestyle, to try to lose fat and gain a SIGNIFCANT amount of muscle mass would be spinning your wheels.
