I have read alot lately about the difficulties of losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time.
Well...I happen to be experiencing that right now. Before i got into lifting weights..I ate shitty food...I didnt do really much for exercise and my bodyfat was easily 17-18%. I started getting really serious about lifting weights around 4-5 months ago.
At first i thought i should just eat alot and lift and after a few years then just cut up with like 30lbs of new muscle. I realized something though..thats not even required. I decided to just eat really clean...6 meals a day...alot of protein...carbs before 1pm.
While doin this..I lifted weights 6 days a week. I have gained around 1lbs over the course of this and my body fat as actually gone down to 15%..no im not joking..and no im not using anything.
I realized that if you eat shitty and you just clean up your diet and start weighttraining...atleast while you are a teenager, you can easily gain some muscle and lose bodyfat at the same time.
