Is it possible to keep gaining muscle and drop fat at the same time? Or should I not worry about protein intake and just focus on calories?
ok...if you are serious about cutting body fat then focus on calories (in & burned). Cut your sugar intake...only natural sugar (fruits). I eat yogurt and fruit for lunch. I have lost 17 lbs in 2 1/2 weeks by eliminating sugar, lowering carbs, and no steaks. 225 to 208 lbs. I have gained muscle in the process, but then again I work out 4 days on and 1 day off with cardio each day. I have also learned how to work out from some of the best. I will never get to 6% body fat I had in college b/c I do not play FB or study martial arts anymore. The goal for me is to be healthy again versus being a fat-ass former FB player.
