Can you shred fat and build muscle at the same time?
Topic: Can you shred fat and build muscle at the same time?
January 28, 2020 / By Deemer Question:
Ok I want to shred fat and build muscle at the same time. My problem is that I don't know if you can build alot of muscle while doing alot of cardio also. I'm not worried about my weight I just want to look good. So my question is, If I do cardio 4 to 5 times a week and hit the weights hard with alot of protein shakes and low fat diet, can I build that huge muscle I want and shred fat at the same time or will the cardio limit my potential muscle mass while shredding fat??

Yeah the best way to do both at the same time is to take a muscle enhancing product. If you are going to take a muscle enhancing product, to build muscle you have to hit the weights.

Some say that it's possible..others disagree
You can burn some fat when building muscle..but not much. If your goal is to lose body fat..you need to be on a calorie restricted diet. If your goal is to build muscle..you need to be on a high calorie diet.
If your goal is to do them simultaneously..you can see that it's a bit tricky.
From what most people say...you really want to lose the body fat until you can kinda see the top for abdominal muscles. When you choose to bulk..the nutrients will be absorbed better.
Only if you are coming back from a long layoff and/or are on drugs. The human body really doesn't like to gain muscle mass at the same time it loses fat. Best bet is to go on cutting and bulking cycles of 2-3 months at a time, with a week or so pause in between.

Yes, but it will be slow loosing fat and slow gaining muscles. Usually slower then a dedicated bulk then cut. Unless you want to talk steroids, then ya, huge fat losses and huge muscle gains are the norm. Fat noobs on steroids just end up hurting themselves, i would never do them unless i was at least 25 and knew exactly what i was doing.

Food plays such an essential part in our lives, and yet it’s one of our worst enemies as effectively. It takes nearly practically nothing for a healthful diet plan to turn into one that packs on the pounds or causes well being problems! Alter this with Metabolic Cooking and make the food a buddy and not an enemy.

Adapt a low fat, high protein diet. Eat lots of chicken, kidney beans, green vegetables and take your protein shake with water instead of milk. During your 'off' days do some cardio. EDIT: I'm assuming you are doing weights in my answer... otherwise this is a really, really stupid question.

Hi Mike. Man I understand you perfectly. I've tried many things over the years to address the exact same situation. I finally succeeded.
The way in which you phrased this question shows me you're experienced in exercise, diet and training, so I'm going to be brief here.
What it boils down two is two things:
1) Experiment, and
By "Experiment" I mean you need to test out different combinations of training and eating strategies. WHY?? Because everybody reacts differently to training and diet based on age, genetics, body type, lifestyle, etc. Sorry man but you must trust me on this - you need to try things and see how it affects YOU. For example, I learned that running for 45 minutes+ actually did nothing for my fat % as I got older, and simply walking at a good pace for the same time was what got the fat off. And walking in the morning after drinking a protein shake was more effective than walking on an empty stomach.
Regarding supplements there are some that can help but you need to be careful - both of artificial ingredients and marketing hype - but you know that already. Stay away from Hydroxycut please. What has worked for me is something new called 'Acai Fire for Men' - which is acai berry obviously BUT formulated for men. I don't know how they did it but that stuff worked. I read about it on the web at http://hubpages.com/hub/acaifire4men-freetrial My experience was much like the guy who wrote that article.
Bottom line there is no quick fix solution but the solution nevertheless is there - you just have to find it yourself.
