    Gaining lean muscle mass while lossinf fat

    Shadow,
    You can do both however I would never recommend bulking up first by gaining a significant amount of body fat just to loss it once you have obtained it. Try a good whey protein,(Isopure is a good one) eat 5 to 6 small meals a day, keep your protien intake up high and your fat gram intake low. It takes alot of energy for your body to burn off bodyfat and it will draw on leanmuscle mass if you do not have enough calories in your body . Check out my post called Reciepes #2 in this section. It will give you some different meals to prepare that may make dieting a little less boring. I will be up-dating the recepes every week so keep a look out in that section for differnt receipes. Do you do any kind of cardio? Well your going to have to if you have any significant amount of body fat to lose. You need to do a minimal of 30 minutes at least 3 times a week. As long as you are eating enough you can up the cardio if you are able without lossing alot of lean muscle mass at the same time. You may enlist the aid of fat burners if you choose, but if you have every had any problems with high bllod pressure, heart diease, or a seziure disorder I would stay away from them if I were you. Good luck and keep us posted on your progres.

    Chicken or fish

    Dam man I forgot about that on the last post, Chicken is a good source of protein with very little fat. In fact that holds true for all white meat(Fish,poultry) excluding pork which is just the opposite.(Low protein content as far as meats go and very high in fat)

    Any kind of red meat such as steak will have higher amounts of protein however they will also have higher amounts of fat as well. Which you choose really depends on how easily you may or may not gain body fat. I doublt really seriously that an accasional steak will make all that big a difference but you really have to make the call. Good luck

    Good ole Egg Whites are my fav, quick to fix and easy to eat. Protein shakes, I have learned to prepare chicken 100 different ways. Tuna too! One more thing, that I think is important, if you are gonna eat red meat, watch how you cook it. Rare is better for you, but again with all the d*mn bacteria Billy was referring to on one of the boards about chicken, can still be found in some beef and red meats. Stick with the chicken, but cook it well. Yogurt I like as well, for inbetween meals, but get the kind that is light, low in fat and low in carbs. good luck, keep that protein up and eat right, you will see your body responding to your workouts, they will pay off.

    Big bump for all of the previous replies. Good advice guys.

    Just wanted to add the one thing that really got to me when I was new to this stuff and wanted to "loose fat and get big at the same time"...

    Pick a goal and go with it. Either bulk or cut. You cant EFFICIENTLY do both at the same time. (notice I said efficiently - some people are blessed with the gentetics and metabolism to do it but...)

    Remember that you are talking about 2 polar opposites here; anabolism (bulking) vs. catabolism (cutting). Figure out which one is most important to you right now and just do it.

    The most important thing in adding muscle while trying to stay lean is simply eating more than you are burning, but EAT CLEAN!
    Some of the calories will spill over into fat, but if you are religeous about it most of the gain will be muscle.

    That helped me out big time when I was first starting out.

    Focus, decide, stay stict, lift big, get big, be happy,

    changing ones body composition isn't just about taking bcaa's and taurine and stuffs..it just doesn't work that way..too many variables to consider
