Anyway to lose excess fat and gain muscle...
I started working out a good 3 months ago. I've been taking creatine and protein supplements, as well I have a multivitamin I take. Anyways I was fairly cut before I started working out. I've put on I'd say all together now a good 20 pounds, 10 pounds being muscle, other 10 being fat. Now I don't know maybe I'm mistaken but the 10 pounds seems like a big difference looks wise to me. I'm glad with the muscle gain, although I'm definitely not as cut, I can definitely see a size gain, so can everyone else who knows me so I know I'm gaining muscle. When I started I was told to eat hella protein... like 1 gram per pound of body weight, so my diet changed a lot, I eat probably 3x as much as before just to get the protein... maybe I just can't eat a lot but I find myself eating when I'm full just to get the last of the protein in. I'm guessing this is where the extra fat came from. Now I'm wondering did I waste my time or is there anyway to keep the gains I got and continue to workout and gain muscle but as the same time shred the extra pounds of fat I have before about mid-june when I'll start hitting the beach again. Thanks a ton, I'm about 6'1"-6'2" and about 190 pounds now. Any help would be great, thanks a ton.

Sounds like your trying to bulk up? I also share your dillema. anyway to minimize your fat gains you can do cardio first thing in the am on an empty stomach on the days you dont work out. Other than that its pretty much a given that you will gain a little fat while trying to gain quality muscle. Your on the right track though, when you are already satisfied with your gains, you can shed all the fat and try to cut up. good luck.
