Fat Loss vs. Muscle Gain: What’s your goal?
Fat Loss vs. Muscle Gain: What’s your goal?⠀
While no one meal will make you lose or gain weight, the combination of all your meals for the day with snacks & drinks included, will add up to your target calories for the day.⠀
I love this meal illustration by @MealPrepOnFleek because it shows how simple tweaks can add up to big results on either end of the spectrum. Plus with the holidays around the corner, chipotle’s a great, easy grab’n’go option.⠀
I often get asked if you can gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. If you’re new to working out or new to lifting weights, then you could definitely benefit from beginner gains and thus, lose fat while gaining muscle.⠀
However, if you’ve been working out or lifting weights for a while, you have to pick one and then switch to the other method. A good method is to eat in a slight calorie deficit till you get to your goal body fat percentage and then begin to build muscle.⠀
At the end of the day though, I wouldn’t just focus on numbers but also how good you feel!
