Many people wonder how they can lose fat and build their muscles at the same time. There are those that believe that they will have to diet away the fat and lose the fat before they can begin building the muscles. There is no need to waste your valuable time. You can do both of these things at the same time if you eat right and work out in the right way.

One thing that you should know when you are getting started is that muscle weighs more than fat. You may not be able to see the weight loss on the scale when you are dieting and exercising for muscle gain. You will be getting leaner and turning your fat into muscle with your efforts.

Muscle burns fat more effciently; so building muscle while you are losing fat is exactly what you need to do. You notice the word pound was not used. We get caught up in how much we weigh. It is more important to figure out how muscular and thin or big you want to be?

You will be getting smaller even though your body may still weigh the same. If you need to lose some weight as well, you will do that with this program. Fat does not turn into muscle. The muscles burn away the fat.

You might be wondering what kind of diet you should be eating to get the muscle that you need. If you are trying to lose weight, you should reduce the amount of calories that you are eating. The diet that you should be eating should consist of lean meats, chicken and fish. You should also be getting plenty of vegetables and whole grains. Don't forget to include fat in your diet. You will need fat to keep you healthy. And of course, water is one of the most important parts of your diet.

Some people who are working on their muscles will need more protein in their diet. You will need the extra protein to compensate for what is burned off while you are building your muscles. There are many different ideas on where you can get the protein, but the evidence is clear that you should increase your intake if you are engaged in bodybuilding.

If you are not bodybuilding, you do not need any extra protein in your diet. You should find out what the proper amounts of all nutrients are for your body, age and health.

Body builders do need more protein because as they are building muscle, and that muscle needs more calories from protein. Protein is broken down in our body to nitrogen and to build muscle you need to have a positive nitrogen balance. There are formulas to assist you in figuring out just how much protein you need. Do your research and listed to the other athletes advice.
