Can you build muscle and lose fat at the same time

Can you build muscle and lose fat at the same time ? This is probably one of the biggest myths ever created by the online bodybuilding gurus.

I am going to be straight with you. No, you cannot build muscle and lose fat at the same time, our bodies just don’t work like that. There is no huge science behind all of this, it’s purely understandable.

To build muscle you will need to bulk up. In that phase of bulking up, you will have to consume a larger amount of calories.
To lose fat you will have to do exact opposite. You will have to eat fewer calories to lose fat.

If you think that you are more than a human and you can such a thing, then you can build muscle and lose fat at the same time.

Although there are some people who can actually do such a remarkable thing. Those people are the ones that either are lucky enough to be born as a mesomorph ( people who can eat everything, do what ever they want, and still get a good-looking body ). And there are people who give thousands of dollars each month for anabolic steroids.
