If that is the goal then go for it. Keep a diet log, and have some of more experienced people on the board give you some guidance. It is a very realistic goal to gain muscle while losing fat. Best of luck in your goals!!

Building muscle and losing fat simultaneously will mean the scales may not accurately reflect what is occurring so it would be best to use a tape measure as well.

Contrary to common thought, you can lose fat and build muscle at the same time. Tain't easy, but it can be done. The key is more in the kitchen than in the gym.

Ah yes, the never-ending question; Can you lose weight and gain muscle at the same time?
I'm sure it's entirely possible if you are really fat, a real newbie, or have some super secret supplements in your bag. But for the rest of us it's a painfully slow process that has little room for error. Do you have that patience and are you that precise with your macros and nutritional timing? If not, do yourself a favor and pick one goal at a time. Remember it's faster to lose fat than it is to gain muscle, so I will recommend getting in shape first.
