Want to Know How to Gain Muscle and Lose Fat?

Want to know how to gain muscle and lose fat? Well I have the answer you are looking for. And here it is:

Most of you can’t gain muscle and lose fat at the same time.

It’s virtually impossible to gain muscle AND lose fat. You have to be a genetic freak. And odds are, if you’re a genetic freak, you aren’t Googling the phrase, how do I gain muscle and lose fat at the same time.

Some beginners who are rocketing through the beginner gains stage of training, and who are eating properly, may be able to add muscle and drop a few pounds of fat. But for most, trying to limit calories and maximize muscle is a fruitless game.

Right now you don’t believe me, and are about one second away from going back to Google to find another site that will tell you something different. Don’t. Please listen.

Gaining muscle requires eating more. Losing fat requires eating less. You can’t do both of these at the same time. It’s impossible.

I work in the bodybuilding industry. I talk to bodybuilders each and every day. Over and over again I ask them the same question: you have a 180 pound trainee who wants to gain muscle AND lose fat at the same time. What do you tell him?

Over and over again, the answer they provide is: most of you can’t!

You need to pick a goal. If you want a six pack, start cutting fat. But realize that after your cut is done, you will merely be a skinny twerp with a six pack. And truth be told, you won’t look that impressive.

I recommend spending a couple years gaining muscle. Beginners can gain an incredible amount of muscle during the first two years of hardcore resistance training. But you must be willing to eat big, and always train for more weight on the bar.

Lift big and eat big!

Then, after you have packed on 20 pounds of muscle, and some fat (yes, I did just say that), it’s time to cut. The good news is that after these two years of hard work, you will have the muscle permanently. And you will look beastly.

So to gain muscle and lose fat, here are your two simple steps:

  1. Spend a year or two eating big and training big.
  2. Spend 16 weeks cutting.
