I have lurked this site for a bit and this question basically showed me that for people who are obese it is possible to be losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time.
I have experienced this myself; a couple of years ago, when I was obese, I decided to lose weight. I also frequented the gym and I found that I was losing weight and gaining muscle (mainly biceps). As I lost more weight I even started seeing a six pack and after about 7 months I achieved my goal; I lost weight and I had a body I found aesthetically pleasing. Unfortunately for me though, a couple of weeks after achieving my goal I got into an accident which sidelined me for months and kept me from training intensively for a year or so. The weight piled on (which was my fault, I picked up on an unhealthy diet) and now I'm back to square one. I started going to the gym again recently and I wanted to start again, and I was wondering what the best diet would be for losing fat and gaining muscle quickly?
- I gain muscle very quickly and I lose fat very quickly too, however, I also gain fat quickly.
I used to just go for a calorie deficit everyday, but I'm wondering what kind of diet would be optimal for this (in terms of meat, vegetables, fish, etc.)
