How Do You Build Muscle & Lose Fat at the Same Time?

If you want to know what it really takes to build muscle and lose fat at the same time, then you want to listen to this episode.

Build muscle and lose fat at the same time.

It sounds so simple, right? Why shouldn’t we be able to do it?

Well, some people say it’s a fool’s errand. Others say you need to follow “special” forms of dieting and training. Others still say it takes steroids.

They’re all wrong.

Building muscle and losing fat simultaneously (or “body recomposition,” as it’s often called), isn’t beyond the power of us mere natties.

It’s doable, and it doesn’t require esoteric knowledge, fancy or newfangled methodologies, or drugs.

There’s a catch, though.

You may or may not be able to do it, depending on your body composition, training experience, and more.

So, in this episode, I’m going to help you understand how body recomposition works and exactly what to do to build muscle and lose fat at the same time.
