Hi everyone!! Today I weighed myself and realised that I'm weighing 64 kg now ..2 more kg than before starting my journey with every-day-workouts(especially running) and clean eating ..is it possible that are 2kg of muscle?? Because I feel very good and slimmed down a little bit (or maybe I'm just not bloated anymore)! But I need to drop 10 kg! Is it possible to gain muscle before losing fat???
Any advice???? Thanks !!!
No you CAN NOT turn fat into muscle! I suggest you do a little research if you think you can. Not meaning to come across arrogant but having trained and studied my whole life I think I'll know something like that.
Just with my personal experience I dropped 8lbs of fat in just a month and gained 6 of muscle. But my lifting always came first then cleanish eating and light cardio so yes muscle gain comes before fat loss.the way this is explained is your body has a calorie amount it burns every day if you eat less than your caloric requirement your body cracks open the fat vault to keep things running smoothly (this is only by about 200 calories if you eat less that your body's calorie requirements by 300 or more calories it will break down your muscle.) When you gain muscle mass you have to take care if it your body has to feed maintain and heal that muscle it takes calories! Even though I'm burning fat I'm eating a little more than I'm used to because of how much muscle I've put on.
Muscle training might make you gain weight but you will lose inches. Inches are more important than your weight I gained three kilos since I started lifting weights. Obviously it's not two kilos of fat since you probably didn't change much of your diet and most probably are on a calorific deficit.be careful if you drinking enough water though sometimes your body retains salt and therefore the weight you put mightve been water weight. Don't lose motivation darling remember that the scale doesn't module your body fat there's muscle and bone what is important is that you lose body fat and of that requires two extra kilos of muscle all the better!
