?? a good question: Hi, obviously i would choose that you lose weight and gain muscle as the same tim but, unfortunately, most patients can't do this it would require at least an hour of sweating exercise daily and low calorie intake simultaneously.It is usually better to eat less and create a weight loss first and then concentrate on increased exercise after the weight loss to build muscle.Exercise some daily.

Exercise: Any vigorous exercise will do; weight training may be more effecive. It is not feasible to turn fat into muscle, to lose fat, you will need to reduce your caloric intake while maintaining protein intake of about one gram/kg of body weight and exercise.
