Eat like an athlete; stay a little bit hungry ; choose sensibly.

Sort of: You can lose fat while gaining muscle, but you may not lose 'weight'. This is because muscle weighs more than fat. So you can lose fat while gaining weight. Do not be worried if you are losing fat but gaining weight. Ignore the scale and instead go by how your pants fit; if they are getting looser, then things are headed in the right direction.

What are the most effective ways for me to lose weight while gaining muscle?

What are the most effective ways for me to lose weight while gaining muscle?

You stay the same..: You maintain your weight! If you put on muscle, and keep your weight constant, you have become leaner: this is a constant goal of exercise. You need to get adequate protein, and I usually recommend a blend of weight training with cardio. 4-5 x per week. 45m is optimal! If you maintain a high protein intake but calories, you will lose fat faster, but you will more slowly add muscle.

In fact, it's clear that certain people respond better to different macronutrients (like proteins, fats and carbohydrates.) It's difficult to say what type of diet you'll respond best too. It's hard to go wrong with a diet rich in colorful veggies and fruits with some lean meats.
