“I want to gain muscle and lose fat Will” is a common statement I hear or get the “how do I gain muscle and lose fat?” question, and sellers of supplements and designers of magical programs and diets are all to happy to feed into those wishes as if it was easy to do with their particular program or supplement.

Basic fact #2: Gaining muscle mass requires you to be in a sustained caloric surplus.

Pick a specific goal, eat and train for it, vs attempting multiple goals that may be opposed to each other giving sub par results.
