Age 40 6'4" 245lbs (down from 283), 21% BF (Omron handheld scanner).
Unplugged in January, life is mostly good these days, It's like I've learned Kung-fu like Neo. Wife and others are responding positively to physical and attitude changes.
Physical Gainz came easily at first, I was seemingly losing fat and building muscle simultaneously just by lifting and cutting out garbage foods...for a little while (maybe 2 months or so). Noob gainz stalled & I decided to focus on eating better, losing weight. That worked for a while, though muscle gainz slowed or stalled. Weight loss has also stalled again. over the past couple of weeks. I understand that you cannot burn fat & build muscle simultaneously over the long run. Do I need to alternate between cutting weight and building muscle?
I want to be lean, not the fat guy with muscles...what is my best approach going forward - focus on cutting weight, or focus on heavy lifting & building muscle? What are the best resources available to dial in my diet and control macros? I want to make sure my diet is dialed in to optimally support me reaching my goals as efficiently as possible.
