How to lose fat and gain muscle

If learning how to lose fat and gain muscle was easy, everyone would be doing it. Unfortunately, this is not a simple concept, with the methods used to achieve either goal often working at odds with each other.

In the simplest terms; muscle gain generally requires a calorie surplus where you consume more calories than you burn each day, leaving your body with excess resources (protein, in particular) for building new muscle. Whereas fat loss requires a calorie deficit where you burn more calories in a day than you consume.
