I've just started using HST and it's been working great. I'm fairly new to bodybuilding and had some questions about setting up an initial diet though. I read the article on this website called 'Eating for Size' and it said: You will experience much more success by focusing your efforts either on gaining muscle, or losing body fat, rather than both at the same time. Trust me on this. My question is, for someone like me who is just starting out, which of these two goals should I focus on first? I'm 5'7, 230 pounds and about 25% bodyfat. Its seems to me that the diet and training required for gaining muscle is the exact opposite than what you'd do to lose fat. I'd like to get down to single digit bodyfat, but not at the cost of size. Any help you guys can give me would be appreciated.
