I am 5'10" and approximately 200 lbs. Unfortunately the majority of this weight is not muscle but instead fat. I just moved and in my new house I will finally be able to dedicate a room for my weights/fitness equipment. That said, I hope to be able to start working out in the next 2 weeks. My problem is that I have ~50 lbs of fat to lose. From most of what I've read I understand that I have to have an excess of calories in order for my muscles to have the calories they need to grow. Given that, I don't understand how I can go about losing the fat that I need to while at the same time build muscle. Not only do I have a fairly comprehensive exercise/weight set but I also have an exercise bike for cardio. My concern is that if I lift weights and do a lot of cardio at the same time that I am not going to be able to build any muscle. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
