    Want to lose body fat- not weight

    Hey everyone, i'm a 17 year old male, almost 18. I weight in at 205 lbs and 5"10. I've been working out frequently and intensely for the past 3 months, doing the p90X program as well as my own routines.

    I'm happy with my weight and I do not want to drop below 200 lbs. I'm currently supplementing with Creatine Etyhl Ester (Cellmass from BSN) and NO Xplode; also from BSN. Now, since I've started the p90x, my measurements have gone down considerably and I feel that I do not want to lose any more WEIGHT. However I want to lose body fat and continue to weight lift.

    So, I know that to lose WEIGHT you need to create a calorie deficit of 500 calories/day for 7 days to lose 1lb a week. However, I also know that if you wish to gain weight as muscle you need to eat MORE calories. So my question is, if I'm looking to lose body FAT while continuing to gain muscle, do I increase my daily caloric intake and just continue to do a mixture of weights and cardio? I'm also asking this because I workout 5-6 days a week for about 1-1.5 hours a day, so I am pretty active and I know in order to sustain such activity I need to adequately fuel my body! Any info is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Your workout doesnt need to exceed an hour.

    Having said that, you have to lose weight to lose bf. Thats just common sense. Sorry, but p90x isnt exactly a mass building program.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I was asking this because I see bodybuilders who eat 3500+calories a day but still keep a really low body fat so I was wondering how is it possible for them to do that.

    So I'll just have to cut calories and perform regular cardio and weights until I lose these last few inches THEN I can up the calorie intake and hit the weights harder for bulk?
