First post, and i am asking for advice.
I am 33 years old and what i would describe as skinny fat, meaning i have a slim build but have a gut that I am trying to get rid of. I have been working out 6 days a week for 3 weeks now using Fawnia's weight training for beginners routine (that can be found on this site but i was unable to post the link) I have also started eating much better and am down about 5 pounds. I am 5'9 and about 170.
My question is, i want to lose the gut but dont want to become a skinny rail so i also want to increase muscle. So how do i do that? should i take a protein supplement or do i need to lose weight in the gut and then begin to build muscle? Should I really be counting calories or should i try to eat alot of protein to help build the muscle?
Thanks for any help.
