    New at this, so bare with me on fat loss while buiding muscle

    I am 5'11" tall, 45 years old.....started @ 204ish 2 1/2 months ago (Nov 15ish/2012), now 191....I'm sure i am not eating properly to lose my gut while building muscle, i have been experimenting but don't really know what i am doing. I have been following "The body sculpting bible for men" as far as the workout part goes, i eat way way better than i ever have, i workout 6 days a week, i don't drink (anymore) and I'm just not seeing a whole lot of results, eating all the veggies and protein shakes and just healthier also seems to bloat me and make me gassy.....i know its a fine line to cut body fat and gain muscle mass, so i need some advise....i am very disciplined and will do what it takes....just don't know what to do......oh ya i smoke too, that's my next goal, but one thing at a time,,,,and yes i know smoking is "bad" for you, lol....any input will be appreciated....

    You aren't going to be able to build any noticeable muscle whilst losing fat. Also, you seem to have a few misconceptions about diet, you don't need to only eat veggies and protein shakes. In fact, that would be a terrible diet.

    1. Get rid of your misconceptions
    2. Calculate your calories and macros
    3. Eat about 20% less calories than you burn each day while still meeting minimum protein and fat. Get the remainder of cals from carbs.
    4. Buy a kitchen scale and weigh everything that you eat.
    5. Count calories using a site like MyFitnessPal. Here's how to count properly.
    6. Lift heavy weights to preserve muscle mass, on a program like Starting Strength. Why not your own routine? Read this.
    7. If nothing happens after 3 weeks, reexamine calculations, and eat less.

    Try not to focus on losing fat and gaining muscle too much at the same time. Lower your BF% till you're satisfied with it and then do a clean bulk and the gains will come.

    Good luck

    Well, as far as diet goes in relation to body composition all we need to know is your calories and macros.

    I said noticable muscle but as a general rule, you can't. There are a few exceptions: someone who has never lifted before, someone who has lifted before but completely detrained and lost a lot of size, genetic freaks and people using 'performance enhancers'. Even those people aren't going to be gaining large amounts of muscle. You might gain really small amounts.
