    Exclamation Would appreciate some advice

    Hi all, I want to gain lean muscle but also want to lose body fat but don’t know what macros I should use. I know what my daily calories should be.

    What is a good percentage to go for ?
    Should I go high in good fats and protein and a moderate amount of carbs or no fats and higher carbs or ?

    Should I lose fat eating less carbs and the. Gain muscle eating more carbs ?

    You need to pick a goal, either lose fat (caloric deficit) or gain muscle (caloric surplus). You might be able to see a tiny bit of lean muscle gain in a deficit (recomp), but not a significant amount.

    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Thanks for the help mate. So to gain muscle (calorie surplus) what’s good macros ? Can you still gain good muscle mass eating higher good fats then good carbs ?

    Dude, read the thread he linked you to in post 2.

    There is no reason for us to answer each individual question you ask when it is answered in that thread.
