Body Recomposition: Lose Fat and Gain Muscle at the Same Time

Fat-to-lean mass ratio is body composition. Some people confuse body composition and body fat percentage, yet body fat is simply one element. Muscle, bones, ligaments, tendons, organs, tissues, and fluids make up all lean mass except body fat. Water may make up part of the body.

What is body composition?

Body recomposition involves fat loss and muscular gain. Body recomposition tries to lose fat and grow muscle simultaneously, unlike "bulking and cutting" when you put on a lot of weight initially (muscle and fat) and then go on a severe calorie restriction to reduce fat and reveal muscle. 

Recomposition of the body?

Body recomposition is fat loss, not weight. Body recomposition can maintain or gain weight—remember "muscle weighs more than fat"? Somewhat true. Fat has less density than muscle. Body recomposition changes your shape, not weight.

Forget weight loss

A body recomposition plan isn't a fad diet because it burns fat and builds muscle. Together, healthy weight loss and muscle gain are sustainable. Keep doing those practices and you'll love your new body. Moderate, persistent body recomposition generates sustainable results.

Body recomposition takes time

Losing fat requires calorie maintenance. Eat fewer calories than you expend to lose weight. Scientifically, aerobic and resistance exercise plus a healthy diet are ideal for fat loss. Realistic objectives and proper diet are needed for safe, sustainable fat loss. Risking disordered eating is never worthwhile.

Lose fat

Muscle building requires weight training and protein ingestion. Strength training is necessary to change your body composition since without it, your muscles won't expand.

Build muscle

To gain muscle, you must eat more calories than you expend. Every macronutrient is vital, but protein is crucial for muscle growth. Without enough protein, your body will struggle to rebuild weight-training-damaged muscle.
