How do I build muscle and lose weight at the same time?

Hello. I’m 6’3 and I weigh 198 pounds. I have a little bit of a gut and thin arms. I’ve started lifting weights and drinking protein shakes to build muscle.

How can I effectively build up my arms and legs but at the same time lose the weight around my mid-section?

Don’t the protein shakes make me gain weight?

I also do two days of hard cardio and I work my abs hard during my lifting sections.

Anyone have a good plan to build muscle and lose a little weight at the same time?

    Excerising takes care of that for you. As you exercise, fat will be burned and muscle will be gained!

    You should focus on 1 goal at a time, otherwise, you will do neither well. I’d suggest 5-6 days of cardio for 30-60 minutes per session. Vary the intensity- some days will be hour long sessions at a relatively easy pace, while other days should be intense for no more than 30 minutes at a time. The key is to mix it up and constantly vary your routine. As for strength training, I’d stick to just 2X per week while trying to lose weight. Once you are happy with your weight, increase that to 3X per week. Just be sure to give yourself a day of rest between sessions.Protein shakes in themselves won’t make you gain weight. They can be a valuable addition to help you gain muscle after an intense strength training session. I would only have them following your strength training sessions. Otherwise, they are just extra calories.
