Don't lose your hard-earned muscle! This guide and Q&A by Brad Borland shows you how to drop fat and retain muscle.

If you are like any other bodybuilder on the planet you fight for every ounce of hard-earned muscle each and every day you enter the gym. Your diet is on point, your workouts are consistent and your rest and supplement regimen is perfect. Somewhere on the road to your ultimate physique you may find yourself wanting to shed a little body fat to show off that work of art you have toiled over for so long. But do you need to sacrifice a few pounds of muscle mass for the sake of a leaner physique?

In a word: No! By tweaking your diet a little and paying close attention to your macronutrient numbers, you can melt away the fat while keeping your muscular gains. This step-by-step guide will show you how to lean up and stay huge!

Guide To Cutting Fat And Keeping Muscle

Cutting fat? Protein is king!Step 1: Protein is King

You have heard it over and over: amino acids are the building blocks of protein and protein builds muscle – period. Without adequate amounts of protein, you will not be able to hold onto that muscle you are trying to reveal to the world. Keep protein levels around 1 to 1.25 grams per pound of bodyweight (for a 200 pound lifter this would be 200 to 250 grams). Good sources include fish, chicken, lean red meat, turkey, skim milk, low-fat cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, eggs and whey protein.

Step 2: Fat is Your Friend

It can not be stressed enough that fat is essential in your quest to keep muscle while trying to lean up. Dietary fat will actually burn bodily adipose tissue and keep your metabolism in check by regulating key hormone levels such as testosterone. Keep fat intake at about 30 % of your total calorie intake. Good sources include avocado, nuts such as almonds, olive oil-based salad dressings, egg yolks, natural peanut butter and fatty fish such as salmon.

Step 3: Cycle Carbohydrates

Having had a bad reputation for the past few years carbs are essential for normal bodily functions as well as fueling those intense workouts. The trick is regulating the amount and type consumed. For our purposes try out around 2 grams of carbs per pound of bodyweight to start (this is 400 grams for our 200 pound athlete). This will be considered your base. Healthy sources include sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, green vegetables, oatmeal, spinach and apples.

Here is the variable in your plan. You will cycle these carb amounts for each week allowing your body to burn fat while still feeding your muscle. This will keep the body off guard to keep burning fat, but enough carbs every few days to keep muscle tissue. This is where a little experimenting on your part will be important. You will have a low carb day for 3 days (0.5 - 1 gram per pound) followed by a medium carb day (2 grams per pound) and finally a high carb day (2.5 to 3 grams per pound).

For our 200 pound example:

  • Low: 100 to 200g (3 days)
  • Medium: 400g (1 day)
  • High: 500 to 600g (1 day)

With a little trial and error you will have to determine if you need more or less low carb days cycled into your week. Do not be discouraged regarding keeping muscle on your frame – keeping protein and fat intakes in check you can be ensured that you will hold onto that hard-earned muscle mass.

You should be losing around 1 to 2 pounds of fat per week. Any more than that then take a day or two of low carb days out of the plan or add a medium day. Any less then add a day or two of low carb days in the cycle and/or possibly delete the high carb day.

Q&A With Brad Borland

Brad, is there any truth to the claim that eating too much protein is dangerous for the body?

There always seems to be a continued resistance against high protein intake especially amongst textbook junkies who have little or no experience in the business of building muscle. As extremely high amounts of protein may be detrimental to health (and not to mention a waste), elevated levels that of which are significantly higher than that of the sedentary population can be a necessity when it comes to both promoting muscle gain and cutting fat. A good rule of thumb is to start at around 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. Some individuals can get away with a little less and some may need a bit more. Experiment for several weeks to see where your level is.

Is it possible to get completely shredded like a bodybuilder and maintain all your muscle mass?

In a word: No. While dieting at a level to get shredded for the posing stage, it is inevitable that you will lose at least a little muscle mass. The body cannot go into an extreme mode of fat burning without sacrificing muscle tissue. The key to minimize this loss is to keep protein and fat levels in check. Keep protein levels high for muscle maintenance and take in healthy fats for energy and hormone balance – namely testosterone.

While dieting  it is inevitable that you will lose a little muscle mass.

For a beginner with an average amount of body fat that wants to build muscle and get shredded, should they do a cutting diet first, or spend some time learning how to build muscle before they try to cut fat?

Your best bet would be to cut the fat first. Reason: As you get leaner, you will look more muscular. The more muscular you become the larger you will look. Plus, being leaner is a much better way to look at the beach or poolside. Once you can see each muscle more clearly, then you can gain muscle mass at a more steady rate – just by increasing calories slightly. You will already have the knowledge to get lean, now you can stay lean and get bigger!

Should you change your training style when trying to cut fat to higher reps and lighter weight, or should you continue to use a muscle building routine?

To hold on to as much muscle as possible while dieting always use the same heavy loads and medium reps as you were using prior. This will ensure you will be able to retain muscle while dieting to cut fat. If you were to use lighter loads, the body would perceive that as a detraining period and compensate by sacrificing muscle. You must still give the muscle a need to be there. Heavy, compound movements such as bench presses, squats, leg presses, military presses, chins, rows and dips should make up the bulk of your program.

Hi Sandy,

I would base it on weight if your weight is reasonably close to a normal range. Many of us don't fall into this category, so we may have to do some tweaking and adjust the calories and macronutrients down proportionately so that we are able to lose some fat. Ultimately, you want to lose no more than (about) 2 pounds per week.

I am a beginner and my age is 23 and 68 kgs weight. I bought a whey protein for a trail. I have it after my workout one spoon with 350 ml of milk followed by a banana and an egg! the rest of the day twice a meal. My question is there are lot of pros and cons. So is it safe for me to use this? or should i minimize the intake! what do u suggest!

Hi Nate,

That's an integral aspect of carb cycling. It also allows you to time your eating, so you can eat more carbs on taxing days, and it allows you to have a few days where you can eat more carbs - so it breaks up the stress of running a long term cutting diet. Low carb approaches are notoriously good fat burning approaches, but long no carb runs are not always the best approach.

Hi I have a quick question. I'm 6'2 and 230 pounds. I have a large amount of fat and very little muscle. However I've been dieting and also doing the 3 Day Beginner workout. It's been going good and I've lost about 8 pounds in the last two weeks. My question is: should I be taking whey protein? I'm much more interested in losing weight but I'd also like to hold onto a little of that muscle.

Hi Patrick,

Congrats on the great progress so far. If you want to retain as much muscle as possible, you don't need to use whey protein, but you will need a minimum amount of protein. Many choose to use whey protein because of convenience, and because a serving is generally cost effective compared to a serving of chicken, fish or beef.

Hi Chris,

I might suggest a product like Scivation Essential FA. It is higher quality compared to most fish oil supplements, and does contain Omega 3 & 6.

For fats, you can also turn to almonds, walnuts, eggs, some dairy and natural peanut butter. Avacado is a good choice as well.

Hi Haris,

You don't want to increase your cardio too rapidly when trying to cut fat. I would recommend sticking with 2 days per week during the first month of cutting, and then slowly adding more if needed.

I do cardio as well, two days of HIIT sprints 600m and 3 low intense cardio of 35min.

I would use the high carb days on the heaviest/hardest training days, moderate on moderate days, and low carb days on off days. Eat a bit more post-workout on hard training days, etc.

Hi,

Great article. I am 5'8 and 176 lbs. Currently I work out every day. Hour of cardio on elliptical machine 4 days a week and 2 days a week running for 45 minutes. The last day will be either or. Sometimes I do skip a day as well. I also lift weights about 3 -4 times a week on top of that. My goal is to lose as much fat as possible (35lbs so far, was 211 lbs 5 months ago). The question I have is, for this goal how should I tune up my workouts? Should I lift 5 times a week with cardio only 3 times?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dan,

I think you have a very solid approach right now. Lifting 3-4 times per week is generally optimal for most naturals. If you feel you are losing muscle, I would cut back on the cardio a bit. But as long as the results are coming, stay the course.

Hey Steve, Im about 208 5'11. I want to lose the fat that Im carrying and started working out 4 days a week. I would like to keep the muscle I have and burn the fat. I read that you wrote its virtually impossible to gain muscle at the same time of losing the fat. Im not expecting to get huge overnight. but, i would like to see some results. Should I be eating 200+grams of protein a day? I dont want to lose the weight(fat) and look like crap. What should I be doing? Everyone has so much advise to give and i dont know what to believe. This is what im eating a day. Will this help me lose the weight?
7am 4 egg whites and a packet of plain oatmeal
9-9:30am apple, low fat yogurt and a handful of almonds
9:45am to 11:00am workout
11am post workout 30g ISO protein
12-12:30 Chicken wrap
3pm handful of almonds
6pm piece of chicken breast or lean steak with a cup of broccoli or string beans salad with vinegar
8:30 30g protein shake

Hi Steven,

Follow Brad's advice. Brad is a very knowledgeable trainer and has the body to back his words. His advice is straight forward. You definitely need to eat regular protein feedings to achieve your goals.

Try to model your food intake on the advice above. Figure out what amounts of carbs, protein and fats you are eating each day, and modify them as needed.

Hi, Since my dad had some health issues I had to stop all the excersice i was doing. I used to go to the gym at least 4 times a week and run 6 to 9 miles day in day out. had to stop for about a year and finally got the chance to start again. Im 5,9 and about 185 pounds but have a bit of a belly. Ive been doing shawn's 3 day muscle building split for the last 4 weeks and have seen some improvement but still want to get rid of the extra fat. I was thinking of walking and eventually jogging 3 miles a day (back from work). Is this a good Idea or will I loose too much muscle?. Im not looking to be huge but still would like to lean up and gain about 10 pounds of muscle. Should I change to a 4 day split?

The best place to start when looking for fat loss and muscle retention is with diet. Here are a couple articles that will help:

http://www.muscleandstrength.com/articles/your-go-to-guide-for-cutting-f...

https://www.muscleandstrength.com/articles/how-to-create-a-bodybuilding-...

Moderate cardio generally won't impact muscle mass unless your diet is way off.

I would stick with a 3 day split for about 2-3 months, and then possible try a 4 day split.

Yes, too much alcohol consumption can lead to stalled and even sometimes reversal of gains from the gym. It sounds like your intake is pretty high - you need to curtail it a bit if you want to make significant, long-lasting gains in muscle mass and strength.

Too much alcohol can deplete glycogen stores, dehydrate muscle cells and take the body out of nitrogen balance to make it very difficult for the body to build muscle. If you are serious about building your physique and striving toward your true potential, then those libation late nighters have to be tamed a little.

This is not to say your consumption has to stop all together, it just means to regulate yourself down to just a few drinks on the weekend. Also, another tip if you decide to knock back a couple is to drink plenty of water - for every drink of alcohol, have the equivalent amount of water to counter the dehydration. And be sure you do not go out on an empty stomach. Eat a balanced meal of complex carbs, protein and healthy fats prior to your night out.

Please check out these two articles on my site:

Those picks sound good except for the apple post workout. Apples are low on the GI scale with a good bit of fiber. You will want to stick with more simple sugars such as gatorade or white bread with jelly.

Good luck,

Love the article! But specifically to my case, I am 6'2 180lbs, and I've been working out for 2 months now, gaining 10lbs of muscle, and about 30lbs stronger in my bench/squat. However, I feel as if I have platued and I'm still desiring a more 'cut' midsection. Right now I am working out 4 days a week, with 10 sets of 5 for bench squat and also shoulders/back days. Would you suggest cardio days, and if so, when and for how long? Also, in my attempt to look more 'defined' should I cut back on protein? Thanks !!!

Hi!

I have been training for 1,5years now and went 58kg->82kg. I got pretty much muscle but i have also bodyfat somewhere 23-28%. I really liked to start cutting my fat first time in my life and this is the way I liked to try!

Could you calculate my diet calories? Im pretty confused about the ratios i should use when starting this diet, and I want to do everything right, Cut fat without cutting my hard earned muscles. My BMR is 2900Kcal, im 18years old. 167cm tall and weight 82kg.....=<

Please can you give me specific ratios on what to eat? How much protein, fats and carbohydrates (in every carb day like low/high) I would love that!

Im also doing Power muscle burn workout 4days a week, is it ok to continue doing that? How much and where i should add cardio?

I would be very thankful if you could help me out here!

Hi Samuli,

I have learned a lot from your site and muscle and strength, I'm about a week into your dieting plan and I'm loving it, already seeing small results. I did want to know, however, if I work out first thing in the morning, should i just take the pre-workout meal for breakfast followed by the post workout, then breakfast and lunch, or eat breakfast as usual then take the post-workout afterwards, eating lunch later? What about my off days, I've just been eating five meals on my off days instead of the six, eliminating one of the afternoon snacks. Thanks for your help.

Hunter,

The best bet is to shift your meals as you had stated; a preworkout meal and postworkout meal bookending your training time and then afterwords eating your planned solid food breakfast.

Regarding eating on nontraining days, yes, you can eliminate a snack or two but be sure to keep protein high as you will need those all-important amino acids to help with repair and growth. Cutting a few carbs out is a wise choice since you will not be expending as much energy compared to a training day.

Hey Brad I am loving the diet plan you referenced at
http://workoutlab.net/index/building-muscle-and-burning-fat-simultaneous...,
seeing some results after just a couple of weeks, I did however, want to know when you say 1 or 2 scoops of protein, how many grams are in your scoop? I have been using the Vitasport Pro7 protein complex with amino acids for my snacks in between meals, one of their scoops is 41g and 34grams of that is protein, but I'm flying through it and to use as directed is getting pretty expensive? Just hoping your serving size was smaller to cut back on cost. Thanks for your expertise.

All the best,

Hi Hunter,

The "normal" or most common size for one scoop of pure whey protein is around 22 grams. The protein I reference is just that - whey protein. Very little or no carbs or fats. Search here at MS.com for a more pure form of whey for a lower price.

hey Brad! I am 17 174 cm tall and i weight about 74 kg. Ive been training for 2 years and a half now and have made progress, but recently i found out i didnt pay much attention to cardio workouts and gained some fat especially in the lower part of my abs. I want to get ripped before adding more muscle and want to keep as much as possible of it while i cut fat. ive been training with one muscle building routine for 6 months and want to know if i should continue with this workout while i do cardio maybe 3 times HIIT and 1 day of low intensity cardio per week. I will also consume around 2500 calories per day and as much as possible of protein. I always push myself to the limit when i workout.

Thanks in advance for the advice you consider the best for my situation.

Hi Brad

I agree with the statements of the article you sent and I am up to try it as my main goal now is to get ripped.
My current routine is a 4 day split.On mondays I train biceps and chest. The next day I train quads and harmstrings. Wednesday is a day off. Then I continue with triceps and shoulders Finally, friday is for back, calves and abs. I always use as much weight as possible, but not as much as let it injure me. It´s similar to the 4 day muscle burn workout split that is posted in this website.

Thaks for the advice again.

Greetings

Looks like a solid routine. Just be sure when starting any diet or training prgram to stick with it long enough (usually 6-8 weeks) to see a significant change (good or bad). After then you can adjust if necessary.

Train smart,

Hi! im 5"7 i was 200lbs before. i started dieting and exercise, went down to 175lbs. I still have problems with my belly though. i want to gain big muscle. i bought this serious mass supplement. was that a good idea to consume 1250 calories per scoop but have 50 grams of protein? will i get fat from it? should i continue with this product and do cutting after i consumed all of it? thanks! I'm confused on what to do next.
