When you can reduce fat to look and feel better, as well as increase muscle to be fitter and more agile, it’s overall good business. Burning fat to promote muscle gain is a common theme in fitness and bodybuilding. It is important to understand that there is a link between the two. Your body needs energy to build muscle, so you need to feed your body the right food. A certain amount of intake of foods with fats and carbohydrates is good because by eating them, you ingest the raw materials that your body can convert into energy to repair, build and develop.
Therefore, the fat burning process is natural. Your body is comfortable with it, and more importantly, expects to do it. The critical factor here is the amount of carbohydrates and fat you include in what you eat. If you eat too much, it becomes a surplus for requirements. What your body cannot use immediately, it will set aside, for example, as layers of body fat. On the other hand, if you eat too little fat, your body won’t get the energy supplies it needs. That is why it is not recommended to try to increase muscle mass while eliminating all fat from the diet.
After burning fat, you also need to make sure that your body makes good use of this energy. You can do this with the right activities and exercises to gain muscle. Depending on the results you want (for example, feeling fitter, looking better, increasing your athletic performance), your muscle building activities will trigger a response in your body to repair and strengthen the muscles you have worked on. To do this, your body will need to rest, but it will also need energy, so we are back full circle to burn fat.
In short, burning fat and gaining muscle are complementary in nature. One helps the other to have a balanced body that functions properly.
