Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
You cannot turn fat into muscle. If you gain fat quickly, chances are you'll gain muscle quite quickly too, dependent on your body type. You can do both, build muscle and lose fat at the same time but I'd concentrate on one more than the other and let the other be a 'side-effect'.
If I were you, I would cut down on fat for a while until you're decently toned (8% - 10% body fat, maybe?). If you want a good physique, this would be better, but if you're in quick need of power and strength, then start lifting.
Question, how many calories do you burn usually per day? And what's your RMR?
