In this video, we’re going to talk about how to lose fat and build muscle at the same time.

Exercise is responsible for about 15% of fat loss. Dietary changes make up for the other 85%.

While your diet makes up the bulk of your fat loss, it’s still important to exercise.

The key to building muscle while losing fat is to increase the intensity and volume of your exercise.

If you’re on keto and aren’t exercising, you will stop gaining muscle and possibly even lose muscle mass.

Keep in mind that you need plenty of recovery time and sleep after exercising. If you overtrain without recovering, the benefits of exercise reduce significantly.

Exercise can stimulate growth hormone up to 700%—which helps you build muscle.

The lower your carbs, the more you will lose weight because your insulin level will lower. But, insulin is also essential for the growth of muscle. If you increase your carbs to build muscle, you’ll also stop losing fat. So what can you do to both build muscle and lose fat?

Increasing your protein can help increase insulin without stopping fat loss—if you get the right balance. Try around 8oz of protein per meal.

Fasting is the most important thing for losing weight because it brings your insulin levels down. If you’re doing intermittent fasting, you can handle more protein without cause fat gain. Fasting can increase growth hormone by up to 2000%. Just make sure you have 1-1.5 tsp of sea salt and plenty of potassium and magnesium per day while fasting, or you won’t have the energy to exercise.
