Up until about six months ago, I could eat whatever the hell I wanted. it was always hard for me to gain mass, so I've been accustomed to eating a LOT my entire life. Well, now I'm getting a gut. I'm 43 and it just started happening about six months ago and just in the last month I'm realizing it's a BIG problem that I don't have the answer to.
If I flat-out cut my calories, it seems as though my muscle shrinks but not the fat around my gut. This to me is a double-whammy. Low mass and a gut. I cannot have this!!!
Any ideas? Again, if I cut my diet or even do heavy cardio, it seems as though my muscle shrinks faster than my fat. Is this normal?
