Sorry OP... Here is my response; Quick 6EF will say "Dont listen to him", but I have actual experience.

I do watch total calorie intake and work on muscle growth and cardio at the same time. I've gone from around 225lb to 200 lbs. I am a former D1 football player and have learned how to increase muscle mass while losing weight or maintaining...from some of the best trainers at Michigan, California, and DePapes. My % body fat is now around 12% down from over 20%. Keep in mind I am over 40 so thats pretty good. I had by body fat measured at 6% while in college (water tank) so my current %body fat is my best guess.

Cardio - everyday (bike 25 min), run 2x per week, foot drills 2x / week:
The best way to maintain mass at the same time is to fatigue your muscles but different areas each day. I do a 4 day split. Day 1: chest and tri's. Day 2: back and bi's 3: Shoulders 4: legs 5: day off.
note - each set is pyramid style with a peak at 80% of max wt. I also take at least one week off of weights each quarter.

Good luck and I apologize again. I'm a do'er not an internet Gym rat.

All I read was the first line; I'll take that as a compliment. SoloX2 is a smart dude! Glad we finally got some brains in this thread.

Ken, for being over 40 you sure have a lot to learn. You've been on this planet 16+ years more than I have, but yet you can't back up your claims with facts.

OP what you can conclude from all of this is that you need to keep a close eye on your caloric intake. Depending on your activity level, reduce your daily intake by ~350-500 and keep an eye on the scale. If you prefer the mirror, that works too.
