    Basically what I need to know is how to keep the same amount of weight while reducing fat and replacing it with muscle. What are some of the best methods of doing that? I don't have any specific time frame where it just HAS to be done in but I'm trying to get it done as soon as possible.

    Right now I'm 6' 205 lbs. (actually I last weighed in at 203 but want to stay around 205) and although I eat healthy when I can (low calories, low fat, as much mono unsaturated fats as I can) I eat bad stuff every now and then (fried food, cheese) but only to try and stay at my weight. I work out about 4 days out the week for 2 hours a day and just recently decided to cut back on cardio some. I was running off about 1000 calories each day at the gym but went down to around 600. I hit the weights harder now but can't seem to accomplish my goal.

    Plus is there any real good way to get rid of torso fat because I do a ton resistance training to target that area but it doesn't get flatter and it doesn't seem like running is helping. Any help is appreciated and thanks.

    Read the FAQ HERE first, then in Conditioning and then in S&P.

    Basically once you have a rudimentary understanding of those, lift weights, do cardio and eat right. If you're gaining weight, cut calories. If you're losing weight, increase calories.

    Oh, and the "torso fat" you're concerned about will go away when you lose overall fat. Spot reduction doesn't work.

    Losing fat while gaining muscle is an impossible feat for most. Focus on one then the other.

    I think "impossible" is the wrong word.

    I also think they TS should be less worried about being the same weight and more worried about gaining more muscle.

    BUTTTTTT, you could try finding how many cals you need for maintenance...you know what, just eat good and train hard. Don't worry about the scale as long as you are getting stronger, faster, and not eating shit.
