    Weight training burns a lot of calories and the more muscle you have the more cals you will burn. With proper nutrition, you can do both.

      I dont see why you couldnt do both, unless there is a specific reason you would need to focus on weight loss (medical, personal).

        Define "beginner stage." What does your typical diet and training look like now, if any?

          Ok, my diet looks like this

          Meal 1, 3 eggs scrambled
          1/2 cup oats wit cocco and Splenda for flavor

          Meal2 WPI 2 scoops no fat yogut and banana

          Meal 3 150gs chicken 150gs sweet potato 1/4 cup broccolli

          Meal 4 same as meal 2 but some other no banana

          Meal 5 same as meal 3

          Then it's time to hit gym.
          Pre work out … pre jym!
          Post work out … post gym + orange

          Post work meal 3 eggs plus 1/2 cups oats

          Additional I'm pumping in about 6 liters water a day

          I only have one cheat meal a week and that Saturdays which is bacon and eggs and pot of coffee, with Real sugar. The rest of week no man made sugar only what I get from splenda and fruit

          My post work drink has around 30gs dextros.

                Take it from a former/current/future fat guy. Strip the fat first. It's just better all around.

                          This is just my opinion and just to be clear I am far from an expert and don't even really like giving advice because i don't want to give bad advice but here it goes . . .

                          You probably didn't get to 30%bf by lifting 5x a week, cardio 6x a week and eating a diet that looks anything close to what you posted. I would look back at what you have been doing. I'm all for doing as little as possible to get results. If you have been eating a not so clean diet and not going to the gym then the workouts alone are probably enough for a caloric defecit. I would figure the total cals you were eating, eat close to that but with cleaner food choices and see where that takes you. When that quits working then add a little cardio or clean up something else in your diet. From what you posted it just seems your going to stall and have no where to go.
