    first, you cant spot reduce fat...unfortunately...what ur going to have to do is fix up ur diet, proper training, and enough cardio...this will get ur bodyfat overall lower...it would help to know what u r doing at the moment trainingwise and what and when you eat in a typical day...and tell us what ur goals are and around how much bf u have and would want to lose......things like that can help........

    it's usually hard to build mass and lose fat at the same time...the reason for this is that you need to be in a caliric deficit to loose weight, and to build mass its good to eat an excess amount of calories......its not impossible to do both at once, just difficult for most people...it would have to be done with very very good diet...just a few changes in ur current diet can be change alot overall....

    around how many cals are u consuming atm? usually 1.5g per lb. of bodyweight for protein....knowing wut and when you eat in a typical day would help alot...post it up in the diet forum to get advice...you're going to have to keep your protein high enough to keep ur muscle...and i would do HIIT for cardio...read up on that in the cardio forum.....try to eat every 3 hours and drink lots of water...have whey in water when you get up, and casein protein before bed....and of course whey straight after any workout, weights and cardio...lift heavy.....and have patience

    Good points. I think your diet is the very first thing to address. So many people start working out and eat the same way they did before. Its 2 parts, diet and exercise. One without the other is a strugle. I agree that it would be best to see your diet plan.
