gta129 saidI started at 120lbs and bulked to 132lbs. I could really see some mass on my chest and legs. But now I also have this huge guts sticking out. I never worked out my abs during bulking thinking it will burn too much calorie and hard my bulking. Now I realize that's stupid. But how do I lose the belly fat without losing the mass i gained from bulking?
Thanks for any help.
Little Buddy, Sweety... you're not fat. You're diminutive / tiny. That's not a bad thing. You can have fat around your mid section, and not be eating enough. When you don't get enough calories, your body starts storing fat. That's why fat people get and stay fat and why diets fail and folks get EVEN FATTER. I'm sure you've seen skinny guys with big stomachs or pictures of starving folks the same way. EAT.
There WAS another topic here from last week, that went through this, and I don't find it now, but, you need to get you calories up, and get busy with HIIT.
I'm 5'5" as well, and weighed 150 was 15 and I wasn't fat, either.
The secret to being lean is having muscle and staying busy and eating adequate calories to have a fast metabolism. You do that by eating enough to support vigorous activity and giving it some time. Getting bigger / smaller is a common sense thing. If you eat more than you burn, you'll get bigger; if you don't, you'll get smaller. If you don't eat, you'll look like crap and feel like crap and get fatter.
You'll do better if you eat, and do HIIT, and make consistent gains over the long term. I weighed 175 when I was 17, and I was lean. At 28, I was 230#. It's a progession that is all based on science and the ability to listen / observe what's happening with the human machine.
Eat. Do HIIT. Lift. Eat some more.
