I've been looking to make a lifestyle change and get healthier. I've been struggling with my weight for a long time now and I'm ready to finally make a change. I'm looking to lose some excess fat but also to build muscle, as I know muscle helps with fat loss and overall health.
I know that diet plays a huge role in both weight loss and muscle gain, so I'm wondering what kind of diet would be best for achieving both goals simultaneously. Should I focus on high protein or cutting carbs? Or is there another approach that would work better?
For some context, I'm a 30-year-old female, 5'6", and currently weigh around 170 pounds. I work a sedentary office job but I'm planning on incorporating exercise into my routine as well.
Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
