Hello Blind Community,
I am a skinny fat (25% body fat, BMI 21) and have been working out for past 16 weeks. My workout is weights, 5 days a week and doesn't include cardio. I have a sitting desk job with minimal physical activity.
The problem I am facing is accelerated rise in belly fat which could be result of carbs from all the food I am taking to increase my protein, calories and fibers intake.
Any suggestion how to control that without losing out on my muscle gains? Should I include post workout cardio? .
There aren't many high protein/high calorie food low in carbs for a vegetarian diet. I am definitely avoiding taking high amounts of protein supplements which are low in carbs but can be harmful to liver.
Apparently, I have put on 4 Kg (~8.8 lbs) in last 16 weeks out of which 75% was fat mass(almost everything on belly). Again how to gain muscle mass and lower the fat in my body.

Just in case it needs to be said, you won't lose muscle by fasting. The human body is smarter than that :)
