Lose Fat, Gain Muscle

Answered on August 19, 2014

I'v started the Paleo diet via Aglaee Jacob's excellent method. I'm amazed at how my muscles are emerging as time goes on. I understand that it's inevitable to see the muscle as the fat melts away, but I'm confused about the claims made that muscle was gained while fat was lost and no mention of working out or exercising. Can this really happen-gaining muscle/losing fat without changing your lifestyle dramatically?

Outside steroids being the stimulus. The body with its natural hormones will not produce muscle growth without some form of stimulus.

I didn't downvote this but maybe they downvoted because steroids will typically lead to muscle mass gains without exercise. Obviously exercise would lead to yet greater gains, but hormones do play a role. +1 for balance.

I laugh that someone downvotes without explaining their reasoning.

You can lose fat without working out, but for muscles to grow, they need stimulus.
