I've been eating Paleo for 6 weeks and I love it. I've also started doing cardio in the morning about 5 times a week and weights at night about 4 times a week. I work in a warehouse so I get plenty of physical activity during the day as well. From day to day at work I can feel myself getting stronger. I've gained 1/2" on my biceps. I was 205 when I started on June 1st and I'm down to 195 now. I've also lost three inches off my waist. I'm male, 35 y/o, 5' 7". I want to get to around 165 lbs with 8-10% body fat.
Here's my question... I'm please with my progress so far, but am I making a mistake by trying to lose weight and build muscle at the same time? Should I focus on weight loss first and then worry about muscle-building? I know adding muscle will increase my daily caloric requirements so I figured I'm doing the right thing by working on both, just wanted to get some second opinions.
