bulking up without bulking diet?
Hi everyone, im new to the board. I am slightly overweight and dont really lift (untill recently), but i am of decent strenght.
I want to cut down some fat, but mainly i want to build muscle. Sincei have never really worked out before, can i eat normally and still gain muscle. Are the bulking up diets mainly for people who are already along their way/experienced.
In other words, i am jsut starting out. If i push myself at the gym but eat moderately (non bulking style), will i still gain muscle mass?
Also, I was reading up alot on low-carb diets and see that its good for weight loss. I obviously dont want to cut...but is it possible to bulk up on low carb? Can i just eat rediculously high amounts of protein/fat..would that work?
sorry if i sound dumb, just eager to learn. and i did my research, but im still confused.
