I believe the issue was whether u can lose fat and gain muscle at the same time. I my case, which u are not refuting, i lost 10-12 lbs of fat and gained 2-4 lbs of weight in the same period. This means that i gained 12-14 lbs of muscle (plus maybe a bit of water i) in the same period of losing 10-12 lbs of fat. I believe this is an example of losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time. It makes no sense to say that it was possible becus i was in a caloric surplus, becus that would mean that u are accepting that is it possible to lose 20 lbs of fat and gain 30 lbs of lbs at the same time since that person will be in a caloric surplus of 10 lbs for the period???
