Ok, I am completely confused on what to do, when to eat, what to eat to burn fat and preserve muscle after cutting. I keep researching but I keep finding 1000s of things that counteract with each other. Some say dont cut carbs just calories, some say do cardio before weight lifting, some say do not run on empty stomach, dont do cardio for more then 30 mins some say work out for an hour then another hour cardio.
It is super confusing.
Can someone give me a plan I can follow that you tried before and helped you cut fat and preserve/gain muscle at the same time?
When should I do cardio, how long? After working out or separate days?
Should I cut out carbs later on the day? or should I eat complex carb in the am and simple at pm like veggies
