Is it true...
that trying to lose fat AND gain muscle simultaneously is a mistake? Don't get me wrong. I know I can do both but it seems the process for either is going too slow. I'm doing a CKD as well as working out 6 days per week and cardio 6 days per week. I did the CKD about 2 years ago and it seemed that the fat fell off like it was nothing. The only difference is that now I've added weight-training and cardio in the mix. Before, all I did was jumping jacks.
Basically, I'm wondering if I should focus on losing fat first and then, once I'm satisfied with that, start lifting again. I have noticed some fat loss as well as muscle gain but I feel it may be more beneficial to focus on one at a time...
Anyone else noticed this?

No. I'm saying I am lifting weights and I think it has slowed my fat loss down as compared to a previous CKD I was on.

Keep at your lifting, don't drop it just because you don't want to 'gain' weight. You can lose weight while lifting quite easily, so long as your diet is tailored for that purpose.

Oh yea. I'm not worried about weight. I'm making progress, it just seems like its taking too long lol

I know it takes hard work and dedication. I'm not unhappy. Just sometimes I get a little down on myself but the next day I wake up, look in the mirror and I know I'm doing something right! This isn't my first rodeo, I was just thinking out loud.
