Ok I am just trying to understand this a little more....
My question is when you are dieting you want to be more Catabolic or Anabolic?
I understand that being Catobolic is the breakdown of complex molecules, which can increase cortisol in turn breaking down more molecules...(I think that is right about the cortisol)
I understand that being Anabolic is the build up of complex molecules, and to be Anabolic you have to have energy(which is the catoblic process) and when you are more Anabolic you gain size....which is lean muscle
Now here is where I am getting a little confused.....If anabolic increases size(lean muscle) that would increase your matoblism and in turn burn more fat which seems to coinside with catobolic
So anabolic can in a way break down fat( prevent muscle loss because you are adding muscle being anabolic) and catobolic is breaking down fat......
That is my question if catobolism is the breaking down of compex molecules would you not want to be more catobolic? or would it be better to be more anabolic where you do not lose muscle?
