In so many years I am unable to see any remarcable change in muscularity. I feel like its only fat which increases and decreases 80-90% and muscle is just 10%. I am on calory deficit around 1500-1600 per day with 70-80 gm protin Fish Oil Multivitamin I have a sitting job and no physical activity (walking standing etc) aprat from daily exercise I accumulate fat around my lower abdomen and chest and back. I do 10 min HIIT 20-25 min trademill walking and 30-45 min weight training 6 days a week My goal is to be between 70- 75 kg and muscular. Need guidance which  can help here.

Hello.... Yeah, when u be on calorie deficit diet, initially u only loose  fat just deposited on upper adipose tissue but to burn stubborn fat, u need to workout much more in terms of diet and physical activity. Alone calorie reduction is not suggested as it involves all other parameters to consider. Need detailed information of your diet and medical history to guide you properly. To build muscle, intake of all other nutrients along with protien is needed. Type of protein and how much it's absorbing to the body, any anti nutritional factors that affecting the absorption of the nutrients, basal metabolic rate, medical history, drug interactions and type of exercises  etc., All these are essential to plan a diet. Hope it's helpful.... Thanq...
