we get this question a lot, so let's get into the nitty gritty of how fat loss actually works, starting with the basics of energy balance:
If you're eating in a surplus, your body will store excess of any macronutrient as either body fat or muscle tissue depending on your training stimulus, glycogen storage tanks, and ratios of macronutrients (carbs, proteins, fats). If you're serious about adding muscle to your frame and/or you identify with the ectomorph body type, this phase will be particularly effective. Some fat gain along with muscle gain is inevitable, but that can easily be managed as you exit the surplus stage in time.
