The answer to this question has changed from no to yes as we have learned from recent proven and accepted studies that show you can build muscle and lose fat at the same time. Considered to be mutually exclusive only 30 years ago we now know that it can be done but it is tough.
There are two interesting ways of adjusting the diet to enable this if you are training your whole body three times a week. The diet is split in two parts with the first Low calorie/low carb portion followed immediately by the High calorie/high carb portion.
Splitting your daily diet from 50% protein down to 20% protein is something that will get your body in a fast fat burning mode as you slip into a calorie deficit but only for about 6 or 8 hours and then you pig out. It has to do with circadian rhythms, exercise and nutrient timing which motivate this type of program.
However there is more than one way to increase your muscle gaining efforts and get fat-loss at the same time is by diet manipulation and supplementation. This is assuming that you are training correctly because HIIT has proven itself to speed up fat-loss but it can also decrease your strength if you are not using it correctly.
Effective muscle gaining weight programs are usually training your whole body using compound movements. The definition of a novice is someone who has been weight training for less than a year but many soon start on a split routine training 4 or 5 times a week.
The first year of weight training you will pick up more muscle at a faster rate than you will ever get after the first year. The law of diminishing returns applies when you are gaining strength. The more muscle you have the more difficult it is to add more muscle.
