    I'm faced with a huge dilemma here, I really don't know whether I should be bulking or cutting. I obviously don't have much muscle to start with but on top of that I'm a bit over in terms of my body fat percentage. :sadwavey:

    What would you guys suggest?
    Thanks

    i would eat around maintenance calories for a while, but you'll probably want to up the percentage of that amount that comes from protein.

    Since you're new to lifting, you'll lose fat and build some new muscle quickly in the first 4-5 months. After that, you can pick a more specific goal and adjust your diet accordingly.
