How many calories should one increase over maintenance weight to enhance adding muscle weight while minimizing body fat gain? Conversely, how many calories should one decrease under maintenance weight to enhance body fat loss while minimizing muscle wasting? These two questions are more advanced, so unless your trainer is a world level competitive bodybuilder they won't know, but it won't hurt to ask. I think what could be revealing here, assuming the trainer doesn't know the answer, is how the question is answered. If they are a legit trainer there are one of two ways. Either they know the answer with certainty, or they tell the potential client they don't know but will have the answer in 24 hours.
