Thats because you are putting on muscle. So if your clothes are fitting better then you are losing fat.
As far as cutting; you don't and i would highly recommend NOT decreasing your caloric intake. Fat loss is determined by a very simple formula: as long as your Energy Out is greater than your energy intake, you will lose the fat. So simply speaking, just up your workout regimen and you will lose the fat.
This was terrible.
A) you argue I need to be concerned with inches and not weight, only to continue to explain how body fat works and the differences between muscle and fat. Completely ignoring your initial argument/statement that inches matter. What.
B) "cutting" comes from the process of decreasing caloric intake to lose weight, aka, cutting calories.
C) "simply increasing my workout regimen" is terrible advice. Increasing metabolism as a result of working harder is infinitely harder than simply controlling the diet. Sage advice: bodies are torn in the gym ad sculpted in the kitchen.
Do more research please.
