Our expert says:
No, it's not possible. They are two completely different tissues, different compartments, different mechanisms for developing. What can happen is that people build muscle without losing fat, and they end up being fit but not having lost too much weight. That's possible, and can be avoided by doing more cardio, which burns fat. This is why the mix of cardio and weight training is most effective - one builds muscle, the other burns fat.
Hope that clears it up a little.
