When to start building muscle?
I have currently been doing the SCD for 3 weeks now and so far have lost a total of 14 pounds to bring me to 174 from 188. I am still overweight for my height so I know i still have more fat loss to do before I start gaining muscle but when is the best time to start gaining muscle? Should I just get my body fat as low as possible and then build muscle or just start building muscle once I'm in the healthy weight range?

I don't think you should wait until your body fat percentage is as low as possible; building muscle takes a lot of energy, and having fat stores to supplement their growth helps.
There really is no perfect time to start building muscle; you will probably lose some fat in the process, anyway.
Personally, I'm waiting until I get around 18% body fat before going on Occam's, but it is my preference.
