Fat is the way your body stores fuel and it's designed to be accessed.
It takes a lot of effort to build muscle and your body uses muscle as fuel as a last resort.
If you starve yourself (caloric restriction) you will lose both.
If you get adequate calories but eat correctly to lose weight, it is possible to lose body fat and gain muscle at the same time.
