Question: Is it possible to lose weight and gain muscle at the same time? Just curious. I've heard running loses weight quicker, but loses muscle quicker too as opposed to walking, which is slower weight loss, less muscle loss.

Best thing is to go get some Mens Health, go to askmen.com, and become a member to the bodybuilding.com forum! Im telling you bud, those websites will help you so much more! ... But if you don't feel like doing all that. Just do a lot of circuits when you work out, have like 9 work outs all planned out and put med. weight on it and do 1 set of a lot of reps then jump RIGHT to the next work out. (NO BREAKS!)..and RUN RUN RUN... and if you don't have the right mindset to be dedicated go buy the book NO EXCUSE LEADERSHIP. Good luck bud.

always have vegetables on hand saute a big bag of frozen mixed vegetables in olive oil and garlic add some red pepper or turmeric for additional flavor and separate into portion sized containers for the fridge

use the freezer to add some extra oomph to summer foods freeze grapes for some bite sized delights or get a popsicle mold and freeze some greek yogurt with berries

You need to add about 700 calories a day. Men need more calories than women, and your body won't repair itself as well without needed calories. Consuming more protein than you need won't make you build muscle any faster. You'll pee most of it out, and can actually do kidney damage by consuming excess amounts for long periods of time. Go to the link below to calculate how much protein you actually need. I would make sure to eat lots of fruits and veggies (on that diet you aren't getting most of your mineral and vitamin needs met). Really, this is very easy, and I don't know why people don't get it-eat a BALANCED DIET, and you will be healthy. Fruits, veggies, lean proteins, whole grains, lots of water, and low fat dairy. www.mypyramid.gov
