Topic: How can I build muscle mass, tone my body and lose weight fast?
January 28, 2020 / By Hyacinth Question:
I'd like to lose weight and build muscle mass. My goal is 20 lbs weight loss over 2 - 3 months. I want to tone my body and I need a physical fitness and healthy nutrition program to do this. I want to do this through diet and exercise. My aim is just to do this through exercise and portion control. No extreme diets just health foods and training. All successful suggestions are welcome. Please tell me what has worked for you?

When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey
cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your
diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
your problem areas for men and women. It's not necessarily to become a
bodybuilder or even join a gym - a couple of dumbbells will help you
to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

Hi Mike. Man I understand you perfectly. I've tried many things over the years to address the exact same situation. I finally succeeded.
The way in which you phrased this question shows me you're experienced in exercise, diet and training, so I'm going to be brief here.
What it boils down two is two things:
1) Experiment, and
By "Experiment" I mean you need to test out different combinations of training and eating strategies. WHY?? Because everybody reacts differently to training and diet based on age, genetics, body type, lifestyle, etc. Sorry man but you must trust me on this - you need to try things and see how it affects YOU. For example, I learned that running for 45 minutes+ actually did nothing for my fat % as I got older, and simply walking at a good pace for the same time was what got the fat off. And walking in the morning after drinking a protein shake was more effective than walking on an empty stomach.
Regarding supplements there are some that can help but you need to be careful - both of artificial ingredients and marketing hype - but you know that already. Stay away from Hydroxycut please. What has worked for me is something new called 'Acai Fire for Men' - which is acai berry obviously BUT formulated for men. I don't know how they did it but that stuff worked. I read about it on the web at http://hubpages.com/hub/acaifire4men-freetrial My experience was much like the guy who wrote that article.
Bottom line there is no quick fix solution but the solution nevertheless is there - you just have to find it yourself.
To build muscle correctly you want to make sure that you're keeping your rep ranges in the correct range:http://www.infobarrel.com/Lift_for_Strength
Measure out there that bowl of cereal or even oatmeal, including the fruit, nuts, maple syrup, milk, and yogurt you enhance it. Have a set of measuring cups and spoons readily available instead of eyeballing.

Going low carb is that can encourage weight loss. Limit the carbs (especially polished carbs like muffins and bagels) and can include a little fat.
