Lose fat and make room for muscle.

This is what 5 pounds of fat look like compared to roughly 10-13 pounds of lean body mass.

An easier way to lose fat besides the obvious taking care of your diet is by adding lean body mass. You burn 50 extra calories by adding 1 pound of lean mass in your body. So by the time you reach 10 pounds of lean mass, you’ll burn 500 calories per day.

To lose 1 pound of fat, you need to burn 3,500 calories. So if you gain those 10 pounds of muscle you could burn a pound of fat every 3 days.

How to lose fat quickly

The best way to do this is by doing exercises at least 3 days a week.  These exercises should include cardio and weight lifting.  You exercises will depend on where you are now and where you want to be.

In addition to a personalized exercise program, you also need to follow a healthy diet.  Combining a healthy diet with exercise will allow your body to lose fat and gain lean body mass.  This is exactly what you want if your goal is weight loss/ fat loss.
