Anyone on a calorie-reduced programme will lose both muscle and fat.

On a severe calorie-reduced programme,muscle loss can account for up to 50% of weight loss.

However muscle loss can be minimised by the right choice of exercise…When weight training exercise is added to a weight-loss programme more muscle is
preserved and a greater proportion of weight of weight loss is fat loss.Intense resistance exercise should be included in your fat-loss programme…why?..weight training acts as the stimulus to muscle retention.The more muscle you have,the faster your metabolism.
