Muscle weighs more than fat, so you have to take into consideration that sometimes your scale might be lying to you when you attempt to lose weight and gain muscle at the same time but the end result is the same, being powerful and strong at the core while dropping that waist line.
Men and Women differ in both losing weight and building muscle. Men seem to have an easier time losing the weight where women struggle. And the flip side is women usually build muscle quicker than men do. There are men and women specific work outs that can be done, so the gap is closed a little bit. Women, working on their strength training a bit less and a focus on their cardio work outs, is best, where men should focus on their strength training and less on the cardio while trying to lose weight and gain muscle.
Food is about the same for both men and women. Your body will tell you what it needs and wants. Feeding it burgers and fries perhaps not the best idea, though when you’re craving stuff like that it’s an indication that you’re missing something in your diet, so try eating a turkey burger with a whole wheat bun and no mayo. Instead of fried French fries you can bake sweet potato wedges in the oven and get exactly what you are craving with less calories.
Water is also important. The average person should be drinking 8 full glasses of water a day. When working out you should try to add not just more water but also something to replenish the electrolytes you lose during weight training. Stuff like sports drinks work really well just watch the label and make sure it’s got a low sodium and low sugar you don’t want to drink away any of your calories for the day.
Local gyms offer all in one training. There you can usually get a good price on a membership, but if you can’t afford a membership you can always go to the gym with a friend who has already paid for their own membership. Guest passes are always available and it could be a way around monthly commitment. You can also work out around the house as well. Many household items can be used for strength training and weights can be found on sharing websites for a little bit of money. You could also scour yard sales as well for work out equipment like stationary bikes and elliptical machines to help you when you’re trying to lose weight and gain muscle.
So, eating right, drinking enough water to supplement yourself when working out help you to get started on your way to building muscle while losing weight.
