Weight Loss Basics
Unfortunately, there is no magic pill for weight loss, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be as hard as many people make it out to be.
Weight loss can be simple! You just have to work at it, and simple things can make a big difference! So let’s get started!
What most people want to do when losing weight or getting leaner is lose body fat while maintaining, or even increasing, muscle mass. This helps to give an aesthetic look that shows off the muscle you have already built. However, oftentimes people try to lose weight too fast and actually end up decreasing their muscle mass.
Overall, lowering body weight is an easy concept to understand. You just have to eat fewer calories than you expend daily. However, if you also want to maintain your hard-earned muscle, then you need to be careful about how you go about your weight loss.
The problem is our body does not care how we look. It just wants to survive and, unless properly stimulated, body fat is more valuable to survival than muscle.
This is because muscle is energy costing from both activity and being vascular (has blood vessels). These characteristics of muscle make it difficult to maintain compared to body fat which is stored energy that can be used for survival when needed. This poses a problem for those trying to maintain their muscle while losing weight, but there is a solution…strength training!
Of course, you can do long cardio sessions and burn off a ton of calories, but think of this…
Cardio burns calories today, muscle burns calories forever.
What this means is that by doing a cardio workout you will burn calories during and after the session, but the effects will wear off within 24-48 hours, depending on the intensity. Then you have to do another session to get a similar caloric burn.
When building muscle, you are increasing your Basal Metabolic Rate to where you burn calories all day, every day.
Of course, strength training and cardiovascular training should be used in combination to present the greatest results. Just remember not to be stuck on one thing or the other.
For your diet, to lose weight and allow for the least muscle loss, you must make only small, incremental changes over an extended period of time.
You should start by being in a 200-500 calorie deficit daily while training regularly, in order to start losing weight. Only drop another 200-500 calories per day after that has stopped working with your current workload.
If you cut out too many calories too fast, then you will lose muscle and plateau your results.
So, start slow and make gradual changes to your diet and exercise.
