Dieting for weight loss means you will lose both fat and muscle. Fat loss is good, but muscle loss is not.
When you lose muscle, you actually slow down your metabolism, which is one of the big reasons it can be so hard to keep weight off.
It is also the reason why it gets harder to lose weight each time you "try again."
The Right Way to Lose Weight and Keep it Off
If you really want to be successful in your weight loss efforts (meaning you keep it off), you need to make sure that you DON'T lose muscle while dieting.
How do you do this? Strength training.
When you have a consistent strength training program while dieting, you will not only lose weight faster...but it will almost all be from fat with little to no muscle loss.
This means that once the weight is off, you will keep it off! And let's not forget about the toned look that strength training provides.
