If you burn fat will you loose muscle?
This is the number one question by most adult men who attempt to burn fat. The truth is that it depends on several factors like many things. The first factor that needs to be considered is the speed at which you want to loose fat. If you are in a "rush" per say then you will need to understand some things. Extreme results call for extreme measures. It is not as bad as stitching a plastic square patch to your tongue. But if you are starving yourself you have to understand your body has to get protein and nutrients (calories) from somewhere. So if that means it has to waste your muscle tissue as said calories than your body will use this resource. It will always use the fat first. But it does this in a cycle. It doesn't spend all of the fat or all of the muscle at any one time. Your body rotates like a person eating at a buffet. The problem with doing it too fast is that your body will be consuming everything if you eat nothing. Like the guy who is starving at the buffet and keeps piling on the food. This is why I think that timing is everything when it comes to dieting and doing cardio. So many things in life are based on timing and this is no different. So I would ditch the extreme approaches and go with a steadier approach to your goals for success. Don't forget to subscribe so you can follow us. Thanks.
