If your answer is YES, you are wrong. Well, not totally wrong, but what you’re really wanting to do is lose fat. Anybody can lose weight. You just don’t eat and you will lose weight. Unfortunately, the weight you lose will be both muscle and fat. The goal to successful weight loss is to preserve as much muscle as possible, or possibly even gain some, while at the same time lose as much body fat as possible. Your body fat % is a key indicator of your success, not the scale. In fact, stay off the scale. Muscle is vital to your success for losing fat. Muscles have these little fat burning powerhouses called mitochondria. Mitochondria are cellular power plants that are responsible for the production of energy. It’s in the mitochondria that fat is metabolized. With other words: give your body a reason to create more Mitochondria, the more you train your muscles the more fat you will lose.
