A lot of people think exercise is as easy as: lose fat gain muscle. Unfortunately the reality of it is not as rosy and romantic as this is spelt out to be. Quite a number of techniques, methods and guides must be implemented before you can look at yourself in the mirror and manage a smile. Here I am going to show you the different ways you can use to lose excess weight and build up muscle.

Body fat builds up on top of muscle fibers thereby making it hard to gain muscle. To remove these excess fats and calories you should increase your body’s rate of metabolism. Metabolism can be increased in a very simple way: having small meals after relatively short periods of time. With time you should see yourself losing all the limiting calories and fats.

A fat free diet should be replaced by a healthy one if you want to lose fat and gain muscle. In order for you to lose more weight you ought to start reducing your intake of fast foods and food prepared with too much fat. The moment you remove such foods from your diet you must replace them with vegetables, specifically negative calorie foods such as lemons and grapefruits.

Now, the most important part. With all the fat eliminated the next step is to start muscle building exercises. Build your endurance slowly by jogging and cycling every day. This sort of exercising prepares you for when you intend to step up a gear or two further in your exercises. In addition to this it also builds up muscle steadily.

It is at this stage that you must add one more thing: muscle building. Start lifting weights gradually by lifting weights you can handle. Lift weights for as long as 30 minutes every day and on top of that do sit ups, press ups and leg ups. With time you should be able to look at yourself in the mirror without being tempted to smash it.

Lose fat, gain muscle – it’s not as hard as you think!
