Eat more protein, less carbohydrates and saturated fat
This is a sure way of losing weight and at the same time, keeping and/or building muscles. See your plate as a pie chart and make sure 50% is protein (meats, fish, eggs) and no more than 50% carbohydrates (pasta, potatoes, rice, bread). Another great way of losing weight and building muscle is to replace one meal a day with a high grade protein like LA Whey Gold or for more weight loss, Diet Whey.

Build muscles to lose fat
A secret that not many people know about is that the more lean muscles you have, the more fat you will burn. This principle is referred to as number of things such as Body Mass Index, lean mass, muscle to fat ratio and so on. The basic principle is that when you have more muscles, your body burns a lot more fat whilst it is resting. This is the reason why more muscular people tend to generally have lower body fat levels. You can achieve a more muscular body which will in turn burn more fat by taking one of LA Muscle’s top-selling and highly effective natural muscle builders such as Norateen Heavyweight II.
You can also use Sculpt to build & preserve muscles as well as lose weight. Sculpt does both at the same time.
More tips and secrets
- Drink plenty of water.
- Lose the scales! Make the mirror or your belt the gauge for how you are doing. The scales can be deceptive. If you lose weight but build muscle, you can look great but still weight the same on the scales, so don’t go on what the scales say.
- Make lifestyle changes such as use stairs instead of lifts or walk to work rather than driving.
- Keep going. Fat takes months or years to build up – it won’t disappear overnight.
