How to lose weight without losing my muscles?

I’m trying to lose weight, but I read that going on a crash diet will make my body burn my muscles in order to get energy. I’m also, at the same time, try to gain muscle.
What should I do to accomplish both goals?

    A sensible diet, along with weight lifting and cardio.

    Eat less carbs and fat – lots of lean protein and lots of aerobic exercise. like running 5 to 10 miles a day or 1 hour on aerobic machines like treadmill, bike or elliptical trainer.

    Obviously lifting will help you…

    Have you looked into the man’s diet? Its a high protein and fat low carb eating regimen, My BF is currently doing this with a few modifications and he has leaned out so much and his muscles and are big and just popping out, He looks good (obviously I am a little biased as to how good he looks but he really is getting lean and cut).

    well you can lose weight and maintain and gain a little muscle, but u can’t all lose fat and gain muscle at the same time, it’s cause the chemicals in our bodies that deal with fat are the same ones that deal with muscle. so u have to focus on the fat first. do cardio, mostly HIIT cardio(look it up, save times and the metabolism boost lasts longer than just jogging, its also more fun). Do the Hiit cardio every other day, it’s bad for ur body to do it twice in a row. But on those “off” days is the perfect time to do weight lifting, if u haven’t worked out seriously before or for a long time then you’ll gain muscle for the first month or so while losing weight too, but after that it stops and u can only focus on one, so once u pass that stage, if u just change up ur routine, like doing cycling classes at a gym instead of the running, and keep up the weight training, you’ll lose fat and maintain the muscle u gained from those first two months. go to shapefit.com for tons of info, and read this: http://www.rippednaturally.com/bodybuilding_cardiovascular_exercise_lose_fat_from_metabolism.html to understand some things a little more

    so every morning please break that fasting . PLUS my health teacher said if you do not eat in the morning , you gain more weight .
    for breakfast , have a all grain cereal a piece of fruit and a glass of milk .for lunch eat atat leastne piece o fruit and like a ham sandwich.
    for dinner have a piece of meat the size of your palm and veggies or whatever (im not pro)

    In modern high-tech today, when medical science was able to do much, there are a number of drugs to the surface here and there that claim to be “the answer” to the problem of weight loss. Most of that time as and quot me complementary and any complaint to be kept secret to help people lose weight fast and easy as possible. But do they work? Frankly, many people have had numerous bad experiences with supplements, and has resulted in several widespread horror stories cropping up against them. As such, supplements are now widely regarded as different from a lot of scams and deal with skepticism.

    Also for every horror story there are a number of incredible success. Some people have reported weight loss of persuasion when they take supplements of some, and it is amazing that people know if there is more to these supplements that skeptics think. To understand what supplements do, it is important that you understand how to work the most. Usually end most supplements to make one or more of the following:

    Help boost metabolism rates
    Aid in appetite control
    Assist the digestive system

    They do work if taken responsibly
