Is it pointless to lift weights if my goal is to lose fat?

I have heard that it is impossible to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time. Is this true?

    no. weight training converts fat to muscle.

    stay away from pills… you don’t need any of that stuff to lose fat. to lose fat fastest you really need to incorporate some strength training with cardio. you won’t get “huge” or “bulky” but you will gain some muscle and the more muscle you have the more calories you burn while resting. i’d check out stew smith has some great articles on fitness for military and civilian.

    Weight training Cannot convert fat to muscle because they are made of completely different components. however, when you add more muscle mass to your body, you are able to burn more calories. Muscle is much more active than fat so the more you have, the calories you burn and the higher your metabolism is.
    Strength training is an important part of any weight loss plan, along with cardio.
    It is not impossible to lose fat and gain muscle. Good luck.

    You should first do strength training (your muscles) for about 40 minutes and then hit the cardio for about 40 minutes so you can burn the fat off the muscles so that they show! :))) It’s not the point to just burn fat and have no muscle you will look soggy!

    Not true at all 🙂 When you’re exercising, in any shape or form, you are using up your energy stores- which means if your calorie intake level is reasonable, and you’re using up excess calories, you will lose fat. At the same time, when you’re body undergoes the “stress” of exercising, your body works to build muscle cells to better help it cope with the stress, which means you’re building up those muscles! That’s a good thing too, because muscles use more calories to work than fat does.

    That’s not true. Go on a low fat diet, as well as lift weights, and you will lose fat and gain muscle, which burns fat. Hope I helped!

    If you don’t life weights and you keep doing cardio, you will still have the exact same body except thinner. If you want to look more toned and sexy, you need to lift weights. Studies have already shown that having more muscle mass increases your metabolism. Therefore you want to build muscle to aid your fat loss.

    My spouse and i got really relieved when Jordan could complete his research with the ideas he had when using the web page. It’s not at all simplistic just to continually be handing out secrets and techniques which the others may have been trying to sell. And now we consider we have the website owner to be grateful to for this. The explanations you made, the easy blog menu, the relationships you give support to instill – it is most spectacular, and it’s assisting our son in addition to us imagine that the concept is cool, which is tremendously fundamental. Many thanks for the whole thing!
