What are some techniques for losing fat and gain muscle that have worked for you?

I noticed that if I keep a record of everything I eat each day, it seems to help me eat less and lose a bit of weight.

I still really would like to gain more muscle and lose about 10 pounds.

What are some tips/things that have actually worked for you? =)

    Well Sophia. Eat healthy. Boost your metabolism as much as you can. Eat fruits and greens and all that. Drink whole milk not Reduced Fat. Take vitamins.

    The vitamins part worked the most for me. B vitamins boost your metabolism to crazy levels. The best vitamins are all natural and water soluble. Your body absorbs natural vitamins better than artificial ones. Pills actually don’t do you very much good. Too compact, your body cant break it up. It goes through your digestive system before it can use them. Rule of thumb: if it is dissolves in a glass of water, it’ll do the trick.

    Keeping a food journal like you said is a very good tool. I’ve done that many times. Cut out sweets, seconds and junk including processed foods and things made from white flour. Use the whole grain version instead like whole wheat or multi-grain bread, whole wheat pasta (which I actually prefer), and brown rice. Drink only water. However, allow yourself one small cheat a week. This keeps you from feeling deprived and gives you something to look forward to the rest of the week.

    Try dividing your plate into quarters. First fill half with fruits and veggies, The other quarters are for the lean protein and whole grain carb. This will help limit your calories and ensure you get plenty of fruits and veggies.

    Cardio burns fat. Do moderate intensity cardio 3-5 times/week for 45-60 minutes. Also doing strength training 1-2 times/week will help build/tone muscle and raise metabolism. I’m a water fitness instructor and also enjoy doing Turbo Jam home videos on my off days to stay in shape. They are a great total body workout and a lot of fun. It’s kickboxing to workout music. Very energetic, but you can make it as low or high impact as you want just by how bouncy you are. You can get it from BeachBody.com
