Will weight training hinder my fat loss?

Ive lost 30 lbs and have got 20 lbs before I reach my ideal weight. If I start an intense weight training regimen, eat a lot, and take creatine, I know I will gain weight. But in the process of bulking up, will I lose fat or will my weight loss so fae go down the drain?

    You will lose fat, but the scales might show you are not losing weight because muscle weighs more than fat. Do the weight training!

    Ask a trainer.

    Eat only when hungry and not more than thrice a day. Nothing other than water in between. Include plenty of uncooked vegetables and fruits in each meal, preferably 50%. Chew each morsel at least 32 times to activate ur body to generate signals of hunger/fullness. Obey these signals.

    Take light exercises and brisk walks regularly preferably twice a day.

    U will achieve what u have not even dreamt and that too in a reasonable time. Do not be in a hurry.

    It will accelerate your fat loss and here is why:

    1. Maintaining extra muscle mass burns extra calories 24 hours per day.

    2. Protein synthesis for muscle growth requires extra calories (which is often taken out of fat stores). This is why lean people have to take in extra calories (in addition to protein) in order to build muscle.

    3. When the body is in a caloric deficit (required for fat loss), it can burn either fat or muscle to satisfy the deficit. If there is a stimulus that is telling the body to add muscle (weight lifting), then the body will be more selective in burning fat to satisfy the deficit.

    The first poster is right. Ignore the scale and get a measuring tape. None of your clothing sizes are listed in lbs.

    Here is a chart showing the actions needed for fat loss:

    You will loose fat, by doing your workouts and everything you are going to build up muscle ( good muscle ) muscle weighs heavier than actual fat, if you have allot of muscle you are going to be a very healthy guy by trying to bulk up it will not have any effects on your weight loss.

    its the best i could find and smilier to your question it proves that lifting weights/doing workouts will not make you gain fat at all.
    I hope this helps x

    You will contine to lose fat, although you might gain weight through muscle mass. As I’m sur eyou’re aware, muscle is much more dense than fat and weights more. So if you lose fat, but add muscle your overall weight will increase. However, your bodyfat will decrease. If your goal is to lose fat, stick to the cardio and weight training, but be aware, you may gain weight! But this isn’t a bad thing, it means your muscles are bulking up.
