Muscle is your secret weapon in your war against fat. Muscle is your “metabolic furnace,” burning calories even as you sleep and watch TV. Muscle is active tissue – it is the catalyst for a fast metabolism. Fat just sits there idly in clumps on your body. Unfortunately, most people pay little attention to their amount of muscle because they’re too busy worshipping the almighty scale. This is a huge mistake! Most people are totally obsessed with scale weight. The problem with the scale is that it doesn’t tell you how much of your weight is fat and how much is muscle.

If you eat fewer calories than you burn, you will lose fat. Simple mathematics, right? Well, not exactly. If fat loss were as black and white as calories in vs. calories out, then how do you explain why some overweight people eat less than lean people, yet they still can’t lose an ounce? And how is it possible for someone with a 2200-calorie maintenance level to eat only 800 to 1000 calories a day without losing any weight? Using the strictly mathematical model, if you cut out 1000 calories per day from your maintenance level, that will add up to a 7000-calorie deficit in one week.

8. Make your goal to lose weight slowly at a rate of 1-2 lbs. per week. Be patient. The best way to lose fat permanently without muscle loss is to lose weight slowly with a focus on exercise rather than severe calorie cutting. In the chapter on goal setting, we already made the suggestion to lose no more than two pounds per week. Let’s take a closer look at the logic behind that recommendation. In the ACSM’s position statement on “Healthy and unhealthy weight loss programs,” The ACSM recommends losing weight at a maximum rate of two pounds per week.
