I’ve always treated cardio/running like **the thing you do to lose weight**, but recently I’ve had friends try 50/50 cardio and weights. In your experience, can this be more effective than cardio only? And, should I have a small carb before the workout or rely on fats or proteins only?

Basically the more muscle you have the more energy (calories) it takes to maintain. But you diet has to be on spot.

I’m pretty consistent on the carbs and protein measurement, but the fat is so hard to wrap my brain around!!

How would weight training not play a significant part of fat loss. Yes I know that diet is number one. Bit a person who lifts weight and tears the muscle tissue then recovers and in a since make more muscle. More mulsce then leads to the body burning more calories at rest.

I never take any extra carbs, regardless of whether I’m working out or not. Cardio is fine, weights are fine, neither are particularly effective for fat loss. Diet controls hormones, which control fat gain/loss/storage, etc.

Weights give your body shape and definition. Cardio can indeed help you lose weight, but weights are really valuable. Besides, the metabolic effects of lifting are more prolonged than with cardio. Carbs are never necessary. If you’re trying to become fat fuelled, why add sugar?
