“The data is very strong that exercise is crucial to not only losing weight and preserving muscle mass, but keeping the weight off.”, increasing  lean body mass – muscles will help you to keep your metabolism buzzing, burning those unwanted bits of body fat.

Adding a few pound of lean tissue is done via resistance – weight training, body weight exercises e.g. Push-Up, Squats etc., you don’t necessarily need any fancy equipment, nor do you need to join a gym. You might get a few affordable, small pieces of fitness equipment e.g. a gym or Swiss ball, some weights, possibly a kettlebell, a Pilates or stretching mat and you are able to do lot of exercises at home, no need to commute, no expensive gym membership (which a lot of people don’t actually use).

“What people want is to lose weight and maintain or increase lean tissue mass,” Manore said. “There is no evidence that any one supplement does this. And some have side effects ranging from the unpleasant, such as bloating and gas, to very serious issues such as strokes and heart problems.”

You main goal should be to adapt a slightly different lifestyle, mainly focusing on
1. Whole Grains
2. Fruit
3. Vegetable
4. Lean Meats
5. Reducing your calorie intake of high-fat foods
6. Staying physically active
7. Possibly increasing your protein intake to maintain lean body tissue, muscle.

It is in a certain way rather simple, once you established new habits, routines and a regular program that is 1. realistic and 2. maintainable.
