Topic: losing weight without gaining muscle?
April 24, 2019 / By Carlisa Question:
I need to reduce my actual weight so I can get a job exercising racehorses, so I need ways to lose weight without gaining muscle (i.e. I don't want to replace fat with muscle, I just need to weigh less)
currently I am trying to eat healthy and consume less than 1600 calories a day and I try to walk for an hour a day 5 days per week. has anyone got any tips for me? so far I have lost 1 stone or 14lbs. I need to lose another 2-3 stone or approx. 40lbs. Thanks!

Want to slim down fast for that beach vacation or high school reunion? While there are many things you can do to shed pounds, losing weight too quickly, like any sudden change to your body, can be dangerous. While fad diets, diet pills, and fasting may indeed induce rapid weight loss, these methods can cause you to lose muscle and may also injure your heart and other organs fairly quickly. The best solution? Don't go for an overnight miracle. Instead, follow these steps to lose fat rapidly, healthily, and sustainably.
Gaining weight takes the same amount of focus and preparation as losing weight. Some important facts about gaining weight:
* You can't necessarily gain muscle without gaining some fat as well.
* There are no magic foods, powders or pills that will allow you to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. Some people can do this naturally (again, the genes), but most will gain some fat along with the muscle
* Your body is very different from a bodybuilder--trying to gain mass to look like them is not the best idea. They have different muscle fibers than you and some may even be getting a little help from illegal substances.
* If you're a teenager, you'll have a hard time changing your body dramatically. It's changing constantly and it will change even more as the years pass.
* Gaining weight requires eating more and lifting more. Sounds simple, right?

One thing you need to know: It's hard to be specific on exercises and diet tips because everybody is so different. For the most specific advice, consult your doctor. Otherwise try these:
-Eat healthier, and try drinking only water. I heard a story of someone who cut out soda and walked several miles a day, and they dropped weight like that!
-Get a good combo of strength, stamina/endurance/aerobic exercise. Find an aerobic exercise that you don't mind doing, and do it regularly. Try getting a work out trainer app for your phone or getting a personal trainer at the gym to help you on more specific exercises.
Also, don't focus on losing thigh and belly fat. When you exercise, your body takes fat away from areas that it chooses or that it can take away from... in other words, you don't get to choose where the fat will come off of. Try doing some strength-building exercises to tone the muscles in those areas. That should help.

Tips? Keep up what you're doing. You're eating a healthy amount of calories and the exercise is also helping.
