Muscles and Fitness. Burn that Fat.

Absolutely! The basic principle here is that, since muscle and lean mass (including bone) requires more energy to maintain than that of fat. Your bodies resting energy expenditure (calories) is going to be higher with greater lean mass.

The human body naturally burns more calories each day to maintain a kilo of muscle than it does to maintain a kilo of fat. Therefore, the more muscle you build and strength training, the more calories your body will naturally continue to burn each day at complete rest.

Which means, just by building muscle, you’ll significantly increase your metabolism. Turning your body into a calorie burning, fat melting machine… and this will obviously improve your overall fat loss progress.

Muscle and Fitness FACT One: 

Your body DOES burn more calories maintaining muscle than it does to maintain fat.

Muscle and Fitness FACT Two:

This means that YES, the more muscle you build, the more calories your body will naturally burn each day on its own.

Muscle and Fitness FACT Three:

Which means that building muscle DOES increase your metabolism.

Muscle and Fitness FACT Four:

In terms of numbers, this works out to about 13 calories per kilogram per day for muscle and 5 calories per kilogram per day for fat.

Muscle and Fitness FACT Five:

And this all means that building muscle definitely has the potential to help you lose fat.
