Resistance training: In men and women, resistance training (lifting weights) will build muscles....More in men than women. Stronger muscles tend to burn more calories that weaker muscles even when you are not using them...That helps reduce fat. Lifting with proper form to the point of momentary failure seems to be the best way to get the muscles to respond.

Protein/resistance: Muscles need protein to grow, but the body needs fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals as essential nutrients. Don't overdo proteins because they break down into purines and too much can lead a build up of uric acid and a disease called gout. Healthy sources of protein are beans, nuts, and fish like wild salmon. Resistance and strength training build muscle as well. I don't advocate protein powder.
