Muscle weight : Weight does matter, but losing fat rather than muscle matters the most. Simple caloric restriction leads to mixed loss of fat and muscle. But muscle sparing diets such as HCG or diets accompanied by muscle building exercises and your body type may be leading to increase your muscle mass. You may want to consider getting a certified trainer who can help you achieve your goals.
