Exercise: Exercising aerobically and anaerobically(weight resistance) you will lose fata and gain muscle. If you do not have a plan consult an exercise physiologist as they are experts in diet and exercise plans. My best.

Overtraining: We do see overtraining issues in executive athletes. As long as you have a progressive program of resistance exercise and cardiovascular exercise couple with good nutrition and adequate calories and good sleep this should not be an issue. You do not want to "burn all your body fat", in fact a healthy athletic body fat percentage is what you should strive for.
