How to lose a lot of weight (belly fat). Eat very healthy at the same time and ride lifecycle till summer?

YEP!: Losing weight is simple math. If you burn more calories than you ingest, you will loss weight. A two pronged attack, involving eating less calories and exercising more, is most effective.

What kinds of food shall i eat to lose weight and gain muscles at the same time??

To be honest: No particular food or diet will lead to weight loss and increased muscle mass alone. In fact, it's clear that certain people respond better to different macronutrients(like proteins, fats and carbohydrates.) It's difficult to say what type of diet you'll respond best too. It's hard to go wrong with a diet rich in colorful veggies and fruits with some lean meats. ...Read more
