If I gain muscle, will it build below my fat and make me look fatter or will it eat my fat?

Muscle is not fat: Muscle does not "eat" fat. Fat represents your body's energy stores, and if you are overweight it means you have too much energy stored up. The act of building muscle (ie. weight training) can help to utilize excess energy, but actually it is aerobic exercise (cardio) that requires more energy. If you work out regularly and diet, you'll hopefully build muscle AND lose the fat. ...Read more

What will drinking soy protein powder do to a young female?Will it mess up hormones since there's chemicals, or will it give me curves/help gain weight

What will drinking soy protein powder do to a young female?Will it mess up hormones since there's chemicals, or will it give me curves/help gain weight

Soy protein: Despite all the internet claims, is just protein which will be broken down in your GI system and metabolized for calories -- just like anything else you eat or drink. If you eat more calories than you burn off, you will gain weight, but you con't tell your body where to deposit the fat -- so the curves may not end up where you want them to be. ...Read more
