To lose fat and gain muscle, I do crossfit training and 1/3 of my calories come from carb, 1/3 protein, 1/3 fat. Right nutrient balance?

Zone diet : If you're trying to lose weight and improve your muscle tone i suggest trying zone type diet which includes 40% carbohydrates 40% lean protein and 40% healthy fish or plant-based fat. This is closer to the paleo diet that crossfit suggests except on the paleo diets you're not allowed to have any dairy or starch. ...Read more

Is - burning fat, burning calories and losing weight, all same ? Or different ? How?

Similar : Losing weight involves fat burning, as well as other fuels as part of metabolic processes known as anabolism, that builds muscle, bone, blood cells, nervous tissue, etc., and catabolism, that breaks down and regenerates body tissues.

Im veg. Goal=weightloss,musclegain. I Lift weights.I use whey protein supplements 1gm/kg body weight.They hv artificial sweeteners & cholesterol.Safe?

Probably safe but ..: What do you think you are gaining by eating supplements and pills and powders. Why don't you just eat a good well rounded vegan diet and continue your exercise program. You cannot eat food and talk to it and direct it to your muscles. Your body will absorb what it does, then it goes to your liver where it is metabolized, then out to the rest of your body. ...Read more

Hello,does amino acids helps in burning fat and loosing weight.pleas help?

Hello,does amino acids helps in burning fat and loosing weight.pleas help?

No: We all take amino acids in our diet. Proteins are made of amino acids and proteins are present in grains, legumes, beans, nuts, milk etc. There is no substitute to reducing caloric intake and increasing physical activity. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Can the workout video insanity burn fat or just gain muscle?

I've recently introduced protein shake and phedra cut xt fat burners to my work out does this improve my weight loss progress?

Maybe: There is no foolproof way to increase weight loss - it is just plain hard work. However - some studies suggest exercising while fasted followed by a protein based drink within 30 min of exercise increases fat burning by increasing growth hormone levels. I believe hydroxycut xt contains green tea catechins. Some studies show these increase fat burning associated with exercise as well. ...Read more

Add cross training: high and low impact aerobics and remember that diet= what you eat, what you do and who you are.
