In brief: Exercise & Nutrition

Exercise, especially resistance training, will help you gain muscle and burn body fat.
If you have not exercised recently, make sure you start slowly to avoid injury. Along with this you should maintain a high-protein diet which is low in starches and sugars. This will provide the building blocks for new muscle while forcing your body to burn body fat for energy.
