Slow lifting’s fans — and even some news reports — claim. “By the time you add three pounds of muscle, your body requires an extra 9,000 calories a month just to break even,” according to Newsweek. “Hold your diet steady and, presto, you’re vaporizing body fat.”
Yes, weight training. The most effective way to lose fat is to boost your metabolism, and the most effective way to do that is to add muscle to your body. Your body has to work harder to maintain muscle than it does to maintain fat, hence an elevated metabolism. This means you burn more calories all the time, not just when exercising.
