    Add 10 lbs of muscle to your frame and you will burn up to 3500 more calories per week which is the equivalent of 1 pound of fat. That doesnt include EPOC.

    So lift until you gain some muscle then begin to add in cardio. The most effective cardio is sprinting but you cant do that everyday and it could get boring so mix it up with various machines, going for walks, and pickup basketball games.

    Someone who is really obese may need to take a slightly different approach more along the lines of Opiv's post.

    Diet is really 50-80% of it though.
    That's definitely been the case for me.

    I enjoy jogging but it drives my appetite through the roof.

    I'm pretty lithe but when I want to lose weight, I absolutely have to quit exercising or I'm not capable of keeping my calories down.

    Haha thats not that unusual actually but usually its mental for people rather than physiological... I read an article once that basically said people dont make progress when they go to the gym because then they start to reward themselves for good behavior by eating more ****. What a species! lol

    Re: CAN YOU LOSE WEIGHT LIFTING WEIGHTS?

    My appetite goes though the roof when I lift weights, but not when I do more cardio-oriented workouts.

    I try hard not to respond with junk though. I go for low far protein shakes or egg whites.

    Every person is different, as the thread suggests.

    as far as the question posed by the OP, simply lifting Weights alone will not burn a significant amount of calories if your goal is to lose fat. However the more muscle mass you have, the more calories your body will burn to maintain that mass as long as you do the work to maintain it if that makes sense.

    personally I have always had a lot of muscle mass in my legs and chest. I'd do cleans, squats, dead lifts and bench regularly and still have baby fat. In my experience, the only way I have effectively burned fat is to do 30 to 45 minutes of consistently raised heart rate cardio, the bane of my existence.

    by far the most weight I ever lost, the quickest, was slow ass jogging for 45-60 minutes a day, while doing maintence lifting twice a week for about an hour a session. If you are running to burn calories, it's not how fast you go as I learned, just that you keepn your heart rate elevated for a minimum of 30 minutes. Pretty much anything less than that and you're just burning off blood sugar which will actually end up making you more hungry.
    Over thinking, over analyzing, separates the body from the mind.

    And as mouldsie said, diet is the majority of the deal when it comes to losing weight. Eat less calories than you burn you'll lose weight.

    If you are going the test route, Sustenon 250 is probably best. It's a combination of 4 testosterone esters, so you have two quick acting and two long acting so you only have to inject once a week during the cycle. It also stacks well with Dianabol.

    Be careful though, since it's the most popular test supplement, it's the most counterfeited.
