I was just looking over my info I've been tracking since I started on this weight loss journey. I've lost 19.5 pounds; however, I see 13.5 of that was fat and 6 was muscle. I don't want to lose fat and muscle and end up being slimmer on the scale but looking the same - fat.
Does anyone have advice on losing the fat and maintaining (or building) muscle? I do cardio 4 to 5 times a week for about an hour and weights two times a week. A trainer told me that because I exercise at a high intensity (about 90%) I need to cut my cardio down to about 15-30 minutes because after that it starts to burn glycogen (which leads to loss of muscle) OR I need to work out at a lower intensity. Anyone know anything about that?
