048: How to Protect Your Muscle Mass When Losing Weight

Chris Masterjohn Lite Episode 48


When you want to lose weight, you really want to lose fat, right? You’re not trying to turn into a wimpy twig with no muscle mass, are you?

If so, it’s important to design your weight loss strategy in a way that protects your muscle mass. If you don’t, your weight loss could be as much as half lean mass, and that’s not what you want.

The two most important strategies are the right type of exercise program and consuming enough protein. Avoiding weight loss that’s too rapid is another strategy that can help. In this episode, I provide the details about how to implement these strategies in the right way.
