A few misconceptions I want to go over… You can not lose weight and tone at the same time. It is impossible. Everyone’s point of view on toning is different. I simply do not like that word tone.[fitness_blockquote align=”right”]you must eat on a caloric surplus and lift weights.[/fitness_blockquote]When you get down to a low enough body fat, then you can focus on “toning” aka building muscle. In order to do this, you must eat on a caloric surplus and lift weights. Ladies, let’s make this clear… lifting weights will not make you look like a man!
Gaining muscle weight is a completely different mind set from weight loss because you have to eat A LOT! You can not build muscle if you do not eat on a calorie surplus. To gain 1lb a week, one must eat 3500 calories above their maintenance. Any weight gain during muscle building stage that is more than 1lb a week comes with fat. So it is crucial to adjust accordingly if you are gaining more than 1lb a week. Sometimes carbs do play a role at weight gain because of the water it carries so it takes at least 3 weeks to settle before actually knowing your actual weight. This happens to some people, not all. Everyone has different bodies.
