Weight training and weight lifting in particular increases the metabolism in a significant manner, even much after performance of the activity.

Burning of fat and caloric continue much after your visit to the gym. Weight training involves all the areas, namely, biceps, arms, back, legs, shoulders, forearms, hamstrings and calves. With a fat loss diet, it proves beneficial. Avoid saturated fats and Trans fats. Fried foods and other junk foods are avoided. Drink adequate amount of water for flushing off the toxins and to combat dehydration.

Enhancing the muscle, automatically puts down the level of fat. Even the resting metabolism or the amount of fat and calories burnt at rest is high when the amount of muscles is high.
