Losing weight is diet, building muscle and toning is thru working out with weights, the more muscle you build you will burn calories faster so they both go hand in hand.

Eliminate processed foods and all things white to kick start your weight loss, eat 'real' foods with lots of nutritional value and you'll have a good start on your journey.

I also have mid-section change. From my research and knowledge, this could be attributed to how the body distributes carbs. Follow a reduced carb and follow mummydee's recommendations as well. don't drop the exercise.

Read up on visceral fat (belly fat especially) and cortisol and get informed on the newer studies re these topics.

Keep doing your workout programs, I particulary like pilates for core strengthening and tightening all those muscles. The more muscle you have the more efficient a fat burning body you'll create.

Post your food in the journal and have a look at what you're consuming to see the breakdown and then make adjustments according to what you learn.

Do you have any links to these studies or are you just making stuff up.

I do my own research online and have been reading up and studying nutrition , diets and natural health for over 40 years now.

I don't make stuff up but I do my own research and if someone mentions a study I go looking for my own links. Sometimes it can take hours of reading and then I move on to the next. No i'm not one to save the links, i'm not that anal. I read and learn and then read some more.

If the op wants to throw my comments out so be it, if she wants to search for herself and make up her own mind, great. Thats what this site for the general public is about.

I receive newsletters via email from the American Medical Association, the Harvard Medical society and Natural News and many more every day. They quite often have links to the studies that I then follow up on those.

So to answer your condescending question, no I don't and no I don't.

You are welcome and I don't know how to retrieve added foods. You can ask fat secret, it's on the bottom of the page, contact. They will send you an email in a day with the answer.
