Lose Fat and still Build Muscle?
I'm glad someone made a thread about this, I had been thinking about this myself. I also try to mix cardio with strength training, and my train of thought was that if i'm working on my muscles, my weight loss will mainly be from fat and I'll retain a good amount of my muscle mass. Glad to hear that there is some validity to that theory.

My Terrible Sweet Tooth
i've found sweetness leads to more sweetness, at least in my case. when I have a diet soda, albeit 0 calories, it leaves me craving more sweets. When I eliminated diet soda from what I drink, I almost immediately stopped craving sweets. counting calories definitely helps a lot, too. when you can see how much you've consumed, it helps you restrict yourself from going overboard.

also, try to fill up on actual foods before you start craving the sweets.

it's all about getting into the habit.

burning calories
I haven't found anything negative said anything this site. typically people give wonderful advice. I like this site better than any of the other general health sites that don't really have user-input.

fat vs. carbs
I've been doing really well recently on keeping my carbs down (thanks to these new flatbreads I've found), and consequently, keeping my protein high. Today is great right now, with only about 20% carbs, but I noticed my fat was a bit higher than usual. How does fat play into the weight loss equation? what should I aim for?

I know that it's not necessarily "you eat fat, you gain fat," and that carbs are worse, but I'm not sure how it actually works. Anyone out there with the knowledge?
