Yes, it is possible, and you can do so by following the following methods.

If you are not suffering from chronic diseases then you should try and follow nutritionist suggested diet plans to increase your body mass. Each training program has a specific diet plan attached to it, for gaining muscle, you would need to follow the diet plan that has more protein intake.

However, one thing to note here is that increased muscle count means more calorie intake. Therefore you should try and strike a balance between the protein and carb intake. Once you establish that you’ll be able to gain muscle and shred fat through the same training program.

A large number of training programs are available to gain muscle mass, however it is strongly recommended that relevant measurements and tests are conducted in order to choose the right training program. One that would not only fit your needs but would also aid you in achieving the desired goals.

Each body is unique and has its own distinct requirements in terms of calorie count, in fact your work also plays a pivotal role in determining the required calorie count.

Once the calorie count has been measured only then the nutritionist can set a diet plan which would include the intake of carbs, healthy fats, proteins alongside mineral salts and fiber. In other articles we have provided a complete layout of these diet plans.

(Kindly note that there is no fixed training or diet plan for all people)

People suffering from chronic diseases must follow a specially designed diet and training program, one that helps them cater their distinct individual needs.

The question actually means that fewer calories are consumed than the original body requirements, so does this mean that you have a problem with your metabolic rate ?

To answer this question however, we first need to know what actually is the metabolic rate? and how it is measured through the InBody.

So the InBody measures the metabolic rate by sending electric pulses through the body, these pulses measure the current percentage of water in each cell, on the basis of this collected data, a reading is displayed. So what does an individual do if he knows that the burn rate is slower than average.

So, before we jump into those details, the first thing to know is that that the fat mass of the body does not consume energy, it is in fact the muscle mass of the body which uses energy. So from this we can deduce that more the muscle mass of the body, more calories would it consume.

On the contrary the greater the fat mass on the body, less calories would be needed as the cells are weak and hence the body too would consequently seek less energy. So if you have high fat mass you must try to lower your fat mass by increasing your muscle mass.

This would not only aid you in shedding fat but would further assist you in optimizing your calorie burning rate.

It is a unit for measuring energy gained form food. Scientifically speaking it is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius at the regular air pressure. All food items contain calories, and we have explained them in other articles.

Human body absorbs calories and converts them into energy through metabolism. For mindful eating is important to know how to calculate calories required by human body.

Men Women
Basal metabolic rate (BMR) = 1*weight(kg)*24

Calorie burned during daily activities = BMR*Lean factor*activity level

Lean Factor equations:

Fat percentage (10 – 14)  *1

Fat % (15-20)  *0.95

Fat % (21-28). *0.9

Fat % (+28). *0.85


Basal metabolic rate (BMR) = 0.9*weight(kg)*24

Calorie burned during daily activities = BMR*Lean factor*activity level

Lean Factor equations:

Fat percentage (14 – 18)  *1

Fat % (18-28)  *0.95

Fat % (29-38)  *0.9

Fat % (+38)  *0.85


Daily Activity

very light activity  *1.3

light activity  *1.55

moderate activity  *1.56

heavy activity  *1.8

very heavy activity  *2

It is not possible to reduce fat from a specific area of body without impacting other parts of the body. Each person fat accumulation sites vary as it is directly related to genes, some might have belly fats, where others might have chubby face and arms, so it varies from person to person.

However, muscles weaken with the accumulation of fat, therefore increasing the muscle strength of that particular area would result in fat loss.

So, that means I can lose weight by only doing cardio?

So, before we get into other details, let’s see what cardio really means, word ‘Cardio’ in Latin is used for circulatory and respiratory system. Heart is the central organ of the body and it has many functionalities.

It is not only the integral part of circulatory system but it is also responsible for other vital actions in human body.

Oxygen comes to the lungs and then from there is distributed to the other parts of the body accordingly.

Hence, a relationship is clearly seen between weight and cardio. The intensity of cardio exercises varies depending on the goal and individual health.
