Let’s start by considering the body as a store of energy. The body can be divided into two components. One is fat mass, and the rest of the body is called fat-free mass. It’s mostly water, but there’s also bone and muscle protein. Fat contains much more energy (and thus requires more energy to burn). Like most of the adult population, Liz wants to lose weight.

It takes a much bigger energy deficit to lose a kilogram of fat than a kilogram of … [Read more...] about Go to the gym every day and still struggle to lose weight?

While they did lose some fat, it came from all over their bodies, not just the arms they'd worked. Real talk: You have very little control over where and how your body stores fat. And since women are … [Read more...] about A ‘Revenge Body’ Trainer Drops A Truth Bomb About What It Takes To Lose Arm Fat

You likely already know that genetics significantly influence who you are. They mold your unique qualities that ultimately determine your thoughts, behavioral patterns, and of course, appearance. However, can your genes also influence how quickly you lose muscle mass over time? They sure can.Although everyone gradually loses muscle with aging, some people are genetically predisposed to lose it faster and easier, and starting at an earlier age, explains Julie Chen, MD, chief clinical officer at Vitagene, a DNA-based health and wellness personalization platform.
