Muscle burns 17 to 25 times more calories than fat does. For example, one pound of muscle burns about 35 to 50 calories per day. A pound of fat burns about 2 calories. One study looked at people who increased their muscle mass by just 3 pounds in 12 weeks. This gain in muscle allowed them to consume 15% more calories without gaining weight, and still lose about 4 pounds of fat!

You can try and boost your fat-burning capacity by incorporating strength training into your workout routine. About 10 minutes a day can show results in 8 weeks. Consult a physician before you begin a routine. You can also consult a trainer, read a book/magazine, or watch a video on how to perform exercises properly. A few pounds of muscle could mean a lot fewer pounds of fat!
