Jean I had the question once too. That is why I knew what she was asking. But I couldn't remember the answer either.

Linda that [IS] what we were looking for. I kept looking and I could not find the answer. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I found this paragraph on a message board post from Coach Dean who was answering a question for another Spark Member. Looks like the answer is 25%. Is this what you were looking for??


Itís true that strength training and other exercise will minimize the loss of lean muscle and maximize the loss of body fat, when individuals restrict calorie intake moderately. The combination of moderate calorie restriction (enough to lose one half to 2 pounds per week, depending on your starting weight) and regular strength training can reduce lean muscle loss from 25% of total weight lost (normal, when exercise is not included) to 3-5%. However, this muscle protecting effect of exercise is mostly lost when calorie deficits become too extreme, because there are not enough resources available to support muscle recovery or, eventually, to fuel the necessary exercise activity.

I think what GIVEUP is saying...is...this is a Trivia Question here on Spark People....Period... What is the correct answer? Is it 5%, 15%, 25%, 35%, 45%, or 55% ??? One of these numbers is the only right answer. I don't think She is asking for opinions. Just a simple which number is the right answer.

Am I right GIVEUP?

You had asked whether dieting alone without exercise will cost muscle mass. If you lose very slowly, you will lose only fat, assuming you have fat to lose. I lost my weight back when no one discussed exercise as part of weight loss at all. The goal was to lose about 1-2 pounds a week, never more, sometimes less, and we did, and quite safely. If you not an exerciser, don't worry about the safety of weight loss. Just go slow, give yourself plenty of time, eat a balanced diet, and you will be fine.

If you lose weight very slowly, which is the Spark way to lose as well as WW, you will lose only the fat, not muscle. But if you exercise, you will not only prevent the normal muscle loss of aging, but you can add muscle. You don't convert fat into muscle, you lose the one and gain the other at the same time.

That is in addition to all the other benefits of exercise, of course. It's good for your heart, your mind, your endurance, your general well-being. It has been said that exercise is the one miracle "fountain of youth" readily available to everyone. Everyone tries to find a magic pill, but the magic happens when you walk quickly to the store every day carrying weights. You can credit the pill, but it's the walk that did it.

Diet alone won{t do it. You need to get active, if lifting weights or playing tennis is not for you, then consider aerobic walking, walking, swimming, bike riding, actively playing with small children (who will keep you running). In the warm months I like to kayak , canoe, swim, anyhting that keeps the weight down and my muscles (more of less) toned.

I personally like some form of exercise whether it be walking or just strength/flexibility as it makes me feel so much more better.

There is no one answer. Lots of people don't formally exercise but they are still very active with gardening (ever lift bags of mulch?) or home renovation or whatever. And as we age we lose some muscle mass no matter how much we exercise.

I wish there were a simple answer.
