Question on Strength Training

The weight loss clinic I attend only wants me to perform cardio. They say I am to perform absolutely no strength training or anything having to do with weights. However, I have been doing a little strength training on the side . I asked them is it because strength training may slow my weight loss and they told me "yes". But, I thought muscle helps speed your metabolism, thus, helps to burn more fat? Can anyone shed light on this?

Re: Question on Strength Training

That is very strange. My trainer has me balance strength and cardio. I am a 47 year old female and I don't mind having some muscle, I have noticed since I gained some, it is easier to keep the weight off. (just as important as losing it in my opinon)

I also have some guy friends who are very heavy in to weight training and they can eat 4500 calories a day and lose weight.

Re: Question on Strength Training

Shucky,

You are getting some mighty WEIRD info from that clinic.
Any nutritionist who says weight training is detrimental to weight loss and overall health is really in the wrong business.
