Tip #4 on how to fit into your swimsuit: Cardio, cardio, cardio!  Why waste time devoting yourself entirely to weight training when first you need to melt off the fat?!  If you choose to rarely do cardio and focus primarily on weight training (before you're at a healthy weight) muscle is going to build on top of fat.  Yes, muscle does burn fat, but not enough.  Aerobics increase your heartrate to a higher intensity, therefore, increasing your metabolism.  At a 2003 conference, the American College for Sport Medicine reported their findings regarding exercise and weight loss.  They found that their is no direct correlation between weight training and weight loss.  In fact, when you're building muscle you need more calories.  Weight training is great for healthier, stonger, more toned you, but, there was no significant evidence of weight loss for this type of workout.  If you are interested in reading more go to MSN health and fitness expert.
