strong women lift and carry men and girl :

Myth number 2) To lose weight, I need to do lots of cardio.
Imagine a glass. In your mind fill this glass with three parts water and one part olive oil. As you know, water and oil don't readily mix so the oil will float on top of the water. This glass represents your total body weight; the water represents your lean tissue (muscle, bones and internal organs) and the oil representing your body fat. Most exercisers are only concerned with what they weigh, not what that weight is made up of (correctly termed body composition).

Using our glass analogy it would be easy to pour off either liquid and reduce the contents of the glass, however, the reality is we want to keep the water (lean body tissue) and ditch the oil (fat). Getting rid of muscle and keeping fat is just pure madness, but with someone who exclusively uses cardio exercise for weight management, that's exactly what they're doing...
