Now don’t break out the ice-cream just yet… A diet will help you lose fat and keep you healthy. The difference is that toning helps you burn fat and build muscle. These tone muscles are 18% more compact than fat tissue. The more muscle you have, the more lean you look because it takes up less space on your body.
If you practice strength training a few times a week you can benefit twice as much. Why? Muscle increases the activity of your metabolism, thus allowing you to continue burning fat around the clock.
