weight lifting makes you gain muscles and loose only a little bit fat, so you gain weight. You should do cardio to loose weight.

sounds like a plan working on fast food restaurant so the hardest part will be stop eating unhealthy food, but i will try my hardest to go for the healthy choices , im also used to only eating 2 big meals twice a day instead of 5 small meals so i will have to work extra hard on getting used to that change

I am with John balance your cardio and weight lifting, yes weight lifting can add muscle..BUT your body continues to burn calories long after you set the weights down and it boosts your metabolism and that muscle you build is replacing the fat....after about a,year of cardio I added weights to my workout plan and I have lost even more weight by incorporating resistance. Just take it slow, add cardio, and eat small healthy meals throughout the day

Weight lifting has a high after burn effect if u use ur full energy while working out u can keep burning fat for 48hrs after working out
