Hello everyone, I have been on a weight loss journey for the last six months, and while I have seen some progress, it has been a slow process. I have been wondering if the amount of muscle mass I have or my bodyweight could be affecting how quickly I achieve my weight loss or fitness goals. I am a 30-year-old female, weighing 200 pounds and height of 5'6. I have been following a healthy diet plan and doing cardio exercises four times a week. However, recently I have heard that people with more muscle mass tend to lose weight faster. Is it true? And if so, what can I do to build some muscle mass and speed up my weight loss progress? Any advice or personal experience would be helpful. Thank you.
