To Sara of Fit by Sara: “I’ve just started working out again.  Is it possible to turn flab to muscle?”

From Sara of Fit by Sara: “Working out, particularly using your own body weight in classes such as yoga in combination with light weights will firm and tone your muscles, however “flab” doesn’t turn to muscle.  “Flab” is extra body fat which will decrease with an increase in cardio and healthy “lean” eating habits.  So even if you do body toning exercises and firm your muscles, you won’t see the muscle definition until you lose body fat.  Once you eat healthier and up your cardio your body fat will reduce and you’ll see the muscle tone.”
