Best Answer

Other forms of exercise such as running, cycling and swimming are all good ways to help muscle growth as well as fitness. However, muscle development can only occur with a decent diet, and is helped a lot by eating foods with the right nutrients. Starving yourself will not help; the exercise just destroys muscle tissue and your body has nothing to repair and rebuild with. There are some other ways to increase muscle mass, but discuss it with your doctor if you want to know more about them.

This depends on the person and the kind of weight lifting you do. The short answer however is that lifting weights should help you to lose fat and gain muscle.
