- Build lean muscle mass – Even for women, it’s crucial that you build lean muscle mass for two reasons. Lean muscles are far more dense than fat and take muscle less space in your body, so you will naturally achieve slim down. The other reason is that lean muscles are active fibers that take more energy just to sustain than fat.
