Is it possible to over weightrain and damage your muscles. What is the ideal times per week that you should weight train.
Is there any food or supplements to take to nourish muscles after weight training.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is not advised to overstrain or go to extreme measures to lose weight. Losing weight slowly and steadily is what is advised. Consider taking help of professional trainer to help you with exercises and weight training. Visit a dietician/nutritionist for further help with charting out diet as required by your body for weight loss and during weight training. Take rest for a few days and avoid any activity that aggravates your symptoms. Maintain healthy diet. Drink plenty of water.
Take care.
