I had a body analysis done last month.

So my question is, because I have a lot of muscle should I just focus on cardio? Or would it benefit me to still use weights? I want to lose fat and tone but how can I do that without using weights?

As I look at my info, I am over well over 100% in lean development in both arms and 93% in left leg and 94% in right leg

what am I to do with all of this? I know I need to lose fat obviously but I want to look more toned.. so is the key here just straight cardio and the rest will come?
you still need to work your muscles

because they still need to get worked to stay in shape

so what you could do, if its that much of a worry (and i dont think it should be, but he's the doc) is you can either increase reps, drop the weight, and decrease rest times.

alternatively you can do a full body routine twice a week, with cardio 4/5 days a week

however, as ive noticed (anecdotal of course) most people when they lose fat wish they stayed with the weights.. because weights generally prevent you from looking like a smaller you with out the 'tone'

but thats just me

one last thing, muscle uses up more calories than fat and increases your resting metabolism

the more muscle you have the quicker you lose weight

more muscle >> more fat is generally acceptable

I am learning a lot about my old eating habits since I decided to start a healthy life style. I thought I was doing something choosing clear Soda to drink I found out sprite has 64 grams of sugar that is stupid insane.I gave up soda about 6 weeks ago feeling good only drink water,green tea, and occasionally coffee now. I am so glad have started to try more fruits and vegetables. I just made a bomb salad mushrooms,cucumbers,tomatoes,spinach,egg, and chicken it was awesome.

Thanks!! I think I will stick with them but lower the weight a little bit and increase the reps.. I don't think it would hurt me and you're right. I still have to use them or I will lose some of it.

i cant remember who as asking about adding hip width

now whilst you cant grow hips, (purely dependant on pelvic girdle) you can create the illusion by working the outer quad sweep by doing dead lifts, front squats with a pronated stance as well as leg presses with a pronated stance

this engages the outer quad more
