How can I lose weight without sacrificing muscle mass or strength?

How can I lose weight without sacrificing muscle mass or strength?
Im 5ft and 10 in and weight around 220. I want to lose atleast 35-40 lbs of pure body fat. But I’ve heard that when you lose weight you also lose muscle mass and strength? Is this true? So how can I prevent myself from losing the mass of my muscle and strength while losing the fat. Any diets could help

    Type O is the oldest; Type A evolved with the agrarian society; Type B
    emerged as humans migrated north into colder, harsher territories; and Type AB was a
    thoroughly modern adaptation, a result of the intermingling of disparate groups. This
    evolutionary story relates directly to the dietary needs of each blood type today.

  4. To lose weight (fat), include more fibrous slow digesting carbs, as opp. to the fast digesting ones.

    No white breads, fast foods, sodas (not even diet) no ketchups, sugar, only skim milk, not 2%, skim and whole grain non sweet (sugary) cereal, whole wheat bread, maybe buy some soy or whey protein.

    Include lean meats like ham, and other sources of protein. Avoid red meats. Take a multivitamin, calcium and vitamin d every 2 days, one or two V8s a day (or every other day).

    Don’t starve, eat small healthy meals. A lot of small meals opposed to a few bigger ones– make sure is has at least 8-10 or more g of protein, not too much protein because the body can only digest a certain amount at a time; and avoid too many fruits, carbs and sugars. Fibrous veggies, greens (no starches or potatoes) are good, and no BBQ sauce (unless used sparingly) and not too much (if any) salad dressing.

    Before bed (2 hrs), eat something with protein, don’t
    eat many carbs before bed. Eat some of that good cereal in the morning, you need quality carbs, just not too much, and the slow digesting ones.

    Do slow crunches until you can not do anymore, jog stairs (be safe though), warm up first and do sprints, short bursts of intense activity is very effective compared to long weak activity, just don’t over do it. Also include some slow but long endurance jogging. Be active!

    Jog stairs ;and also do some lunges until it burns, do this every day or 2 days, keep going and don’t give up, same with eating, you need some fat, so one or two fish oils daily.

    Eat fish (not fried, be careful, very careful for bones) Peanut butter on whole wheat (no jelly), which has protein, and don’t worry about the fat in that. Avocados, has fat, good fat; eat it when your hunger cravings get you.

    When you do crunches, also twist on some to work your sides, keep tension on your abs.
