I don't know if you're looking for a precise answer numbers or what, but the bottom line is that the more muscle you build, the more your metabolism will speed up. A tiny amount of muscle built will speed up your metabolism a little bit, a lot of muscle will speed up your metabolism a lot more. Pretty simple

I have Seen on weight loss sites/forums talking about incuding weight lifting into there traning because the muscle will help them loes weight.

yo bump- from what i read, every pound of muscle you add you can expect to burn 30-50 cals/day to maintain that muscle. for example if you add 10 lbs of muscle, that's an extra 3-500 cals a day your body is burning to maintain itself- close to 1lb/wk

I've heard this also.. I watched Biggest Loser (LOL I KNOW)... They said every lb. of muscle is an extra 50 cals. burnt a day.
