Hope this helps
Weight training is great because it strengthens the muscles and helps retain muscle. However, if you are only eating like 1200-1600 calories a day its highly unlikely you'll build muscle.
And with protein, its recomended to build muscle you need 1 gram of protein for every pound you weigh. This is alllllloooootttt of canned tuna peoples!
