I completely agree with this article from the Trainer's Edge.  Strong is very attractive and definitely does not mean masculine!

3. Weight Training Will aid Your New Muscle battle Obesity.

As you add muscle from strength training, your resting metabolic process will increase, and so you’ll burn off more calories all day long. For each gram or kilogram of muscle you gain, you’ll burn 35 to 50 more calories daily. So, for example, if you gain 2 kg of muscle and burn 40 extra calories for each kg, you’ll burn 120 more calories per day, or roughly 3,600 more calories per month. That equates to a loss of 10 kg in a year!

2. Myth:  It’s not a good idea to train on an empty stomach

The body burns calories even more when you are practicing before breakfast, then on an empty stomach, and this is confirmed by recent research. Regardless, the entry of water into the body can not be reduced.
