Hello, this is my first post here. I just wanted to find out some info on the above question... I play soccer and must maintain good stamina. This comes from jogging about 5-7 miles 3 days a week. I am getting into building muscle and weight lifting and was wondering if these two activies are counter productive.

Will I lose muscle if I do too much cardio?

Ok, good information here. Since I started working out/ getting into shape for soccer a month ago, I have been eating lots of meats, carbs and protein. I also have cut out lots of fatty and high sugar foods. I also work part-time when not in school at a warehouse so I need to keep in shape.
I have been using whey/casein and creatine and have been noticing good results. 2 weeks ago I was curling 20's, today I brought it up to 35.

i do not understand why you jog all those miles all those days. At most you should do that once a week and even that migh be pushing it. Soccer you do travel many miles throughout the whole game. It is not like that though. You show me a soccer game where you jog slow for 7 miles. It does not work like that.
Soccer is a sport of speed endurance. You sprint hard, jog for a little bit then walk as the ball is away from you. In that time that the ball is away you need to revcover fast so you can get ready to sprint again. That is how you really should be training. If you train like that you will be using the muscle mass you work so hard to gain properly. You will also be much more prepared to play soccer.
