No matter if you want to gain muscle or lose weight… we all have the tendency to put off dieting for the next week. It’s always: “I’ll start dieting on Monday.”
Why Monday… Why not now?
Waiting till Monday only puts off your progress and gives you the idea that it is ok to eat terrible for the days leading up to the start… no! My proposal is that you start your muscle building diet after you get through this… what’s holding you back from reaching your dream body?
To Look Like Superman (or Superwoman)…The Key To Building Muscle
Muscle is made of protein which is made of amino acids… for you to build muscle you have to feed it enough building blocks! FEED THE MUSCLE
3. Good Bye Processed Empty Calorie Foods, Hello Clean Eating… most food today is processed in some way but these foods often hold you back because of their “scientific ingredients” often promote fat storage and make it harder for you to keep fat off
Rule of thumb… if you can’t pronounce the ingredients then put it back on the shelf
Sure chocolate cake taste good but for all the calories you are taking in what nutritional benefits does it have? Not Many (if any) which is what makes it an empty calorie food… you are taking in plenty of calories but nothing healthy for the body!
4. Don’t Forget the Workouts! Of course you need a great workout program to actual promote muscle gain. I am not going to outline this but you can always check out http://www.theartofweightlifting.com for more on the subject to ensure you are making progress!
The Issue… Keep in mind that everyone is different in the way their body responds to diet and fitness, so there is no clear cut answer. It takes experimenting and playing around with the protein intake and carb intake to get it right for each person. But once you find out where your diet program is you will quickly see results and have a better understanding of your own body.
