Diet for Building Muscles
Diet for Building Muscles. I recently read an article by T. Colin Campbell about the relationship between the diet and the training you provide. The major point T. Colin Campbell makes in this article is that while people are eating, the amount of muscle tissue they have is determined by the amount of calories they eat, not the workout they do. Muscle tissue is built in response to calorie intake. However, you can turn on the muscle tissue in many ways.
Your mind, your diet, and your emotional state can all be responsible for producing lean muscle tissue. If you eat right, you will produce lean muscle tissue. T. Colin Campbell states that it takes between 350 and 500 calories worth of protein to produce 1 pound of muscle tissue. The minimum intake of protein is 300 calories, but most people eat far more than that. It takes at least three times the amount of protein to produce 1 pound of fat tissue.
The point I am making is that you can not turn on the fat tissue in many ways. If you eat right and you think right, and your mind and your diet are in order, you will produce lean tissue.
When you lift weights you are burning calories. If you lift weights over a long period of time, then you are burning more calories during the session. While if you lift weights short bouts by moving and lifting fast, then you are burning more calories in the bout of intense movement. If you focus on the bout of intense movement, then you can save several hundred calories during that bout and still consume the same amount of calories as if you focus on the overreaching movement.
So the real question to ask yourself is, “Am I a fast-moving or slow-moving animal?” If you are a fast-moving animal, then you can use up to 500 calories of protein to create 1 pound of muscle tissue. The only exception to this is when you are doing a high number of repetitions of some movement, in which case you can use up to 1000 calories of protein to create 1 pound of muscle tissue.
A question I get all the time is, “how do I get rid of my love handles?” My answer is, exercise! There is a reason why you have fat in your midsection, and it’s not just because you don’t try hard enough. Your stomach muscles aren’t developed enough for that much fat. You need to use that fat in your body to do that. There is a way for you to get rid of that fat. It’s not fat removal, it’s fat reduction. The easiest way for you to reduce fat in your body is to decrease your body fat percentage, so you can burn that fat faster. The best way to do that is to cut your body weight by 30%.
I’m sure at some point you have read or heard of the concept of reducing body fat percentage. Now I’m not going to talk you through the science behind it, because that’s a whole different article. Instead I’m going to tell you the best way to go about it.
You need to start exercising! Now there are many different types of exercises that you can do, but the best and most effective exercise that reduces your body fat percentage the fastest is the squat. Now you can use many different squat variations like the lunge, the deadlift, the sumo deadlift, and many other squat variations, but the best and most effective one is the squat. There are many reasons for this, but one of them is that it is an isometric exercise which means that you hold a position for a certain period of time, which increases the rate of fat loss in your body. Also it doesn’t require much effort, so as you can see it’s easy to do, and it’s safe for your joints.
Now that you understand the concept behind reducing your body fat percentage the quickest way, you are ready to create your own fat loss program. The first step is to establish your target. The best target is your ideal weight. What is your ideal weight? What weight do you want to be when you are half way through your fat loss program? This is hard for some, because they can’t picture themselves getting that far. So, what is the best way to establish your target?
You have to begin eating less, so you can get to your target weight. This is the best way to start your fat loss program. This may seem difficult at first, but it’s not, you just have to start eating smaller meals more often. You can eat 5 meals a day, but once you get to your target weight, you should eat 3 big meals and 2 little meals. You should also supplement your meals with water, soy juice, and any other fluids that are recommended by your health care provider.
A lot of people make the mistake by going all out with the vegetables and then cutting back on the fat. It’s a very unhealthy way to eat, and it’s a huge part of why people gain fat. Try to be balanced with your fats and proteins and cut back on the calories with fruits and veggies.
