Juices Count

It’s sometimes a fighting battle when it comes to this competition we call fat loss. Through the basics, we shed some body fat while building or retaining muscles, depending on where in the training hierarchy you fall. But one of the best ways to lose weight, is to count your calories. Knowing exactly how much calories one is consuming, helps to keep their weight loss program on track. But what about those juices? I have seen people drinking their juices in place of the sodas and as awesome as that is, I doubt they realize that that too, needs to be counted. Remember, the reason we count our calories is because we want our body’s metabolic activities to be fueled by the fat we already have stored in our body, rather than using acquired energy from outside sources (e.g food), so counting helps keep this fat loss mechanism on a continued flow. This is also why some people prefer doing a low carbohydrate diet because this encourages even more fat loss because your body’s number one choice for fuel, is carbohydrates. But that’s not the topic of this entry 😛 I know some of you who are reading this, are like “duh”, of course you have to count your juices but then there are some who are still in the dark about this. So keep reading if you already don’t count your juices and to learn why, it’s important to start doing so immediately. Remember knowing is power, from this[…]

How to eat while bulking

One of the hardest things to do, for many interested in gaining muscle mass, is eating. They tell you this time and time again that the only way to gain muscle, is to eat in excess. We already went through how much you’re suppose to eat over and that’s just the easy part. Once you’re at least consuming 500 calories over your maintenance, you will gain muscle mass. Of course you have to consume your 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, and 2 to 2.5 grams of carbohydrates per pound of body weight. But you already knew this, right? 🙂 If you want to learn how to eat to bulk, I suggest you keep reading.

Diet Plan Choices

There are so many diet plan choices out there from the Atkins diet, the Dukan diet, the south beach diet, that it can become extremely overwhelming on deciding which one would work for you. Not only that but sometimes the information itself is so confusing, that you become lost in the whole concept behind the reason you’re on it in the first place! Am I suppose to eat 3 meals a day, 2 meals a day, what carbs am I suppose to eat and not eat, along with timing of these carbs sometimes! All of these things can frustrate the lay person, looking to shed some weight and trying to get their nutrition in check.

Carb Cycling Continued

I know I spoke on carb cycling on my last entry but there is more about it that I want to share with you, my readers. Firstly, there are 3 types of carb cycling; low days, high days and no carb days. It all depends on what your personal goals are, and what your body types are. Scheduling a carb cycling, is based on your own personal goals; whether you want to gain weight or lose weight. The awesome thing about carb cycling is that even when on a bulk, you can assist your body in not gaining too much body fat overall, as opposite to the regular eating a certain amount of grams of carbs per day, no matter what. Although there are different types of carb cycling days, you don’t have to use all. Some diets out there, recommend you have an equal amount of each type in your diet, while others have it where you can have high carb days and low carb days. Not only that but you have those that have high carb days, low carb days and moderate carb days.
