Muscle Building: Why You Are Not Building Muscle

Muscle Building: Why You Are Not Building Muscle 💪

Building muscle is harder than most people think because you have to be committed to the lifestyle, you must know how your body works, what causes problem (such as inflammation) to your body, and having the knowledge to go about building muscle. There are two things that must be focused on; Workouts and Eating. If you are not working your muscles hard enough, you are not going to grow. You must go hard, really break those muscle fibers down! From there, Eating will help you recover and to grow; the Calories is important, also the nutrients you are consuming. If one of the other is off track, muscle building is going to be hard. You must be on your A-GAME!

In order to grow muscle,

 You must eat. Calories are important - lack of it will hinder your muscle building progress; the calories contain macro/micro nutrients, but we are focused on macros - Fats, Protein and Carbs. Those are vital for growth. Protein is obviously needed if you did not know that, carbs and fats, you get to decide on how much you should be consuming of. However, the lack of carbs or fats (and proteins) can hinder your progress, so this is when you have to 'know your body.' Everyone's different, so you must play around with the calories/macros. The easiest way to understand macro's and calories, is by using a Calorie/Macro App called, "MyFitnessPal." It will help you log your food intake, give you insight about the calories and macros. If you are underfed (under-calories), you are not 'growing' you need to be in a calorie surplus in order to grow. To find if you are being under fed, simply log your food intake to see. It's also logging your weight. Using a scale for about a week along with logging your food intake is a good way to accurately tell yourself how much calories you are eating on the daily. From this information you have gathered, you can adjust your lifestyle now; eating more, adding more food, etc.

As you read, nutrition, food/calories are vital for growth. If you are eating good enough, you should be building muscle. However, if your workouts are not intense enough for your muscles, you aren't going to grow with those foods you have been consuming because they have no where to go, in a sense because muscle fibers are not broken down, therefore, how can you 'get bigger?' Simply you cannot, you will just store the calories (possibly or burn it depending on your lifestyle) which will in return convert into Fat, which we do not want. So, the trick is, work your ass off! Work harder than last time.
 Simple but yet tedious because you have to stay on top of your game.

OMAD Conclusion (One Meal A Day)

My Conclusion on OMAD (One Meal A Day)@Delicatenutrition

Before I started OMAD, I had to think of why I was doing it. People saw benefits from eating once a day and I wanted to see results from it. OMAD is a 23:1 Ratio, meaning you only eat ONCE Per day. There's countless of benefits or reasons why people eat once a day. Some reasons are health benefits, eating restrictions, dieting, improving body fat burn (FAT LOSS) and much more. I wanted to perform OMAD to see if thus was true.

Being a wheelchair user is hard to go about losing weight because we are limited, meaning, it is harder for us to get some type of physical exercise in depending on your condition.

Personally, depending on your situation, that should not be an excuse to be overweight or underweight; You must be disciplined and committed if you are serious about losing weight and staying lean!

Duringmy childhood, I was kinda fat, I'd say. Everyone was grabbing my cheeks, just like you see it everywhere with babies (and kids with chubby cheeks 😋), I wasn't annoyed by it at all until I realized I am [overweight]. I saw that I had a fat pack under my chin/my neck area, my stomach was bulged out, and I knew my body was not liking it. I did not ca…

Good Calories Vs Bad Calories

Good CaloriesVsBad Calories 💣
If you're trying to focus on weight management, understand nutrition and what food contains what.
In this day in age, a lot of people are going out to grab a quick meal, no biggie right? But those meals may contain a lot of unnecessary calories - packed with [excess] carbs, sugar, sodium, and more. With all these excessive additives, you're in the danger zone to gain weight. The reason why people gain weight so easily is because they don't manage there intake of macro's. Fats, carbs, and protein. To much of Carbs throughout the day along with sugar will definitely make you fat as well as too much of fats - anything of too much will make you fat. Food isn't always to blame when you're gaining fat, you may have to blame yourself for it. People who doesn't exercise on the daily basis will be unhealthier than most people and probably will have more fat than others (since they're not active), eating [healthy] might make you fat to…
