Burn Fat, Add Muscle By Eating More Protein

lose fat, build muscle
Protein supports your
muscle building ambition
There's a simple but powerful correlation between burning fat and gaining muscles (or keeping the ones you already have). Memorize this simple rule: Your body burns 50 calories of fat for every 500 gms of lean muscle you gain.

What does this mean for bodybuilding? It means that the very "process" of gaining muscle burns calories.

This is good news because with over 600 muscles in the human body, you are more than equipped to get the dual benefits of losing unwanted weight and gaining muscular bulk.

Now, let's take it a step further and bring proteins into the picture.

When you eat more proteins your body gets the vital nutrients required to repair muscles and damaged tissues. When you support your weight training exercises with the right amount of protein (1 gm per lb of body weight), your body gains more muscle. In turn, this improves your body's fat burning capability, resulting in weight loss because muscle is an active tissue.

The key here is to eat foods that are high in protein but low in fat. The recommended foods that help include chicken, turkey, salmon and lean beef. Avoid nuts (or eat them in lesser quantities) since they contain more fat.

Hormone regulation takes the benefits of dietary protein one step further and helps burn fat, improve vitality by supplementing on testosterone-boosting amino acids. This is one of the most important physiological advantages of bodybuilding enhancement, and is of value to amateurs and pros alike.
