You can't gain muscles and loose weight at the same time. Thats right. But it is so misunderstood. Time is continuous. Your not always in a calorie deficit. Your are not always in a calorie surplus situation either. You do not eat 24-7. You do not exercise 24-7. Your body goes through all kind of phases. Over a longer time horizon, lets say a month, it is ...

Lift big to get big This goes for every muscle, biceps, quads, triceps, back, front, and side-to-side. Aim for 3-5 set of 8-12 reps at least twice a week, and try to increase the amount you lift consistently. Also, remember the biceps are responsible for more than just elbow flexion, but also for wrist supination. So I'd recommend doing dumbbells biceps ...

Your biceps are not going to grow if you're in a caloric deficit. You can only preserve the muscle you already have while your body sheds fat. Eventually your biceps will appear more toned as you lose fat and retain the muscle. If you want to grow your biceps, you'll need to stop cutting and go on a bulk. Eat at a caloric surplus and lift heavy and you'll ...

The body "selects" the substrate for fuel on the amount of time that it has to provide energy to sustain the exercise, and the amount of oxygen available to use in the conversion process. At lower intensities, fat (both stored and circulating ffa {free fatty acids}) is the preferred source, with carbohydrates in minimal proportions. As you get higher in ...

While it is not entirely true as it's not scientifically proven that you can not gain muscle and loose fat at the same time. It could be possible through proper planning and very intense diet regime. I personally managed to stay at 160 lbs while lowering my BF percentage to 8%. You just need proper planning and determination.

No. When you're in a calorie deficit, your body must burn fuel to make up for that deficit. That fuel can be muscle or fat. When you lift weights, you are signalling your body not to burn muscle, and to burn fat instead. Your body will not create new muscle in a deficit. That would simply be counterproductive, using up more calories and creating an even ...

One thing that I would like to add is not depending on only one source of protein , as over time your body will form allergies to it, not like you will start having stomach pain or anything like that , but you won't be getting the full benefit of it . From the diet you mentioned if seems to constitute only of chicken as protein source , so would advice to ...

Studies have consistently shown that when it comes to a nutrition plan (Note: I do not say diet. Diet implies a close ended, limited lifespan process), calorie restriction is king when it comes to weight loss. Don't buy into paleo, atkins, . Track all the food you eat for three days. Even if you eat a spoonful of peanut butter, write it down. Weigh and ...

Sadly, there are no exercises for skin tightening but you can use products such as coconut oil, aloe vera and other such topical products to regain elasticity in the epidermis. That being said, proper hydration, good eating habits in terms of nutrients and avoidance of direct sunlight will help to maintain your collagen levels high so that the skin will ...

To elaborate further on @rrirower, I think that it means that your body is no longer stressed as intensely as it was when you begun doing the exercise. You've probably gained or 'toned' muscle to help you with your routine. Adding more muscle mass does tend to add a little weight, but you will definitely lose some body fat as well. The lack of soreness ...

@Berin has given you a very good answer so I will just add that this question/answer about getting back in shape will give you some additional information. As far as your knee pain, you may find that a pair of Nordic Walking Poles can help to lessen the impact on your knees. They can also increase your calorie burn by about 20% over regular walking. ...

As a 42 year old man myself, I can relate. One thing about getting older is that you have to manage your recovery better, and be more strict on how you address your exercise and nutrition regimen. You need to start by figuring out what the first thing you want to address is: Start with what your desire is--lose fat, get "fit" Decide how to measure your ...

The best natural supplement I can recommend is OMG-3 (3 gr/day). This would help you out to reduce the inflammation, and the sore of your body. As a former athlete, you would know ice therapy is your best friend. Do not forget to put some ice at your knees after exercise. Finally, try to do mobility sessions. Focus on core balance and flexibility. Even ...

The only way to know if you've lost weight is to actually measure your weight. The fact that you're no longer experiencing pain does not equate to weight loss. As you've said, it simply means that your body is adapting to the exercise stress it has been under. Keep up the good work, and you will lose weight.

You can simply google the health benefit of each of the fruits/vegetables. Those would be the benefits of consuming those fruits/vegetables. About the consequences of not eating them, (assuming you aren't obtaining the same nutrients from other sources), you'll be deficient in those nutrients as well. I would tell you the health benefits of each ...

No, fat does not directly turn into muscle. The body breaks down your fat, as well as your food, into usable energy to fuel your daily activities and your exercise. If you eat too much food, your body does not bother to break down the fat. It just uses the food you have eaten. If however you do more activity or exercise than your food (calories) can ...
