Why i chose this

throughout my child hood i have been struggling with weight issues and food problems. It really made me take a hit to my self-confidence, and just ended up to me becoming even fatter than before. Then i started changing the way i looked at food and started working out more, resulting in a major weight loss and a spike in confidence. I think the topic of losing weight and building muscle is something everyone should take a look at, not on will you be healthier but more confident.

Other

There are many things i learned about building muscle and losing weight and the same time. I learned that lifting isn't the only thing to help you build muscle, you must have a balanced diet. Of course it depends on the type body you are building for, but you can go wrong with a high protein and low carb diet to build toned mass. This is easier said than done however you must pay attention to what you are eating check weather it has complex or simple carbs which makes all the difference. Another thing i learned it how protein rebuilds the muscle after a workout. To elaborate the, when you workout you are essentially forcing the muscle to adapt to higher weight, by breaking it down. Now when the muscle is broken down, it is very wise to consume protein. Protein takes the broken down muscle fibers and rebuilds them up even stronger than before repairing them even stronger than before.
