Drop Fat, Get Muscle

By now, countless people’s New Year’s resolutions have fallen through; one in particular is to lose weight. Not only is it complex to lose weight, but to gain muscle at the same time seems impossible. Fortunately there are certain tips in dieting and exercise which may be helpful in completing this.

1. Weight loss occurs when your body has fewer calories. This can occur with dieting and/or exercise. Weight training not only burns calories, but also puts your muscles to work, building and strengthening them. Once you have increased your muscle, you will also burn more calories. Muscle burns calories, thus helping in weight loss. Calorie maintenance level is the number of calories your body naturally burns each day; muscle increases this number substantially. Weight training includes squats, dead lifts, bench presses, bicep curls, hammer curls, tricep extensions, exc. Other exercises which would be helpful are squats lunges, crunches, push-ups and back extensions.

2. Eat the right foods if you want to lose weight. You cannot expect your body to discard fat when you are still maintaining a high calorie intake, even if you do weight exercises. Foods you should eat when trying to gain muscle include the following:

a. Protein: Lots and lots of protein! Eat meat, poultry, fish, eggs, peanut butter, etc.

b. Fat: As bad as this sounds, fat is essential for muscle gain. Just exercise lots and the bad fat will be gone. Fish oil and omega 3, 6, and 9 are great for muscle gain.

c. Vegetables and fruits: Colorful vegetables are the best. The more colorful the plate, the healthier it is. Fruits have healthy sugar in them. This is a better form of sugar than what you could get from most other foods.

d. Water: Drink and drink and drink water. It is essential for everything.

e. Whole grains: Trade your white bread or rice for whole grain if you want to lose weight and gain muscle.

Other tips are:

– Avoid foods that come out of a box.

– Avoid trans-fats, but saturated fats are fine.

– Don’t drink pop.

– Limit not-natural sugar consumption.

Other options such as protein powder and prescription and non prescription drugs can help you to reach your goal as you lose weight, and gain muscle.

It’s Good to Have Big Thighs

A recent discovery by the research team at Oxford found that junk in the trunk is good for the heart and can lengthen your life. Having a large abdomen and stomach makes people more prone to heart disease, but people with small tummies and large bottoms and thighs experience the opposite effect. The exact measurements of the perfect thighs are anything close to, but slightly exceeding 23.6 inches.

Too much fat is a concern. When there is too much fat around the hips and thighs it may cause Cushing’s syndrome, diabetes, high blood pressure, or mood swings. A good body type is a pear shape. Pear-shaped people have lower inflammatory cytokine levels. This means that their body responds to infections which may cause diabetes, insulin resistance, or heart disease positively, and works to prevent the infections. An apple shaped body is the worst shape to have, as it raises both the risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Fat on the thighs and bottom stores fatty acids. Fat on the legs also keeps people from overwhelming the body when they overeat. Leg-fat produces leptin, which affects metabolism positively. It is also been proven that having not enough fat in your backside and thighs can cause metabolic problems. It is harder to lose or gain weight around that thighs and backside. Hip fat also promotes better blood sugar control (linked to avoiding diabetes) and fat burning.

An ideal person would have fat thighs, and a slim tummy, which is unfortunately very rare and difficult. Normally you get fat thighs and a fat tummy, not one or the other.
