It has been proven that increasing the consumption of proteins builds strong muscles and reduces hunger when losing weight by making it higher than the recommended and suggested allowance of only ten to thirty five percent of total calories.
Of course, it is not only important to just build strong muscles but it is at the same time important to maintain this building of strong muscles. In order to do just that is to simply exercise at least one hour every single day. Do not confuse the build strong muscles term we are referring to here with weight lifting since progressive weight lifting has been proven to get buffed, improve resting metabolic rate, improve glucose tolerance, muscular function, aerobic fitness, improved bone strength and density, and improve lifestyle although it also helps to build strong muscles as well. Exercises build strong muscles by focusing more on strength and toning while lifting weights build strong muscles by focusing making it bigger and at the same time naturally stronger also. Note that when you maintain and build strong muscles, you can have a positive impact on metabolic rate for every pound of muscle used up with at least fourteen calories for every three calories used up by a pound of fat. Therefore this means that the number of calories expended per day is at least in part determined by the ratio of muscle to fat.
Increasing exercise together with an increased consumption of proteins not only builds strong muscles but it will also help you sustain a good, healthy and balanced weight in the long run by helping in the prevention of muscle loss caused by inactivity, aging, and therapies. Having all these benefits will in turn provide you with more power and the capability to still have fun and still get to be involved in highly strenuous and dynamic activities, allowing you to enjoy life even more without limits.
In addition to optimizing and living life to its fullest by taking care of your health and wellness such as the guidelines mentioned above, is to concentrate on a good diet of fruits and vegetables. You have to make sure that you have overall fitness and that means both inside and out. When you build strong muscles, you are taking care of your body on the outside and that should go along with taking care of the inside. Unfortunately, the normal vegetable serving is only 50 calories and the regular fruit serving is only 70 calories, while enhanced sugars like pasta, bread, cakes, rice, and etc have a whooping 200 calories minimum and can even go higher just for a regular serving.
Just imagine having to go on a bicycle ride for eight miles in thirty minutes just to use up the calories consumed in a donut or run about three miles in thirty minutes just to use up the calories consumed in a regular sized potato! That is unbelievable! This is why, in order to optimize health or even build strong muscles, it is a must to minimize your calorie consumption from artificial and processed foods like enhanced sugars such as these.
