If you want to succeed as bad as you want to breath then you’ll be successful
This looks amazing!
Reminder to self!
Find your snacking personality.
THIS. This is sooo helpful. Especially since I work through my normal, before-I-started-working diet. I would eat every 3.5 hours on the dot. And was sooo much slimmer.
Now with work, its a lot harder to snack and This. Is. Awesome.
Snow peas, baby corn, radishes, salad onions, 1 red chili, capers, a splash of olive oil and white wine vinegar, smoked paprika/chilli powder/ground coriander/black pepper/salt seasoned to taste - roasted in the oven at 180ºC/356ºF for 15 mins.
I didn’t eat all of this, it was just a snack, I had about a quarter of it and left the rest for my parents!
- Fat cells & muscle cells are two entirely different entities. You don’t CHANGE fat into muscle. Once a fat cell is gained, it is NEVER lost. Only shrunk or expanded.
- Higher lean body mass (muscle mass) results in greater insulin sensitivity, decreasing the risk of diabetes and increasing the body’s ability to process food & fat for energy instead of storage. Higher lean body mass increases RMR (resting metabolic rate) resulting in more fat loss with the same or less effort.
- Up to 30% of weight loss from diet alone is from lost muscle mass. Sarcopenia is the natural loss of muscle mass over time due to ageing. Increased muscle mass protects from the effects of sarcopenia over time.
- Resistance (strength) training increases bone density, which decreases the risk of osteoporosis.
What does it all mean? Not all exercise is created equal. Get off the treadmill, pick up something heavy and build yourself some muscle. There is more to working out than weight loss. This is NOT about skinny - this is about long term health and mobility.
