Musclemania® Pro Guillem Clavé says,"Too many people and 'professionals' are obsessed with crash diets and heart disease. And that's because they don't understand their body."
"The important thing is Metabolism, not kcalories and kilometers."
"Your metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy. The higher your metabolism, the more calories (energy) you will burn each day."
"Most often, when people think of "exercise," they think of doing cardiovascular exercise (cardio): running, elliptical training, or pedaling. .
But let's take a look, Cardio helps stimulate metabolism and increases the amount of calories you burn throughout the day, but that increase in calorie burning stops shortly after you stop exercising."
"This is important when you realize that the more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism, since muscle is more "expensive" from an energy point of view than fat. In addition, muscle tissue is also the body's largest glucose reservoir."
"The reason this is remarkable is that the more muscle you have, the more effectively and efficiently your body can handle carbohydrates. .
Resistance training (free weights💪🏿) not only helps you build muscle and strength, but also increases metabolism for up to 38 hours after training."
"And then in an effort to lose fat quickly, many people often adopt crash diets that consume a maximum of 1,000 calories per day. These absurd "quick fix" diets are a one-way ticket to muscle loss and slow metabolism.
Yes, you will lose weight by following these ultra low calorie diets, but you will also lose a lot of muscle mass (which reduces your metabolism). And to make matters worse, you are more than likely to regain all of your weight once you start eating normally again."
"Losing weight takes time, patience, and persistence."
