Sometimes you may cheat on your diet or you may be struggling to lose some extra weight, so cardio is a great method to burn off extra calories and burn fat!
A lot of people in the fitness industry have fear mongered and made people fear that they would lose muscle if they did a lot of cardio.
and that just isn’t true! Here is a video by Elliott Hulse explaining why cardio burning muscle is a complete myth!
Intermittent fasting is more of an eating schedule than an actual diet, but numerous people have tried it and managed to lose a lot of weight. I decided to give it a shot and see if it is truly a great way to lose weight or if it is mostly a myth. Here is my first video log update on “intermittent fasting”. I kept it short for you. Also, at the end of this, I posted a picture and if you saw my previous post titled Attempting IF – Intermittent Fasting then you can see that I’m already starting to lose a little bit of weight. Some of that is water weight but I am confident that this is working.
Here is my video. I believe that this is really soon to credit or discredit my results, but here this is to get the ball rolling and I’ll keep you updated weekly.
A lot of people like to cut their body fat down before going into a bulk buy I’ve done it the opposite way, sort of. I’ve eaten slightly above maintenance calories with all the grams of protein I need, and have noticed a dramatic change of weight all while dropping my body fat percentage.
That’s not too say I actually lost fat, but the percentage of fat making up my total mass is much smaller due to having a lot more muscle.
During this “bulk”, I’ve noticed something that is just great and it’s helped me a lot.
I didn’t have to make huge changes in my diet to support the huge change taking place. All I had to do was work out and exercise, and eat just a little more. It’s been a huge change and I can be comfortable with myself because I know that change is sustainable.
When I do finally cut in November, it won’t be a full on change. It will be something minor as just lowering my calories slightly below maintenance.
Doing this bulk first and just focusing on gaining quality mass has helped me make the full lifestyle change I’ll need, but in baby steps so I’ve been learning better habits one at a time.
I can’t promise that this would work the same for you or that you would like it as much as doing a cut but that is just my testimony. This worked for me. Thanks for reading.
