4 STEPS To Gain Muscle & Maintaining Muscle and Losing Body Fat. PART 1


When we look at food, food consists of
three macronutrients and those are proteins, fats, carbs and
these help supply energy for the body. With all these diets out there, there are
these online gurus that can’t explain simply what a protein or carbohydrate is.
Let me make it easy and possible to understand. If it has a face, it’s a
protein. If it ran, swam, or flew on this earth it’s a protein and if it grows
from the ground, it’s a carbohydrate. Tough so far. Now
when it comes to fats, fats are really important and they can either come from
an animal source or a vegetable source like almonds, avocados, olive oil and
other good healthy fats and those animal fats I just mentioned like bacon and
butter and lard, grease, those are the ones we want to try to kind of avoid. So
in our diet we need around 15 to 30% of our total calories coming from fat. This
drawing right here is an illustration of a human cell and we have of anywhere
between 30 to 40 million cells on average and every single cell is wrapped
in fat called a phospholipid bilayer. Inside these cells – well let me mention,
we do need some fat to be able to make more cells because if we can’t make more
cells it’s called aging and most of us don’t want to age prematurely. A
really low fat diet can prevent you and regeneration of your cells because we’re
tearing down muscle almost daily and we need to repair them and so we need to create more cells.
