Muscle-Building Workout and Diet


How do bodybuilders get low body fat? They
eat so much, it seems like a contradiction. They eat a mixture of high protein, low fat
and low carbohydrate foods to fuel their workout. And they eat 3,000 to 5,000 calories a day.
Most people would get fat on that diet. And they are burning just as many calories
if not more with their workout. Bodybuilders count calories so well Weight Watchers would
be happy to adopt them. I think you’re thinking of Jenny Craig. Never met her. But body builders get such
low body fat because they are burning as much as they take in. That’s a neutral energy equation, I think. Early in their workout, they are burning more
calories than they take in if they want to lose weight. If they are trying to gain weight
or bulk up, they’ll eat a diet that favors muscle growth but without any extra calories
to get stored as fat. What happens if they stop working out? If a guy continues eating 3000 calories and
stops burning them, he’ll get fat faster than a girl sitting on the couch eating bon-bons. So they end up on a low calorie diet and low
body fat. There are weight lifters with zero percent
body fat, though that isn’t healthy. It sounds ultra-healthy. It means that if they burn more than they
eat, they’ll burn muscle. That’s the opposite of what these guys want. Ah, like having no savings in the bank though
you might have to spend more one week than your paycheck. Now, too much fat is bad for you. Too little
is bad when you get sick or have no reserves when you can’t eat. Yeah, but I can imagine a lot of those body
builders could chase down dinner like a caveman and eat well in the apocalypse. They’re training for strength, not speed,
so they can’t catch dinner unless they can lift it up and drop it back down on the ground. That’s sounds a lot like a Wylie E. Coyote
skit.
