Some people have fast metabolisms, dont fret! Just do more cardio and maybe drink a protien shake in place of a meal if you want to gain muscle as well
Depends on the protien shake, and by meal i was thinking lunch or something. And of course, being fit requires effort As for muscle being denser than fat, absolutely, yes, but being heavy isn't necessarily unhealthy. Weighing 190 pounds from fat is drastically different than 190 from muscle :)
#53: Some shakes are actually specifically meal replacements and should, in fact, replace meals (1 if you want to maintain weight, 2 if you want to lose weight). Health is 80 percent nutrition, 20 percent exercise, and 100 percent mindset. Seriously, if you focus on becoming healthy... the weight will take care of itself. I am speaking through my own experience (both from my own journey of becoming healthy and from being a health and wellness coach) and the experience of so many others I have the great fortune to know.
It sucks, but it's true. It's due to women having more fat on their bodies for babies and birth, we just have to work a bit harder to get fit. Its just so much harder to lose weight. In health we learned that, for the most part, men don't really have to work for a flat stomach, just watch what they eat. It's so unfair:3
Actually, #3, muscle is denser than fat, so if you do it right you could just gain weight. Genetic differences between genders doesn't do much to effect metabolism, it's genetics of your family. Obviously this gets way deeper than we're going to get here. But learn yourself on some Biology! And it's only been 4 days, give it some time
I read somewhere that snacking a lot can help with metabolism. So, basically, if you try to stop eating often, then you're just going to gain weight, but don't quote me on that.
Well, do it for your health also! And stop looking at just the scale numbers. You can thin up and still stay the same weight if fat is converted onto muscle?
