Protein: The #1 Tool for Building a Lean, Muscular Physique

Posted by on Apr 13, 2012 in Burn It UP, Diet It UP

*Please refer to our updated article on protein and top protein sources (4/2014). I’m a HUGE proponent of getting a lot of protein in the diet, and it’s not all about building huge, beefy muscles (although it helps a lot if that’s what you’re going for). Put plain and simply, protein is the “leanness” nutrient. It helps pack on toned-up, rock hard new muscle, preserves the muscle that the body (and you) busted its ass to build up, and elevates the body’s metabolism, burning extra calories than normal and shredding off nasty body fat/cellulite. I’ll be blunt — becoming lean, toned, and ripped up requires two simple steps: 1. building muscle tone & 2. shredding body fat. Eating protein constantly throughout the day does both simultaneously. Here’s how:   Building muscle tone. In the world of sports nutrition there’s a...

To simplify the calorie calculation process (to gain, lose, or maintain weight), we’ve developed a simple calorie calculator to find your personalized level to gain, lose, or maintain weight. It requires that you to input your body fat %, weight, and TDEE multiplier (total daily energy expenditure) and voila, it’ll spit out your very own personal daily caloric requirements for any situation. Additionally, although BMI is a horrible metric to gauge whether or not someone should be classified as underweight, normal, overweight, or obese, we’ve built in a simplified BMI calculator that requires you to only input your height and weight. BMI is a widely used and recognized metric to determine the overweight & obese percentage of the population.

High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is nasty…cut it out. Although the rise in obesity can’t solely be attributed to increased high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) consumption, there’s no doubt that HFCS has been one of the major factors. You can find the full story explaining how insulin, carbs, and HFCS impact weight loss here, but I’ll quickly recap why HFCS is so bad for the body. The HFCS Story: There are many different types of sugar, a few include: lactose, which is found in dairy products; fructose, which is found in fruits; and glucose, which is a product of carbohydrate breakdown. These sugars are not chemically identical and have much different effects on the body’s blood sugar levels. Most fruits have a relatively low glycemic index value (low glycemic index foods raise blood sugar levels at a slower rate). Even though they’re high in sugar,...
