Bored With Chicken Breast Protein provides the body with the necessary building blocks to produce amino acids that are used for building muscle tissue.* Getting enough protein should be the top priority for muscle building, and alternatives like powders and bars are a convenient and delicious way to promote muscle growth!* Common forms of supplemental protein include:
I’m 63 years old, and have had some run-ins with health problems recently, at times caused by the medical treatment I was receiving at the time. That’s when I decided to take matters into my own hands.
I’ve begun to work out with progressive resistance every 5 days, as any more frequently and I would injure myself and gain 5 lbs. “instantly” in spite of dieting due, I think, to hormonal changes which cause muscles to retain fluids while healing(this seems to be a one-time thing)and an insatiable hunger which transcends the increased calorie-burning going on-I literally become a bottomless pit. Taking vitamins has the same effect.
I also do low-level aerobic activity most days for sometimes 3-4 hrs. at a time, you know, swimming, walking,or exercise-biking. My doctor thinks I’m a real animal, and that I should take it a little easier at my age and suggests I lose weight more slowly(I’m losing about 2&1/2 lbs. per week). I’ve managed to cut my blood pressure medication dose in half on my own(My wife and I have medical backgrounds and are able to monitor our own blood pressures periodically.)
While I don’t advocate anyone just doing their own thing regarding medical problems, I do advocate that a person do a self-evaluation and determine what works best with him or her, and critically look at advice given by others.
I hope I’ve answered a few questions that have yet to be asked and about which their is some misinformation floating around out there.
So exercise, eat a healthy diet, do relaxation routines, and bulk up on non-starchy vegetables and, yes, be just a little crazy.
