Is there anyway to retain (and build) muscle while on a fat loss program?
If you watched the last episode of Adonis Golden Ratio Live Lean TV called, the 14 Day Lose Fat Quickly Diet Challenge, you’re probably now following a 14 day TEMPORARY diet that puts your body in a SAFE calorie deficit.
The question you may now be asking is…
“Brad does this calorie deficit mean I’ll also lose my precious muscle?”
Great question Live Leaner.
And I have an even better answer for you’¦
“probably not’¦but maybe.”
Yeah, great answer Brad.
However, if you follow these 2 diet tricks, you’ll be setting your body up to burn fat without losing muscle.
Every body reacts differently, BUT with the Lose Fat Quickly 14 Day Challenge, you will be consuming a lot of healthy dietary FAT.
And this is KEY.
A low carb AND low dietary fat diet is where most guys and girls lose muscle.
Essentially they’re eating too lean.
How can you eat TOO LEAN?
Think of those people that only eat EGG WHITES and chicken.
Side note: eat the whole egg would ya! 90% of the nutrients are in the yolk!
Your body NEEDS quality HEALTHY DIETARY FATS even when you’re trying to lose fat. And when I say QUALITY’¦I’m not talking about a Big Mac (sorry Ronald).
Focus on consuming inflammation fighting omega-3 fats.
Our DNA has only evolved .02% over the past 40,000 years, however our cavemen ancestors ate a lot more omega-3s than we do today.
You can load up on foods rich in omega-3s by eating:
– Wild fish and seafood
– Free range eggs
– Grass fed beef
You can also supplement with a high quality fish oil. I love Ascenta NutraSea omega-3 fish oil. The lemon and mango flavors taste great. Get 25% off by using discount coupon code: “LIVE LEAN” at the checkout.
To maintain, and in some cases build muscle, you need to take in A LOT of dietary fat when you go low carb to lose fat.
One of the most important supplements to maintain muscle on a fat loss program are Branch Chained Amino Acids (ie. BCAAs). I usually add some to water before, during, and after my workout, and sometimes in my water bottle between meals. BCAAs act like an ozone layer protecting your muscles from breakdown.
And while you’re at it’¦drink a high quality greens powder in the morning as your vitamin & mineral insurance AND natural energy boaster.
