Can You Out-Train a Bad Diet?
As much as we would like to
argue the facts whether you can just continue with a bad diet because you will
or can burn all the calories at the gym, science is not on that side.
A study published in the
British Medical Journal confirms that having the burn and refuel mentality is
very dangerous especially if you want lean muscles.
You may or can burn up to 800
calories in an HIIT session then enjoy a treat of a double cheeseburger. The
result will be a net retention of calories meaning your exercise effort is
counteracted by bad diet and therefore.....pointless.
Food manufacturers also take
this opportunity to make it look acceptable to eat the nutritionally deficient
foods that are unhealthy if you are bodybuilding.
Here are some reasons why you
canít out-train a bad diet -
Arenít a Professional Athlete
The ďprosĒ have a consistent
training program that burns lots of calories in the course of their fitness
regime. You canít say the same for regular people who may end up eating more
than they burn.
It may make sense if you eat
high calorie carbohydrates if youíre preparing to run a marathon but not if
youíre only running for two miles or a jog around the block.
Fat burning will work only if
you lower your intake of calorie-rich foods so that your body can draw its
energy source from body fat. Otherwise, it will be a wild goose chase.
Itís also important to state
that professional athletes probably have a very strict diet plan as well as a
focused mind-set so the idea of ďI can eat what every I wantĒ doesnít feature
in their plans.
Wonít Peak on a Bad Diet
To build lean muscle, you
need regular intense exercises, however, if you are not on a good diet, you
won't have the energy to endure the intensity of training.
Snacks like soda and fries
may give you an instant sugar high but canít fuel an intense fitness session,
and if you eat high-fat foods in the evening, your sleep may be disrupted,
leaving you too exhausted to give your all at the gym.
For adequate endurance that
can help you develop lean muscles, you should eat a healthy combination of
whole grains for carbohydrates and protein, before and after a workout. Monitor
your fat intake to minimize extra calories that can quickly increase your
weight and also lower your performance at the gym.
It is advisable that you aim
for 30% protein, 30% fat and 40% carbs for a healthy bodybuilding good diet.
The Interest to Exercise
Whether your diet is poor or
you eat too much, both will make you slow, less driven and lacking the energy
youíll need to exercise.
Eating well will motivate you
to exercise, and when youíre fit, you gain the motivation to eat better making
this an endless loop.
Eating a low-carb diet with
high fat will weaken your adaptation to training, hinder your performance while
also leading to you developing a bad mood, so you wonít even want to see the
gym, let alone train in it.
Will Be Difficult
To look ripped, you must work
on certain muscles and tone them over time Ė this isnít a quick process. When
you consume extra calories, you will mainly focus on burning them instead of working
to get a ripped look.
When you eat a bad diet, the
fat will cover your muscles (known as visceral fat) so that even when you
exercise like crazy, the muscles will not show under the layer of fat, and you
wonít be able to lose fat by only doing abs exercises.
It is easier to
build lean muscles if youíre not overfeeding on carbs and eating a bad diet.
