Lean Gains Diet

Posted by E. Spencer Thu, 14 Jul 2011 16:48:00 GMT

It’s the newest diet that’s shattering all the misconceptions surrounding how and when you eat. If you’re tired of obsessing over your meals, this is the diet for you. Based on scientific research, the lean gains diet along with bodybuilding supplements can help you achieve your goals without the burden of eating every three hours and planning out each meal throughout the day. Martin Berkhan explains his Lean Gains diet thoroughly on his site www.LeanGainsDiet.com

Dieting Myths

You know that there are many dos and don’ts associated with dieting. Here are a few of the don’ts that you’re not supposed to do while dieting.

  • You need to eat at regular intervals to boost your metabolism.

  • Small portions throughout the day will keep you from feeling hungry.

  • When you don’t eat for a long period of time, your body will think you’re starving and will make it harder     to burn fat.

  • If you don’t eat regularly, you won’t be able to build muscle.

    The Truth about Intermittent Fasting

    The Lean Gains Diet goes against the traditional dieting advice you’ve heard. It’s all about intermittent fasting. Ok, what is that? It’s a regimen where you fast for a period of time then eat afterwards. While most intermittent fasting programs usually require you to fast one day then eat the next, the Lean Gains program modifies this regimen. Instead of fasting an entire day, you fast for sixteen hours then eat during the remaining eight hours. While you are in the feeding phase of the day, you eat a maximum of three meals.

    What Do You Eat?

    Okay, I’m gonna have to eat nothing but protein and zero carbs on the Lean Gains diet, right? Wrong! On the days you’re working out, you actually want to consume carbs. Before you train, eat a mid-sized meal including fresh vegetables, a piece of fruit, and a meat protein. You can add a simple carb to this meal if you’re going to the gym soon after the meal. Be careful not to go wild with the carbs. Your largest meal should be after your workout. Complex carbs like sweet potatoes can be included in this meal. For those with a sweet tooth, you can even add a little dessert so long as it isn’t loaded with fat and you don’t overindulge.

    On the days you’re out of the gym, dial back on the calories by decreasing the amount of carbs you consume. You’ll want to eat protein like salmon, vegetables, and fruit. Your largest meal will be in the morning. Your meals should consist of largely protein.

    Whether you’re on your workout or off day, you want your last meal to be a slow burning protein. This will assist in keeping you from feeling hungry while you fast and also help prevent your muscles from breaking down.

    Conclusion

    The Lean Gains Diet helps to lose weight without sacrificing muscle. If you want to enhance the effects, you may want to consider protein along with other supplements. From the makers of AnaBeta, PES Erase and PES Shift may aid bodybuilders trying to lose weight while on the Lean Gains Diet. While Erase has cortisol-blocking benefits, Shift helps provide thyroid support to aid metabolism.

    Cycle Assist vs Cycle Support

    Posted by E. Spencer Fri, 01 Jul 2011 17:08:00 GMT

    You just finished a cycle of an anabolic and know you’re ready to start your post cycle therapy. Cycle Assist and Cycle Support are two great PCT products. But how do you decide between the two? We’ll highlight the differences between these products so that you can choose the right PCT for you.

    Cycle Assist


    Cycle Assist (240 Capsules)

    Vitamin B-6 may appear to be an unassuming B-vitamin, but it can serve as one of the more valuable bodybuilding supplements in many ways. It helps to protect the liver, which is extremely important after taking an anabolic supplement. B-6 also supports the nervous system by aiding neurotransmitter production. This can help serotonin levels, which benefits mood and relaxation. Vitamin B-6 is also an ingredient in ZMA, which may be anabolic.

    Zinc gluconate is another ingredient found in ZMA. It not only supports liver health, but it also plays an important role in protein synthesis. You can find zinc in a lozenge form to support immunity during a cold. During a post cycle, zinc aids prostate health and helps to prevent an enlarged prostate. It also is an important nutrient that aids proper development.

    Grape seed extract is a potent antioxidant, meaning it protects against damage caused by free radicals. According to research, it may help to prevent certain health conditions such as cancer and heart disease. Taking grape seed extract may support healthy blood vessels, which also benefits heart health and may aid people with high blood pressure.

    Cycle Support


    Cycle Support (60 Servings)

    Red yeast rice has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to benefit people suffering from indigestion or circulation problems. Studies suggest that it may lower not only total cholesterol but LDL, or “bad”, cholesterol. Red yeast rice also may help with triglycerides as well. It may offer these benefits due to compounds that have a similar action as statins.

    Worried about your prostate after taking an anabolic? Nettle root helps to protect the prostate and may aid the prevention of prostate conditions. It helps to prevent enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia. Men with BPH often have a difficult time urinating or problems with frequent urination. Nettle root also may benefit men with prostate cancer. It also helps to control the body’s production of dihydrotesterone, which may cause baldness.

    Idbenone is a synthetic compound that is similar to CoQ10. It has been used to treat diseases affecting the nervous system in Europe. It may help people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease by helping to slow the development of the disease. Idebenone may support liver and heart health. It may benefit Friedreich’s ataxia, a disease that causes problems with speaking and walking.
