Experts say there's an exact science to losing weight and the same rules apply
when picking up a few pounds.
((JOHN WARE/ROANOKE ATHLETIC CLUB; IF THEY DO IT PROPERLY THEN THE BODY WILL
ADAPT. IF THEY DO IT IMPROPERLY THEN THE BODY JUST RESPONDS. SO IF YOU'RE
LOOKING TO MAKE THE BODY CHANGE THE WAY IT LOOKS OR ACTS, YOU HAVE TO STRESS IT
So what is the right way? The first thing is to begin behaving nutritionally.
A person has to know how many calories the body needs and what percentage of
nutrients are required on a daily basis.
((I EAT THREE MEALS A DAY. GOOD HEALTHY MEALS, CHICKEN, VEGETABLES. BUT ALSO
AFTER I WORK OUT AND BEFORE I WORK OUT, I GET A PROTEIN SHAKE OR I EAT A

FOR THE HEART. EVEN IF YOU'RE JUST TRYING TO GAIN MUSCLE. YOU STILL NEED TO

So the process to gaining weight is no more a one-size-fits-all plan than is
But the advantages of gaining muscle far outweight the alternatives, including
retarding the loss of lean body mass at a rate of about one half pounds a year,
which makes a person weaker.
