Product description

Product Description

Have you tried to diet in the past and found that it wasn’t working out for you? Are you tired of spending months and months trying to lose weight without seeing any results? Thousands of people feel this way all of the time and even though they are following all the guidelines of their diet, they just aren’t seeing results. The issue might not be you; it might be more about the types of foods you are eating. By this time, you should try out a low carb diet, and with the helpful recipes in this guide-book and your handy pressure cooker, you can get started right away.
Protein is important in the diet, as like the other nutrients. Finding the right balance in the diet is important not only to fuel the body before and during the workout but for proper recovery afterward. A diet that is full of proteins can actually hurt the athlete's performance and can lead to dehydration and other serious problems.
The average person needs to have about 6-8 grams of protein per kilogram of their body weight; however an athlete will need slightly more. The increase will take into account the increased lean muscle mass of the athlete and the need for more energy, however if the protein is being added in place of complex carbohydrates, there might be a bigger problem overall.
The muscle burns energy simply by existing. One pound of muscle burns between 40 and 120 calories per day, simply sitting still (On a related note, one pound of fat only burns between one and three calories per day). When the strength athlete starts working out, obviously he will have a need for energy- the muscles will turn to glycogen which is stored as energy there. Glycogen also helps the muscles to retain water. During a high intensity workout, the demands are going to exceed the glycogen stores and the muscle will need additional energy sources. Fat and protein cannot be oxidized fast enough so the body will need carbohydrates to fuel the hard working muscles.
