Les protéines ne sont pas le meilleur aliment pour se muscler

Protein is not the best food for building muscle

Today I'm going to write a little about the 2nd myth: that eating large amounts of fat or carbs (as opposed to eating lots of protein) will make you look like a little bag of bacon (fat). If your goal is to gain weight and muscle mass, eating low amounts of fat or carbs IS NOT the answer!

In my previous article, "Why You Don't Need Protein to Gain Muscle", I talked about one of the 3 misconceptions everyone has about protein, which is that you need to eat plenty of it massive to gain weight and develop your muscle mass.

I've explained why it is NOT true that protein makes up most of the muscle mass in your body.

Today I'm going to write a little about the second myth: that eating large amounts of fat or carbs (as opposed to eating lots of protein) will make you look like a little ball of bacon (fat).

Let me make one thing clear: if your goal is to gain weight and build muscle, eating low amounts of fat or carbs is NOT the answer!

Many people are under the impression that you can gain muscle WITHOUT gaining fat by following a high protein, low to moderate fat, or low to moderate carbohydrate diet.

Well, I'm here to tell you that couldn't be further from the truth.

In the 70s and 80s, everyone was all about the "low fat" diet.

People thought you should avoid fat at all costs, even if you were trying to gain muscle.

That's when all these "lean" or "fat-free" products appeared on the markets, taking advantage of the latest fashion.

Then, out of nowhere, with the re-release of the Atkins diet book in the 90s, and even now, everyone turned around and started making carbs the ENEMY # 1.

Now it was fine to eat fats and proteins, "ohhhh, but stay away from those carbs." We are really gullible!

The funny thing is, whether people are on a low-fat or low-carb diet, they still don't look any better.

People still weren't reaching their muscle building and weight gain goals!

Well, to cut to the chase (because I could write about this for pages and pages), however you split your calories, high fat, low fat, high protein, low protein , high carb, low carb, etc., you will NOT gain an ounce of muscle mass if you don't eat enough calories in general, period!!!!!.

You can shove gram after gram of protein down your throat, but if you're not giving your body enough calories, you won't gain weight.

Vice versa, you can follow the lower carb or lower fat diet, but if you continue to eat MORE calories than your body uses per day, you won't burn fat.

Your body responds to CALORIES.

Food, regardless of the type, is digested in the stomach, is converted into a form of ENERGY, is sent into the bloodstream, is transferred to the various tissues and organs, where it is then used in the manner most appropriate for your body.

It's not eating carbs or fats that makes people overweight, it's eating too many calories, whether per day or per session!!!!!.

If you want to gain weight, you can't follow a low-fat or low-carb diet.

I repeat, you CANNOT. Your body needs these calories. It's impossible to get enough calories from protein alone to build muscle.

Additionally, it is carbohydrates that are converted to glucose, which is the ONLY thing your muscles can use to provide energy to a muscle when training, and it is the only substance in the body that pushes water and other nutrients into a muscle, which adds to the volume, size and weight of a muscle, NOT protein!

These are the fats your body uses to line muscle cells and create the hormones that help build muscle mass, like testosterone, not protein! In my next article I will talk about the third protein myth that is spreading.
