Increased muscle size and less body fat is the common goal of bodybuilders, male and female. To do this naturally, without artificial chemicals is the unstated qualification for this goal for nearly all of us.
Most of us are not willing to suffer the possible side effects of chemical performance enhancement, and rightly so.
There are natural means to stimulate that muscle growth. There are natural means to strip off that body fat. And, these natural means will not have a negative effect on your health.
Also, your physical improvements are permanent, not fleeting.
The Un-Natural Way Can Lead To Health Problems
In the 1970s I lived in Texas and trained at a local club. One of the club managers had been a Mr. Texas contest winner about ten years before. I had trouble believing this because he didn't look like he had ever worked out.
He was about 6 ft 3" and didn't weigh much more than 180 and he didn't appear muscular. He showed me pictures of his contest win and, other than the face, that was someone else; huge, 260 pounds or so, and muscular.
He told me he had been taking anabolic steroids for several years, buying them under the counter at health clubs and such. He didn't understand about cycling and overdid the drugs.
After he stopped he found the bulk disappearing at an alarming rate. His doctor told him he had the organs of an "old man" and his testicles had atrophied.
This former Mr. Texas had just been denied health insurance at age 42.
The four-time Mr. Universe, Bill Pearl, writing in his great book, "Keys To The Inner Universe," the best book on bodybuilding ever written, advises against taking any type of steroid or growth hormone for more than three weeks and not more that two cycles per year.
The late and great Vince Gironda, The Iron Guru and trainer of champions, advocated natural nutrition and supplements for muscle growth and fat reduction.
Vince's acolytes included many of the biggest names in bodybuilding for about five decades.
Natural Muscle Growth
We know that protein is composed of amino acids that are the building blocks of muscle tissue. We also know that "good" fats are what help the amino acids convert into muscle. Fats also supply energy to the body.
Natural complex carbohydrates are necessary for fuel and fiber; to fuel the furnace and to grease the waste disposal system.
A bodybuilder's diet should consist of 20-25% their calories from protein, 20% from fats and the remainder in carbohydrates and fiber.
The lipotroupes help catalyze the breakdown of fat that you ingest. They also cleanse fats from our liver, preventing severe liver problems like cirrhosis.
They also can regulate estrogen in the system. Excess estrogen hormone decreases the flow of bile through the liver and can increase cholesterol levels.
Natural (good) fats are those from fish, lean meat and poultry, olive oil, wheat germ oil, walnut oil and other nut oils. Bad fats are hydrogenated or trans-fats and should be avoided always.http://www.goodmuscleadvice.com/truth-about-supplements
