5 Myths About Metabolism and Weight Loss

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020
Myths About Metabolism

Most of us believe that weight loss has something to do with a fast metabolism. So we fill ourselves up with caffeine and what-not to speed up our metabolism. The truth is that it only speeds it up momentarily, and it does not lead to weight loss, at least not the way we think it does. There are so many myths about metabolism that we really need to dig into them and learn the truths.

First, we need to understand what metabolism is.

What is Metabolism?

The term metabolism refers to the chemical reactions in the cells of our body, which convert food into energy. There are two types of metabolic reactions: catabolism and anabolism. Both of these processes are important for the functioning of our bodies, and both need to be understood to differentiate fact from myth.

Here are five myths about metabolism.

Protein Shake Woman

Many people are easily deluded that they can increase their muscles’ level by simply drinking whey protein without working out. Yep, the lure of protein is that strong. You would be more likely to find someone who enjoys exhausting him/herself reaching their goal. Everybody wants to have a perfect body, while only a few enjoy the idea of sweating in the gym.

Protein shakes, on the other hand, are a convenient and affordable way to the desired biceps and triceps. But you might read a review that you stumbled upon on the internet, and it turns out that those shakes have a lot of downsides. So, let’s check out what happens when you drink protein shakes without sweating in the gym.

The Carb to Protein Ratio Diet

Sunday, July 14th, 2019
Dr. John Berardi

Since the late 1990’s Dr. John Berardi has published 8 scientific abstracts; 15 scientific papers and textbook chapters; presented at nearly 50 scientific, exercise, and nutrition-related conferences; and published countless articles online. Berardi’s articles at Testosterone Magazine so many years ago provided me with the foundation of my fitness and nutrition knowledge today. If you want to know more about the Carb to Protein Ratio Diet, this is the man to ask.

Today’s Topic – The Carb to Protein Ratio Diet

I have written, on numerous occasions, about reducing your carbohydrate intake and increasing your protein intake to lose fat and maintain muscle mass when dieting. Then I went ahead and suggested how many carbs to eat in a day, how much protein to eat in a day, and how much fat to eat in a day. And then I even provided 10 tips for getting shredded. Plenty of resources to help you learn more about organizing your macronutrient intake if this piece doesn’t answer your questions.

Despite these suggestions, time and again I am still asked how much protein, carbs, and fat people should be eating each day. Then when I give my answers, people still question me:

“Shouldn’t I be eating more carbs?”
“Isn’t that too much protein?”
“How many calories should I aim for?”

Need protein powder?

If you are looking for a pure protein powder check out Muscle Milk, which comes in a variety of different flavors, mixes great in milk, water, or coffee, and is available in 2.5 lb and 5 lb jugs.

Click here to order or learn more about Muscle Milk.

Now I have a specific macronutrient layout for you to follow based on your bodyweight. The protein distribution is a little lower than I usually recommend and the carbs are definitely higher than I recommend for most fat loss diets.
