Hi Mike, I am 25 years old, weigh 90 kg x 173cm in height with 30% body fat and I’m trying to shed the fat and build some decent muscle. Should I first focus on losing fat before thinking about growing the muscles or can I do both. When you say cardio is not good for muscles does that mean I should avoid walking instead of taking the bus? To break my sedentary life I started to walk (including brisk walking) everywhere and that alone amounts to at least 5 hours in a week. Does that matter? I’ve been thinking about doing the farmers walk exercise, is that a good idea to boost fat loss and muscle growth? I’ve also started going to the gym since last week. Hope you can enlighten me. Thanks in advance!
The best way to understand and implement Step 1 is to skip the boxed, pre-made foods, and shop the perimeter of the grocery store. By shopping just the perimeter of the grocery store you’ll pick up organic fruits and veggies, lean protein from the butcher and freshly baked bread from the store bakery. You’re only buying fresh food. Of course this is more metaphor than rule. Organic pasta, rice and beans are usually found in isles as well are organic whole wheat flour and spices. Be sure to choose these ingredients in the purest forms, pick up the organic brown rice, not the box of rice mixture with the spices. The only ingredient on the label should be “brown rice.”
This is why bodybuilders dating back just as far…from Sandow to Reeves and all the way up the line…been using, and continue to use, this knowledge to systematically and routinely reduce and increase body fat levels.
Joanne, I used to add too much body fat when bulking, but now struggle to put on weight just by being Vegan since my metabolism is now so revved up (or maybe because the extra fiber makes my digestion faster). I had to cut my calories from 2800 to 2500 because I felt stuffed all day but it seems my weight is not suffering too much at 29% healthy fats. Just a heads up!
This low-impact exercise increases your metabolism as well as your heart rate. A heightened metabolic rate will burn away calories at a faster pace, thus helping to eliminate the fat accumulated around your belly. In fact, walking decreases the risk of injuries and is considered to be a good workout for beginners.

This traditional Mexican breakfast food requires only eight ingredients, including chicken, queso blanco, and corn tortillas. It may look sinful, but because it’s baked (rather than fried), it comes in under 300 calories and 2 grams of saturated fat per serving.

“Each time I needed to lose the baby weight, I eating after 6:30 p.m. five nights a week. The other two evenings were reserved for nights out. Most of what I’d eat at night was junk food anyway, so it took only two months to get my pre-baby body back.” —Deborah Gilboa, Pittsburgh, PA

If you’re looking to trim down your belly, then pistachios, together with almonds, are one of the best nuts you can snack on. They are lower in calories and fat than most other nuts, while remaining high in protein, fibre and other essential vitamins and minerals.
First of all I want to ask if I have to soak a methi over night to drink in the morning..?? and I also want to know if I have to stick with the same timings of the diet schedule or can change the timings… I work from 8AM in the morning so I wanted to know if I can have that methi water with almond and black paper at 6 in the morning..??
Perfect! Just what I thought, but I do have a doubt….when I get home, should I go directly to bed and not having breakfast? I mean…when do I make the hour “difference” between days, otherwise my days won’t have a rest break, I don’t know if you know what I mean, should I sleep a few zzz before eating breakfast again?
