Really my vision about stay fit will be always connected to a low calorie program because of many reasons, and the most important is the time you have to dedicate to take care of yourself, Normally “you have a busy life” and not too much time to go to the gym, So a low calorie diet allows you to accommodate a weekly and easy to achieve exercise program to your busy schedule, less calories in your system, less time to burn that out of your system, more time to rest during the nights, better and more energy during the morning time, along with this facts I see the aging as a really powerful fact and that means at some point in your life, you will have problems to keep the level of a super intense fitness or bodybuilding lifestyle. so take it easy, do your best, take care of what you eat, drink a lot of water and consider the possibility to always and forever be in a low calorie diet that will allow you to control the way you look more because of what you eat.
However we all want to feel that power of give everything in the gym, so pre-workout supplements and pre-workout meals are very important for the goals you have in mind either if you have in mind build muscle or to lose weight.
I will always train to try to lose weight, even if I don’t need it, I want focus on cardio, but this is not about what I like so whatever you like or want in a fitness program please consider pre-workout meals so important to achieve your goals.
A pre-workout meal is a whole foods meal that falls within 3 hours of your workout. If you have a very low carb diet, an intense workout can turn out to be very difficult to handle because glycogen stores are low. Energy levels are also affected by sleep patterns, when you have the most energy during the day, and hydration.
When you workout hard, especially with heavy weights, the body is in a catabolic environment, which can break down muscle tissue to use it as energy. A solid pre-workout meal can prevent muscle breakdown and improve energy repair and recovery.
if you are on a fat loss program, you must budget in the calories of your pre-workout meal, having an appreciation for the calorie implications of your pre and post-workout meals can be very helpful for you. As a solid pre-workout meal during a fat loss program. You should experiment with the timing to suit your individual needs.
If you are fueling for overall performance for an intense athletic event, more carbs should be added. For muscle building, a larger pre-workout meal combined with a pre-workout protein shake can be very helpful.
