Muscles Weigh More Than Body Fat


Weight lifters appear much thinner than they actually weigh. Even individuals who aren't weight lifters - yet who have an exercise routine to build muscles will weigh more while looking thinner.

That's because muscle mass weighs heavier than fat mass. And a body containing more muscle mass is generally a much healthier body.

Protein Builds Muscles

Protein rich foods assist in building muscles - and can be found in a variety of healthy foods.

Best food sources include: lean meats, beans, eggs, fish & seafood and cheese.

But do keep in mind that a healthy body depends upon many other essential vitamins and nutrients - not just protein.

Protein-rich diets can also be harmful to certain individuals, such as heart patients and diabetics. Before taking on a daily diet rich in protein, you should always discuss the plan with your doctor before proceeding.

Exercise Builds Muscle

Working your muscles will make them stronger while assisting the body in ridding harmful toxins. You don't have to lift weights or engage in high-endurance, high-stress activity to become stronger. Even a pleasant walk or hike each day goes a long way in making your body healthier, and stronger.
