Can you lose weight on a low carb diet? Is low carb diet harmful?

Using low carb diets to lose weight (only eat lean meat and vegetables) is very harmful to your health. 

If you eat continuously will destroy the digestive system, depleting the body because of metabolic disorders. This diet encourages lean meat intake, absolutely abstaining from carbohydrates, fats and fruits.

Low-carb diets to treat and prevent cancer are based on the fact that cancer cells cannot survive without sugar. So when we cut off the entire sugar supply, the cancer cells starve. You must absolutely abstain from carbohydrates (because the carbohydrates turn into sugar very quickly in the body), of course, leaving out the entire menu of soft drinks, cakes, including fresh juices.

Choose avocado - because it does not contain sugar, it contains a lot of good fat, and you can drink lemon juice without any sweet stuff. In order to provide the body with enough nutrients (replacing starch and fruit), one must eat a lot of fat (saturated and unsaturated), so that it provides 60-70% of the body's calories - that is, to eat. 120 - 150 ml of these oils / day (preferably fat from cold pressed coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, and flaxseed oil topped with cottage cheese or unsweetened yogurt, absolutely "forbidden" oils) produced by industrial lines at high temperatures and oils using chemicals in the pressing process).

You can eat animal-protein meats (in moderation), fish, cheese, fresh chicken eggs and it's best to eat foods that provide plant-based protein (like beans) green, black beans, red, white, but do not eat a lot of soy and its preparations). If possible, eat a lot of raw nuts like: pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, black and white sesame seeds, almonds, walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds (minced) - because medium nuts are high in fat, provide protein for the body).

Do not eat peanuts that gone bad because it may have some fungi that cause cancer. Keep in mind that eating a variety of vegetables - it's best to eat raw and mixed salad with coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil, and should drink 3-4 cups of lemon juice with extra lemon juice to help your body detox ( drink before eating at least 30-60 minutes).

In-depth Workout Weight Bench Reviews

 

What is A Weight Bench?

A weight bench is a piece of equipment that is similar to a normal (e.g. park) bench, but is designed for use in weight training.

Weight Bench Benefits

A good weight bench will allow you to perform a number of compound exercises by sitting, lying, or standing on the weight bench while adjusting the racks that come with it.

How much weight should a beginner bench press

Bench press:

Warm up: 1 set of 20 repetitions

Follow up: 1 x 12 repetitions

If you a complete beginner, first use the bar only. Normally an Olympic bar will weight 45 pounds by itself and a standard bar will weight about 20 to 25 pounds. Most commercial gyms will use an Olympic barbell. Most home gyms will use a standard barbell.

After 20 repetitions you may add some weight (5 to 10 pounds) on each side of the bar. I suggest trying to add if you feel comfortable doing so. Start with 12 repetitions and then gradually add more weights as you progress. Keep a journal.

Remember to use clamps at the end of your barbell, for the weight not to slid off.

Best Supplement Reviews | For Working Out | Body Building | Muscle Repair | Weight Loss | Weight Gain

Are you confused with all the products on the current market and don't know what to take to maximize your results? In this article, we'll help you to understand about different types of supplements out there and also pick some of the top products for you to choose from.

Pre-Workout Supplements 

These products give you the energy to push it to the limit. The right pre-workout supplement can provide your muscles with a strength and power boost, allowing you to get those last, vital reps. It will also give you the training energy and endurance to get the most out of your training session.

Side effects: high doses of niacin (500+mg) may result in itching, flushing, and stomach upset. Pre workout supplements are often used in combination with High-intensity (HIIT) trainings which can increase your blood pressure. If  you have high blood pressure, you should consult your doctor first about taking these.

Creatine Supplements

This is the single best nutritional supplement that you need to get bigger and stronger. Creatine has the ability to turn ADP back into ATP, which is the energy system that the muscles use push weight. The more ATP in the muscle cell, the more reps you can perform. This directly increases the tension on the muscle, which is the key to muscle growth.

Side effects: creatine is a natural substance used in the body to make ATP or energy. Anecdotal side effects include stomach cramps and muscle cramps, nausea, diarrhea, weight gain, kidney stress and dehydration. Actual research, however, refutes these anecdotal claims.

Beta Alanine Supplements

Beta Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that helps build muscle strength and power. When beta-alanine is ingested, it turns into the molecule carnosine, which acts as an acid buffer in the body. It is a good alternative to creatine if you do not want the water weight but still need increased recovery and is used for moderate- to high-intensity cardiovascular exercise performance.

Beta-alanine supplementation can cause paresthesia, a potentially uncomfortable but ultimately harmless tingling of the skin that commonly affects the face but has also been reported in the abdomen, chest, and extremities. Paresthesia typically occurs when too great a dose of beta-alanine is taken acutely.

Amino Acid Supplements

After your workout, you need amino acids in order to repair and rebuild your hard trained muscles. Protein in food is broken down into amino acids, which are used by the body for various purposes, including building the type of protein needed to build and maintain muscle tissue.

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) : leucine, isoleucine, and valine are for people with low dietary protein intake as BCAA supplementation can promote muscle protein synthesis and increase muscle growth over time.

Anabolic Supplements

Also known as anabolic steroids. Those supplements have testosterone-like effects on the body that can help increase muscle size as well as enhance muscle mass.

Common side effects with anabolic steroids may include: aggression, rage, violence, heart attack and stroke, acne/oily skin, hair loss, liver disease, kidney disease, irritability, depression.

Protein Supplements | Protein Supplements for Women

The three common ones are whey, soy, and casein protein. Whey, a milk protein that has a high level of branched-chain amino acids , is the most commonly used as it digests fast and gets to your muscles rapidly to start building muscle.

For women building lean muscle tissue from weight training and taking a protein supplement are smart ways to promote fat loss. Protein powder is mixed up as a protein shake.

The amount you take should be based on body weight. Aim to take a gram of protein per pound of lean body mass per day. Protein powder in itself isn't bad for your liver and kidneys, but consuming too much of it may cause a strain on these organs. If your body doesn't break down urea, the nitrogenous compound from protein, ask your doctor before consuming.

Supplements For Weight Loss 

The actual secret to lose weight is simple: it's all about your exercise routine, nutrition and supplementation plan.

Essential Supplements for Body Building

  • Whey Protein.
  • Branch Chain Amino Acids.
  • L-Glutamine.
  • Creatine.
  • Omega-3 Fish Oil.
  • Vitamin/Mineral Supplement.

Supplements for Bulking Up  

  • A Mass Gainer
  • Essential Fatty Acids
  • ZMACreatineAmino acids
  • Bcaas
  • Maltrodextrin and Dextrose
  • 5-HTP

Closest Supplement to Steroids 2018

There are NO Safe Steroids whether they are legal or not. Good diet, multivitamin, protein, maybe some creatine and a workout plan are enough.
