Recently, I have been adding a fish oil supplement to my diet. Over the weeks I have seen my body change in many positive ways. However, I didn’t know if this had anything to do with the new Omega fats I added to my diet. I decided to research it, and low and behold, I found what I was looking for. This article written by “I look like fit,” explains it all. If you thought Omega fats were amazing before, this article will have you hooked!
When it comes to building more muscle mass, many people tend to focus on protein and carbohydrate intake, unwisely forgetting to take fat into account. The problem is, without eating a moderate amount of healthy fat, you’re denying yourself the possibility of achieving what Hans and Frans might call maximum pumpitude.
A study that appears in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise reveals that guys who ate a normal diet that included a moderate amount of fat gained five pounds more muscle than guys who followed a low-fat diet. And, the guys in the first group also experienced an 86 percent increase in strength over the second group.
Fats are a necessary part of a well-rounded diet, provided they are being sourced from healthy foods such as nuts, avocados, olive oil, seeds, and flaxseed oil. So, hear me now and believe me later … get your fats if you want to pump up!!
Even though this article pertaines to men, women need muscle just as much (if not more then men). Muscle is the foutain of youth; due to the fact that it produces growth hormone. This hormone helps keep you looking and feeling younge by regenerating cells.
If you are worried about increasing your fat intake with omega fats then I have a good solution for you. Take out all the bad fats that are in unnecessary foods such as mayonaise, cheese, and fried foods and replace them with healthy fats. This way you don’t increase your overall fat intake, calorie consumption and gain weight.
