8 Foods To Pack On Muscle

Men’s Health is very straight forward with what you need to do to build muscle.  Oxygen Magazine had an interesting article a few years ago about how to lose weight like a man.  It was funny how men can and will just do what you are supposed to.  More exercise – shoot some hoops.  Eat better – cut out the fast food and junk food.  Build muscle – up the reps and the weight.  I wish I had that determination!

Check out the 8 foods here!

Do I Have To Eat Breakfast If I’m Not Hungry?

Q: If I’m not hungry in the morning, do I have to eat breakfast?

A: Most nutrition experts believe that it’s important to start your day with a healthy breakfast, and lots of research bears this out. For instance, a 2005 study showed that women who did not eat breakfast took in an average of 100 calories more per day than women who did, and had 10 percent higher levels of insulin, 9 percent higher total cholesterol, and 17 percent higher LDL (“bad”) cholesterol than they would have if they’d regularly eaten morning meals. At that rate, these women could expect to put on a full 10 pounds over the course of a year and to increase their risk of heart disease and diabetes. Having said that, there are people who simply have no appetite in the morning. If your current eating pattern keeps you energized (and doesn’t cause overeating at night), then perhaps you really aren’t a breakfast person. If that’s the case, you may enjoy breakfast at any point during the day or skip it completely and double up on an afternoon snack.
