Instead of blaming your fitness routines or workout schedules on why you are or are not gaining or losing, its time the focus is put more on what you eat, or better yet do not eat!
In one recent study, research showed that low carbohydrate levels damaged muscle protein production after their trainings. There was a measure of the level of activity in the genes that control the growth of muscles after an intense workout with normal or lower than normal stages of glycogen’s The outcome is that carbohydrates promote very intense workouts and do stimulate the genes that allow muscles to grow.
Because of the extremely low level of carbohydrates in their bodies, it negatively influenced the amount of weight they could gain or lose and also affected the amount of muscle they hoped to build. Most people who try to avoid eating carbohydrates in their diets are also getting very low amounts of intake of calories. The bottom line is that if you don’t intake enough foods with calories, you’re not going to build any muscle
In fact, carbohydrates are extremely important, maybe even more, than any other type of protein or fat you put in your mouth to eat. One has to remember that when training vigorously and intense with weights because you’re trying to have growth in the muscle and gain or lose weight, the manner in which you eat is going to be very different than a normal person who does not workout.
As far as carbohydrates for weight loss, it’s a pretty clear fact that simple carbohydrates such as sugar, or foods loaded with sugar are very bad for weight loss. That being said, the complex carbohydrates are not so bad and are even seen as great for dieting. They have a bit more calories then other foods but are also more filling. These are foods such as cereals, beans, rice, and pastas.
