I'm not trying to be Superman without taking baby steps first. I have been slowly and I mean slowly converting to a good exercise habit and diet.
What I do is starches, push-ups and sit-ups, yoga, walking and running, biking, and playing sports. I have lost a lot of weight and gained more
muscle. But I'm not buff. More athletic in appearance. Should I eat more protein and work to make my muscles stronger?
To build muscle you need to keep your body in an anabolic state which effectively means consuming more calories per day than you burn, proteins are
the building blocks of muscle and the general rule from a bodybuilding perspective is to consume 1g of protein per lb of body weight per day.
Cut out fatty, fast, junk foods. Eat cleanly and I'd recommend supplementing your diet with a good quality whey protein simply for ease, try that and
crank up your cardio slightly. Three times a week is plenty if your eating healthy and training with weights, give it a go - watch the change.
