Why You Should Stay Lean

If you look at a bodybuilder who goes on a zero-carbohydrate diet for a contest, you'll notice a very common phenomenon that happens immediately afterward: He gets fat. It's inevitable because it's a protective mcch-

anism; the body doesn't want to lose all of its bodyfat. As far as the body is concerned, it's starving, its dying. And it's going to protect itself against this happening again in the future by putting on as much fat as possible. The best thing to do if you desire to stay defined year-round is to get lean slowly over a period of time and then maintain that lower bodyfat level sanely, by eating a well-balanced diet.

There's another reason to stay lean as much of the time as possible. Contrary to what some would have you believe, fat adds nothing in the way of offering an advantage to body strength. In fact, it hinders body strength. It has been discovered that intramuscular fat—that is, fat in between muscle fibers—actually hinders contraction, which serves to make you weaker. The leaner you are, the stronger you'll be.
