Length of Undereating continued

What is considered undereating for some people may be considered overeating for others. For undereating to have its maximum effect on your body, eat in a controlled way where you regulate the amount of food and the length of undereating period according to your specific needs. According to Mark Mattson, Chief of the Laboratory of Neurosciences at the National Institute on Aging in Baltimore, Maryland, studies on mice revealed that feeding cycles of fasting one...

Muscle Gain and Fat Loss at the Cellular Level

Lo gain muscle and lose fat effectively, you need to understand the basic principles of growth and fat burning. The most basic, self-contained unit of life in your body is the cell, where everything begins. Growth and fat burning depend on the body's ability to activate certain cellular factors that induce protein synthesis and fat breakdown. A nearly endless number of cellular and systemic events are required for the repair, synthesis, and buildup of tissue, besides turning adipose fat (i.e.,...

Info

The Single Biological Principle of Muscle Gain and Fat Loss M uscle gain and fat loss are compelling subjects that are pertinent to almost every aspect of life. In spite of overwhelming information about these subjects, including numerous scientific studies and anecdotal cases, the biological mechanisms that induce muscle gain and fat loss are quite simple. The purpose of this book is to shed new light on the distinct ways in which muscle and fat tissues operate and to assist people in making...

Negative Feedback Control

Like many other forces that are necessary to sustain life, anabolic and catabolic processes are naturally regulated in your body through a mechanism of negative feedback. Negative feedback is a most efficient biological process that maintains the balance between two opposing forces. Many, if not most, of the body's life functions, such as the regulation of blood sugar, the stabilization of blood pressure, the assimilation of nutrients, and the activation of hormone synthesis are based on...

Insulins Essential Role in Muscle Gain and Fat Loss

Insulin is probably the most misunderstood hormone in the body. Insulin's actions are often claimed to be the main culprit for the current epidemic of weight gain. But what many people fail to realize is that, despite its reputation as a fat loss inhibitor, insulin's biological functions are critically important for muscle gain as well as for fat loss. Nevertheless, many people still choose to follow low-carb diets, hoping to minimize insulin activity by chronically restricting carb consumption...

Anabolism and Catabolism

Your life, biologically speaking, is defined by your metabolism. The process of turning matter into energy and energy back into matter is what makes a living creature superior to any mechanical machine. Your body is programmed to recreate itself every minute of your life. Substances in the form of air, food, water, carbon dioxide, and waste are constantly moving in and out of your body. The process in which material is built is called anabolism, and the process in which material is broken down...

The Cocktail Hormone Impact

Steroids act together, somewhat like a well-mixed cocktail of hormones. Derived from the gonadals and the adrenal glands, they indirectly enhance or inhibit each other's actions. The adrenal cortex produces three classes of steroid hormones that play important roles in the anabolic process leading to muscle gain. Some of the adrenal hormones, such as cortisol and aldosterone, are generally considered to be the bad guys by bodybuilders and athletes. However, as you'll soon see, there are no good...
