If you don’t eat, you’ll get weak, and look bad.

In recent times, the need to “lift” has become more and more prominent.
And that’s good!
Slowly but surely people are realising that endless hours of cardio is not only mind numbingly soul destroying, but it’s actually not great for our body. Not just because of damage through tons of repetitive movement, but because it often means we’re neglecting the fun part….pumping iron!
Ok not all of you will enjoy that feeling of lifting heavy things as much as me but I hope most of you are doing it in some way shape or form.
What I want to talk about today though is not so much about gaining muscle, but simply keeping what you have.
You see, we need muscles.
I’m not talking in an Arnold Schwarzenegger, tearing up a yellow pages, 28 egg a day eating kinda way, nor am I saying that you need to be a walking egg box. If they’re hiding under a SMALL layer of body fat that’s cool! As long as there is a decent amount of the stuff to help us move, protect our joints and help us fight off the baddies.
With more muscle comes the need for more food. A humongous topic and one for another day but here’s the thing. If your goal is to get trimmer / more toned (hate that word) / less body fat / look better in your bikini,
