Does Bulking Ruin Your Gains?

In order to gain muscle fast, newbies are often encouraged to follow the “see food diet”. In other words, when you see food you should just eat it. One is encouraged to go on huge binges at fast food restaurants like KFC and McDonalds, and drink large cups of over sweetened beverages in an attempt to gain muscle. Little do those who do this know, they are impairing their health and sabotaging their progress in the gym.

The aim of bulking is basically to increase the amount of calories one consumes, which is supposed to convert to muscle gains. However, most times this is not the case. When one partakes in bulking one is prone to overeat carbohydrates because that is the easiest form of food to intake. These carbohydrate-laden food items are usually full of sugar, which has a negative impact on one’s testosterone level.

Sugar is an enemy of testosterone, and when one has too much of it, levels of this hormone in the body will diminish. This is not good for someone wanting to build muscle because low testosterone levels will leave one feeling sluggish, and tired all the time. Inactivity will eventually cause you to put on more fat, as a result of your body’s inability to burn off the extra calories that you have been consuming. Instead of building more muscle you will end up getting fatter. Read this to discover how to break the cycle.

You might ask, why then do bodybuilders advocate bulking if it’s bad for you? The answer is that these bodybuilders take steroids that prevent the unwanted fat accumulation that is the natural result of bulking. Steroids are bad for you because it is an artificial way of obtaining testosterone. This makes your body not feel the need to produce as much natural testosterone as before, since it is obtaining it from an external source. At the end of the day, this is bad for one’s body and health.

What if there was a natural way to boost your body’s production of testosterone in a way that would result in more muscle gains and energy? Well, the answer is the Man Diet. I have found this to be the most comprehensive, uncomplicated and straightforward manual designed to help men boost their testosterone levels, and thereby gain more muscle.
