Secrets Concealed by "Before-&-After"
by Ron Brown,
author of The Body Fat
You may have seen a picture showing some winners of the Body of Work
Physique Transformation Contest, sponsored by a supplement company. These
people obviously worked very hard for 12 weeks, dieting and exercising to
improve their bodies. They deserve congratulations! But, there is something
these impressive photos do not reveal. Can you guess what it is?
Before-&-after photos alone can't reveal if a person has the skill to
keep fat off! Statistically, the odds are over 19:1 that all these people will
gradually return to the body fat level in their before-photo! Some will return a
lot less gradually than others!
Depressing, isn't it? But, it doesn't have to be that way when one applies
the principles of weight management. However, one doesn't acquire these skills
just by going on a 12-week diet or by swallowing so-called fat-burning
supplements The skills necessary to keep body fat off are very different then
Unfortunately, the company that runs the contest and guides the contestants'
training and dieting (including selling them the company's supplements) doesn't
also provide them with a guide to the principles of weight management. Where can
you learn these principles and improve your long-term slim chance? Right
here at bodyfatguide.com.
Additionally, the company shows a picture of a fellow who claims to have
gained 32 pounds of fat-free muscle in 12 weeks. But, fitness expert Covert
Baily says the maximum amount of muscle a person can synthesize in one week,
without also gaining fat, is one pound. Assuming the company's claims are
verifiable, what is the explanation for this fellow's spectacular rate of muscle
gain...besides taking steroids?
People who have burned off large amounts of muscle mass while crash dieting
or fasting often quickly regain muscle mass when they increase their calorie
intake. Sometimes referred to as muscle memory, this rate of rapid muscle
mass replenishment should not be confused with new muscle growth. It takes much
longer to gain new levels of muscle mass than it does to regain mass you
recently burned off.
Did this fellow burn off lots of muscle previous to the shooting of his
before-photo? Who knows for sure? But, although he should be commended for
working hard to achieve his gain, it would be deceptive to think he could
sustain such a rapid rate of growth beyond mere replenishment of previously
burned-off muscle. Once muscle is fully replenished, trying to force an
accelerated rate of muscle gain at the same pace will probably make you fat! For
more information see: Muscle Mass Myths.
