If you’re one to look in the mirror only to knit-pick at the reflection, this one is for you.  The good news is you can take control of your physique.  Here are five ways to do it; take one, master it and move on the to the next.

1. Stimulate Lean Muscle   

Resistance training.  It stimulates muscle protein synthesis and this effect is increased with the addition of post-workout protein and amino acids (leucine in particular). The more muscle you have, the more calories are required to maintain that muscle, even at rest.  The result; you burn more calories throughout the day.

2. Clean Up

Clean up your diet.  It’s not magic, it’s called self-control.  Get rid of the processed foods in your kitchen and fill the fridge with whole foods like produce, lean proteins, natural fats, and whole grains.  If you want your efforts in the gym to reveal a ripped bod, you must fuel your body with nutrient dense foods.  You simply cannot out-work a poor diet.

3. Enhance Recovery

Sore muscles hurt but in a good way; it means you’re putting in work.  However, if you don’t refuel properly post-workout your subsequent workout performance could be compromised. To go strong all week long, multiple studies show that consuming a post-workout protein and carb source within ~45 minutes will help repair muscle cells.

4. Support Digestion

Digestion is the process by which food and drink are broken down into their smallest parts so the body can use them to build and nourish cells and to provide energy.  The sight of absorption for many of these nutrients is the GI (gastrointestinal tract).  A healthy GI tract supports the transfer of nutrients from foods and supplements to the appropriate sight for utilization.
