I dont want to bulk up, will lifting weights bulk me up?
Not if that isn’t your goal. Weight training will increase muscle size to meet the demand of the stress being placed on the muscle. However, you will not look like a bodybuilder. Muscle burns calories, tones and shapes the body.
I only eat 2-3 times a day why can’t I lose weight?
You are actually causing the body to hold extra bodyfat by not eating enough! You must feed the body QUALITY NUTRIENTS on a consistent basis everyday to lose bodyfat, elevate energy and feel better. You should strive for 5-6 meals a day to keep your metabolism operating at a higher rate.
How long before I start to get results?
You will start to change almost immediately on the inside as your body’s metabolic processes adapt to the changes brought on by exercise. You will feel the changes before you start to notice them on the outside. You can expect to notice subtle changes in about 4 -6 weeks, others will start to notice in 6-8 weeks and dramatic changes will occur in 10-12 weeks.
