Top Tips to Keep in Shape
Eat five or six meals a day
Grazing rather than gorging boosts your metabolic rate, reduces hunger by stabilising blood sugar levels, and keeps your energy levels high. The easiest way to do this is to have your breakfast, lunch and dinner as normal, then use a meal replacement bar, such as a Maximuscle Promax Meal bar, as a mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack.
Include protein in each meal
You'll tone up and lose fat faster when you eat protein every few hours. You can use Maximuscle Promax or LA Muscle Whey Protein at any time of the day to raise the protein content of your diet. Try having it as a shake at breakfast, adding it to your cereal, or mixing it with yoghurt for a quick and easy protein rich bedtime snack to help combat muscle breakdown at night.
Take a protein shake five to ten minutes after exercise
Scientific studies show that taking protein after exercise could help you build muscle size and strength faster. Because it's digested so quickly, Mximuscle Promax is perfect for use immediately after exercise, perfect for enhancing your muscle definition goals.
Use a fat-burner to speed up weight loss
Its frustrating go to the gym regularly, eat the right foods, and see little or nothing in the way of results. Fat-burners, such as Maximuscle Thermobol, will help you get better results faster from your diet and exercise routine.
Use creatine for extra muscle size and strength
Creatine is one of the most popular sports nutrition products available for anyone who wants more muscle definition and size. Studies show that people using creatine in combination with a weight training programme could gain muscle size and strength faster. How does Creatine work? Creatine can help you train more intensely and increase your strength so you can do more reps with the same weight.
Don't neglect the essential fats
As well as being vital to your health, omega-3 fats play a vital role in supporting your muscle-building and fat-burning goals. If you want to increase your intake of these essential fats, eat more deep coloured cold-water fish such as salmon, trout, mackerel and sardines. If you're not a regular fish-eater, a product like Maximuscle Maxi-EFA provides all the omega-3s you need in a few convenient capsules.
