5 Nutrition and Fitness Mistakes Most People (Women) Make - Mistake #3

5 Nutrition and Fitness Mistakes Most People (Women) Make - Mistake #3

A few weeks ago, I posted Mistakes 1 & 2. 1. I Need to Lose Weight; and 2. I’m going on the “BLANK” diet. You can find those on my blog if you want to take a look. Today, I wanted to talk about Mistake #3:

3) Lifting Weights 🏋️‍♂️ Will Make Me Bulky

👉Gaining muscle mass comes from a combination of heavy weight training, and an excess amount of calories. If you’re only lifting weights 3-4 days a week, and you're not eating more calories a day than you burn, you probably won't see a substantial amount of muscle growth 💪🏻.

👉Women 👩‍🦰 don’t have the same hormone profile as men 👨‍🦱, which makes it difficult for us to gain enough lean mass to look bulky.

👉Don’t mistake body fat for “bulk” from strength training. Your muscle underneath will be growing, and you may think you are getting bulkier, but your body composition is just changing. You start to build muscle before you lose the fat!

That’s where knowing your Macros (Protein🥩, Carbs🍚 and Fats🥑) for your goals really makes a huge difference in your results. If you’re interested in finding out what your macros should be for your goals, activity levels and diet preferences, check out my Macros Blueprint by clicking the link in my bio. If you’re not sure about the macro counting, then check out my FREE E-Book-“Introduction to Macros”. It will not give you an exact macro count, but will get you acclimated to hand portions and eating your daily servings of Protein🥚, Carbs🍠 and Fats🥜.
