Calorie Cycling Basics

Calorie Cycling Basics

Today I want to talk about cycling.

No, not the sport Lance Armstrong was famous for.

I'm also not talking about the drugs Armstrong became infamous for.

Whenever committing yourself to any kind of diet, you need to consider its long-term effects on your health.

Eating all the food in your field of vision will give you the energy you need to build muscle, but you'll end up packing on pounds of fat too.

Starving yourself might work for a few days, but your metabolism would crash within a week. Even a moderate caloric deficit over the course of a few weeks can have negative consequences.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was SUCH a good show. The introduction's theme song remains one of the most recognizable TV show themes.

"Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool..."

What a fantastic program. Honestly, what are kids these days watching instead? Adventure Time? 90s kids clearly had it best.

So, what do Fresh Prince and weightlifting have in common?

Practically nothing to be honest; but the above lyrics have the word "maxing" in them and I will gladly use that as my excuse.
