should also know that muscles responds exactly to how it is
nourished and used the following are some characteristics of muscles
muscles is our body's furnace, which uses fat and
carbohydrates for fuel. It means that it can use a large amount of calories under right
condition. Every pound of Lean Body Mass uses 12 calories a day.) So if you want to loss
weight (fat), the higher proportion of muscles tissue you
have, the faster you reach your goal.
Also, muscles is the engine that powers our body's movement
and determines our performance, our shape and posture. Muscles
tone helps to eliminate aches and pains.
muscles becomes a source of protein and carbohydrates when
you're not eating. That means muscles will actually be broken
down and used as fuel. Losing muscles is common, difficult to
detect and somewhat like dying slowly.
As muscles tissue makes up about 30 - 35% of the Lean Body
Mass of the average adult female and approximately 40 - 45% of those of male, the more
Lean Body Mass we have, the fitter we are. And every pound of muscles
can help us lose weight (fat), because it burns 12 calories a day.
In our resting state, when we are not moving about or exercising, we use up and burn
about 1 cal per hour for every 2 pounds of lean body mass (about 2.2 pounds of body
weight). This is referred to as your basal metabolic rate (BMR).
After we've looked at muscles, let's look at the Fat.
