How to Get Lean Muscles
It’s one thing to lift weights and eat right to get strong, but it's something completely different to get lean muscles.
To get lean muscles requires making some slight changes to your diet. These changes are nothing drastic or anything to worry about, but when implemented will make a massive difference.
These small changes will help you get lean muscles in no time.
Eat More Protein
By increasing the amount of protein you eat each day, you are providing your muscles with the nutrients it needs to grow and get bigger.
By growing the size of your muscles, they’ll start to become leaner and the fat around the muscles will start to disappear.
PRO TIP: Add a protein shake to your bodybuilding shaker to increase the amount of protein you eat.
Eat Less Carbohydrates
This may sound strange to some, but high-carb diets could be the reason you’re not gaining lean muscle. When you eat a high-carb diet, your liver and muscle glycogen stores become saturated. This means there is no more room for the glucose from carbohydrates to be stored.
This excess glucose will then get stored as fat, mostly around your muscles and stomach. Too many carbs will also cause the body to store excess water which will cover your muscles.
By reducing the amount of carbs you eat each day, you will start to lose the excess water weight and reduce the chance of storing excess fat around your muscles.
Avoid Sugary Drinks
This simple adjustment to your daily eating routine will change your life dramatically – trust us!
By avoiding sugary drinks, you’ll be reducing the amount of sugar you consume each day. By reducing the amount of sugar, you will start to lose weight without doing anything else.
As a result of this, you will start to see your lean muscles appear from underneath the layer of fat they’ve been hiding under!
