Eat in Healthy Portions To Prevent Loss of Muscle
As I’ve mentioned, your body adapts to your eating habits. By eating medium-sized meals throughout the day, you keep your digestive system healthy by making it work in manageable amounts but still keeping up the high calorie lifestyle you need to build muscle from a skinny posterior without having it break down or having indigestion.
The last thing you’d want is a digestive system disorder develop via overeating at buffets, skipping meals, etc. It’s already difficult to build on some muscle effectively as it is, don’t make it harder on your body.
Eat Before Going to Bed
Although our metabolism declines by 20% when we go to sleep, depending on our BMR and RMR our bodies can still cannibalize on our muscle while we sleep if we don’t get enough to eat before we sleep. So, I almost all the time get some some fat-free / sugar-free food to munch on right before going to bed to help ensure my body doesn’t eat away at my hard-earned muscle.
Don’t skip breakfast ever
This is a rule I keep on neglecting as a busy guy who is lazy to wake up way early in the morning to cook breakfast. Thus, whenever I fail to outsource the cooking of breakfast or fail to prepare it the night before, my body suffers from loss of muscle as my handy dandy body composition scale
has told me time and time again.
Stay Healthy and Take Your Vitamins and Minerals
If we get sick, we can’t workout, we will get less appetite, our body will need more nutrition, and we can’t even get to work. It’s a recipe for disaster and a big step back for us skinny guys. So what we need to do is always wash our hands before eating, and take vitamins and minerals to prevent certain infectious diseases. Clean any dengue-carrying mosquito infested areas of the house. Remember, prevention is better than cure.
Perform Your Workouts Properly
Avoid injury by doing the workouts properly. Number 1 rule is no jerky movements. Not only does doing your workout properly help you prevent injuries. It also makes certain that each workout targets and engages the correct target muscle for development.
