Muscles Use them or lose them

 
  • Your face has more than 30 muscles that help you smile, look surprised, sad, or unhappy.
  • Eye muscles are the busiest, moving more than 100,000 times a day.
  • Jaw muscles can provide about 200 pounds of force to bring the back teeth together for chewing.
  • Muscles make up about a 40 percent of your body weight. Nearly 85 percent of the heat produced by the body is the result of muscle contraction.
  • Without muscles, your body would be just a bag of bones.
  • You have more than 640 muscles and they allow you to breathe, speak, smile, shake hands, blink, chew your food, and digest your food. Life as you know it would not be possible without muscles.
You have both voluntary and involuntary muscles. You choose when you use voluntary muscles, like raising your hand or walking across the room. Involuntary muscles are automatically controlled by the brain so you don’t have to think about breathing and other bodily functions.

The body has three types of muscles:
  • Skeletal muscles are voluntary and help the body move.
  • Smooth muscles are involuntary and located inside internal organs such as the stomach and intestines.
  • Cardiac muscle is found only in the heart and also is involuntary.
If you don’t use these muscles and don’t exercise regularly your muscles start getting weaker and you start loosing them. It is essential to keep a healthy and efficient muscular system, particularly as you age.

If the muscles that cross joints are working well, they the joints will work more efficiently and you’ll have less pain and fatigue, even if the joint has some arthritis or wear and tear.

“When you were young, your muscles did not need much attention, but as you grow and age, regular exercise, involving some specific muscular conditioning, is important to keep you mobile and agile.

Gradual decrease in muscle mass, especially after age so and with less exercise means:
  • Less strength
  • Slower movements
  • Less co-ordination
  • Less stamina
  • Longer recovery time to catch one’s breath
  • More stiffness and soreness after exercise
  • Altered posture
  • Altered appearance and body proportions
  • Need for fewer calories and diet modification
 
If you want to lose body fat, then you have one option. You must follow a proper diet and you must exercise. There is no way around it. The only option is a healthy diet and regular exercise.

While you lose some weight on the liquid diet and the GM diet, you lose lean body mass, too. These programs are so calorie restrictive that your body goes into a starvation mode. In starvation mode, your body tries to store e very calorie you eat. Then when it does not get enough calories, it starts taking calories from your muscles. After the diet is over, you no longer have the fat burning muscles to help you maintain weight loss. Therefore, you end up gaining the weight back plus a few extra pounds.

That is it. That is the big secret to weight loss. You have to eat healthy and exercise to lose weight. Now all you need is to find a good dietician and a proper fitness centre to workout.
