Bottled marinades and salad dressings can be loaded with unhealthy fats, artificial ingredients, calories, and sugar! Exercise is the only way to build muscles, but nutrition plays a critical role in building muscle mass, and sugar is the number one ‘bad boy’ on the list. Whether you are trying to lose weight, tone your muscles, strengthen, or rehabilitate from an injury, sugar gets in the way!
Eating adequate amounts of protein and a low carbohydrate diet can help build muscles and change your metabolism, enabling your body to burn its own fat for fuel instead of using sugars and starches for energy. Your body needs protein to not only build muscles, but to maintain the muscles you have already developed.
