You can lose weight without working out by using Juice cleanses and extreme dieting. This seems to be what many women are doing. What you need to remember is that fat loves an inactive body. The weight lost in dieting, has a much greater chance of returning.
What should you do to avoid this? Well, you can’t always avoid it, but building muscle is your best defense against gaining fat. Muscle burns fat. The more muscle you have, the more fat you can lose and/or keep at bay.
So why are women so afraid to build muscle?
The number one reason I often hear is ‘I don’t want to look too bulky or muscular’.
Okay, maybe that could happen if you were hitting the gym 4-5 days a week, lifting heavy, and being consistent with several years strength training; then yeah, you’ll probably look very muscular or bulky Lol. Especially, if relatively low body fat is involved.
Look, it’s not easy for men to build muscle and it’s even harder for women. Women, produce a lot less testosterone than men so building muscle won’t be easy. Also, building muscle comes at a much higher cost than it is to lose fat but it’s completely worth it.
Here’s my suggestion if you’re concerned about looking too muscular. Perform two strength training sessions per week for 45 mins. This could be weighted training, yoga, Pilates etc. At very least, become strong enough to lift and hold your own body weight. You won’t look like that girl in the pic unless that’s your goal. Trust me, it would have to be your goal because it’s not easy to look like a female power lifter or bodybuilder.Follow Me on IG
