I don’t know if you have noticed that those friends who have fast muscle growth are basically in a positive mood. The state of joking and joking makes them enter a virtuous circle of muscle gain. But why do you say that? What is the basis?
This is going to be the opposite. I myself have recently fallen into an emotional circle. The state of mourning was caused by the fact that the whole head was as painful as a burst after pulling out his wisdom teeth some time ago. Naturally, I can’t eat anything, and my muscles swish away. Then, because of this, I was very impatient, and I couldn't keep up with the nutrition, and I was weak. In just a week, I felt very depraved. I fell into such a vicious circle, I couldn’t eat, and my muscles were depressed...
Why do I lose my muscles when I lose weight when I lose weight? In addition to my diet can’t keep up, on the other hand, my nervousness, depression, and anxiety irritate something called “cortisol” in my body. It is a hormone that consumes muscles when secreted too much, and induces the body to produce fat! If you have such a phenomenon, then you must learn to properly regulate your emotions.
In addition, some pits that can be avoided are also summarized for everyone.
1 morning fasting aerobic
This is the secret weapon for many people to brush fat. But the morning is when the cortisol level is the highest in a day. Although fasting aerobic can effectively burn fat, but because of the lack of sugar for energy and the high cortisol level, a large amount of muscle is lost while consuming fat. This is one thing. An exchange that is not worth the loss: you lose more muscle than fat!
2 low-calorie diet
Long-term low-calorie diet, especially low-carb water, can also increase cortisol. The body's self-protection mechanism is turned on, and cortisol is "awakened" to break down muscle tissue to provide energy. The most frightening thing is that it in turn stimulates appetite, especially sweets, which can be said to be a vicious circle. So look at those low-fat and low-carb people, sooner or later they will crash in front of the cake and bread.
a lot of training
Both aerobic and iron lifting can cause the cortisol to rise. When the amount of exercise is moderate, it can be controlled within the normal range, but when the time is too long, the cortisol will continue to rise. Studies have shown that people who train twice a day have significantly higher levels of cortisol than those who train once a day. You can't help but practice more when you are playing to lose fat. In fact, the effect may not be good!
often stay up late
Cortisol will soar when staying up late, but it's okay once or twice, but it will be relieved when you get a rest. However, if you don’t sleep well for a long time, you will be over. The basal level of cortisol is raised, and muscle loss is certain. And it will not only lose muscle, but also gain fat.
often angry and nervous
Cortisol is a stress hormone. For example, when you are frightened, stressed, or stressed, it will stimulate its secretion. Every time you are angry, every time you are nervous, it will increase. If you are often angry and often nervous, it will continue to increase. So, in order to protect your muscles, really don't get angry at every turn.
You said I said cortisol too terribly? It really didn’t scare you because it was too high:
not only loses muscle, but also gains fat
not only grow fat, but also store stubborn fat
is more dangerous than increasing body fat. Excessive cortisol will also cause visceral fat cells to differentiate, increase the number of cells, and lead to central obesity, which is to become an apple-shaped body, and stubborn fat is more difficult to lose.
Most fitness novices, low-carbon, low-calorie diets, excessive exercise, did have some effects at the beginning, but it was really overloaded, really painful, and fell into a vicious circle after a period of time ☟
Fat loss-long-term aerobic + low-carb diet-high stress, poor mood-elevated cortisol-accumulate fat, lose muscle-then continue to use ta's wrong method to lose fat, continue to lose muscle...
Is there any way to keep cortisol from rising? Frankly speaking, it is difficult because hormones follow the circadian rhythm and are beyond our control. I can only advise you to stay up late and don't eat too low calories. But in the following two periods, it will rise to the peak, no one can control:
When I wake up in the morning
After a long, high-intensity training
