“Cheat” your way to faster fat loss and muscle growth
This last weekend I ventured out to try something new for my cheat meal - a local taco joint called Tacos TJ. I had a steak quesadilla (I know, I should have gotten the tacos…) and it was delicious. My wife thought so too - we’ll be back.
Some people think a cheat meal is all about a psychological break - you’ve been sticking to your diet and you deserve a reward!
But that’s not the reason I do it.
Your body is an adaptation machine - and if you feed it the same calories for too long, it’ll adapt to that new calorie range (and slow down).
Which is why you can lose weight for a few weeks and then things seem to stall… Your metabolism has adapted to fewer calories and slowed down.
The trick is to throw it a curveball. Give it a lot of calories in a short period of time and force a new type of adaptation - a forced method for a faster metabolism.
Which is the same thing we’re trying to do when we’re building muscle too - right?
We’re forcing new adaptation by adding extra weight to the bar, hitting more reps, or pushing ourselves harder than we did the last time.
The trick is to make sure we’re supporting that adaptation, that muscle building process properly.
Which is the recovery side of things - and the better the recovery, the better the muscle building.
So if you're wanting to build muscle, you want to prioritize recovery as much as possible.
Which means doing things like: getting enough sleep, taking time away from the gym, stretching and rolling out sore muscles, getting enough protein each day, and taking a high quality creatine like Creagon.
That’s because Creagon helps your muscles recover faster and grow stronger by hydrating muscle cells, decreasing muscle inflammation, and even increasing satellite cell activity (leading to further muscle growth).
In other words, it helps force many of those key adaptations needed for muscle growth.
If you’re wanting to kick up your recovery, get stronger, and force the adaptations needed for muscle growth - you can grab yourself a bottle here:
