Competitive Bodybuilder Inspires Self-Improvement (Part 2) :

Competitive Bodybuilder Inspires Self-Improvement (Part 2) :
The third section of "Becoming a Stronger Person" takes the reader through an explanation of nutrition, how to build muscle and to lose weight, and the proper nutrients, serving sizes, and calories people need in their diets. Wade offers practical advice here, explaining why fad diets do not work and how people can lose weight without starving or hurting their bodies. "I always tell people who are interested in losing weight and improving their physical appearance, 'That's great, but your number one goal is to improve your health.'" He wisely notes, "I always want to achieve the best look possible, but I will never sacrifice health to get there." Wade uses practical analogies throughout to illustrate his common sense approach to health and nutrition, as in the following passage:

Smaller frequent meals can also have a positive effect on your metabolism by keeping it elevated to burn more body fat while resting. For example, when you have a fire in the fireplace that starts burning more slowly, you add wood, but if you add too much wood at once, it will smolder it and put it out. If you only add a little wood at a time, you keep an even burning hot fire, which resembles what your body's metabolism does with smaller frequent feedings as opposed to large ones.
