Is it possible to build Muscle And Burn Fat WITHOUT Counting Calories? Yes it is possible. It is also possible to build muscle and burn fat while counting calories. Don’t get me wrong, counting calories has its place. If you are a professional athlete and you operate at a fine margin, then you might need to count your daily caloric intake, and even then not all professional athletes do it. However, in my opinion anyway, for the average guy like me and you who is looking to build nice strong lean muscles and keep the fat away, then I really don’t think counting calories matters much.
Instead, I want to offer you a perspective about nutrition and counting calories so you can see where I’m coming from. If you have ever counted calories before while trying to build muscle and lose weight, you know how stressful it is to count calories and stay on a strict diet. I tried to build muscle and lose fat while counting calories and it did indeed get me results, but I felt too stressed out and restricted. In fact, if you are too stressed about counting calories, your body could produce too much cortisol and that is counter productive to what you are trying to do, which is ultimately lose weight and build muscle.
Instead, make your peace with eating healthy food and having a generally healthy lifestyle. I’m personally more concerned with food’s affect on my body and mental state. When you revolve your lifestyle around eating healthy and exercising on regular basis, your mental state will be clear and you will feel more energetic and full of life and vitality. Also, your testosterone levels will be at an optimal level for building muscle, losing fat, and getting all the ladies.
The moral of the story, keep all processed food away, start eating healthy, change your perception about food, and you will never have to count calories for a day, all the while building strong lean big muscles and keeping the ugly fat away from your belly. Oh and also, stay active my friends. There is a saying in Arabic “In movement, there is blessing”.
