My question is "why am I still having muscle loss while doing it all right?" I have one of those smart scales and yes I am losing weight, my STRONGER program is tightening and toning for sure. Every day the skeletal muscle declines a little. I follow Dr. Anna Cabeca's keto green 16 program, strength train twice a week, HiiT 20 minutes twice a week, all other days are gardening and gratitude walking. Gotta be something I am missing.
How long does it take to gain a pound of muscle? - Dawn
I answer these two questions from listeners in this episode. If you’re experiencing muscle lose too these suggestions may help.
Other Things to Check
And for Dawn who asks how long it takes to gain a pound of muscle, it’s almost impossible to predict that. And yes, after 50 it’s much easier to lose than to maintain and to gain.
You must be using adequate stimulus, not more exercise but the right exercise, the right rest, and adequate protein and overall micronutrient density to build muscle.
You’ve got to sleep and prioritize it. So all things said… not as long as you think, but you have to make a consorted effort once you understand exactly what the right steps are and do them.
