Steroids=six packs=healthy body- A huge myth people have is that increasing the amount of supplements (be it protein or any other pills ) or even steroids, for that matter, are going to hasten the process of making you fit and muscular. If you are not exercising and following proper nutrition, nothing is going to work. People need to get educated with the right guidance for a fit and healthy body. Mind you, six packs don't necessarily indicate a healthy body. Learn about Junaid s own daily workout and gym routine and diet.

Fad diets and why you shouldn t follow them

Every individual is different and so are their needs and dreams. A bodybuilder will eat more of carbs and proteins than a physique athlete. But just because you consider a body builder as your idol, you can't follow his diet. Unfortunately, in today's world, young people do exactly that. If your friend is following Keto diet and getting his desired results, it does not necessarily mean that it would be beneficial for you as well. You need to set your goal and feed your body accordingly. Nutrition is not low-fat, low-calorie. It's not being hungry and feeling deprived. It's nourishing your body with real whole food so that you are consistently satisfied and feel energised. Adequate meals, on time, is the key to getting that body you ve always dreamed of.
