Myths about counting calories

This is a quick post about the myths on the importance of counting calories. One of the things people always ask me is how many calories I take in. What I try to emphasize is that, before you begin worrying about calories, think about WHAT your taking in. How many carbs? What kinds of carbs? How much protein per day are you taking in? How much water are you drinking? These basic things, tracking them, and knowing what percentage of them you take in on a daily basis is more important than how many calories you take in, when you first start out.

I emphasize the ,”when you first start out” part because , you DO have to worry about how many calories you’re taking in, but if you’re just starting to think about your nutrition, I would start with the basic three, Proteins, Carbs, and Fats. I use MyFitnesspal, to help keep track of my diet. It is available on Android, IPhone, and web based client. It breaks everything you’re eating down to it’s basic Macronutrients.

So to sum it up, when starting to think about your diet, don’t focus so much on calories, as you should focus on how much protein, carbs and fats you’re taking in, and what kind of fats and carbs you’re taking in.

Musclemania coming up in Charlotte

August 4th, 2012 is the next Natural show in Charlotte coming up. I did this show in 2010 and was my first Bodybuilding show. Can’t say it was my best first experience since I am more familiar with INBF. Musclemainia, as it was explained to me by the promoter, is sponsored by ESPN. They wanted to continue the sport, but get away from non-tested shows, so they created their own organization. He organization has taken off quite a bit and is known worldwide. There is no polygraph, but there is a urinalysis if you win. When I did the show in 2010, it was not disclosed to us that it was a “feeder” show to see what kind of interest there was in Charlotte. The classes were small, and the scoring is different than INBF. The routine counts as part of your overall score in the show. If you decide to do this show, make sure you have fun and develop your routine. This year marks the 2nd year it’s been in Charlotte, so hopefully, there is a larger turn out of competitors, and it is taken a bit more seriously. I would recommend this show for beginners and people who want to get in a practice show before their big one. Just my opinion based off my own experience, if someone else has had a better time at this show, please let me know.
