You're off to a good start and you've got a goal - to build more muscle.
Firstly, let's cover off the hard and fast rules of muscle building to get rid of common misconceptions and set expectations early;
Now that we're on the same page, here are our four simple steps to building muscle.
Your diet is the single most important factor when it comes to your health and body composition. There are two main diet goals for building muscle;
A good place for beginners to start is to track your current diet with a food journal to help you understand and control your food intake.
Now that your diet is in check, exercise is your tool to prompt the body to build more muscle. The most effective way to build muscle is with weight training and we recommend starting out with a reputable program designed for beginners. Most beginner routines propose training 2-3 times per week, with low repetition sets of compound exercises and adding weight each week as you get stronger.
You’re eating right and training like a beast, now it’s time for the third part of the equation - rest and recovery. If you neglect this component you won’t make the gains you could have and you put yourself at risk of burning out.
Change happens slowly and incrementally and it can be difficult to miss. Capture your progress using the Fitstream health and fitness journal to stay motivated and see just how far you’ve come.
We believe in tracking metrics that really matter and reflect how your body is actually changing. With Fitstream you can record body measurements, take before and after photos, and write journal entries to document those personal experiments and discover just what works for you.

👏 Great to see Will Smith leading the way in an industry which doesn’t usually share body photos without feeding them through the Filter Machine.

So this is my first blog and it's taken me a while to get to this step....
As you can see from my user name I am very fat. When you look at me from the side all you can see is so much blubber that it detracts from anything else. Same goes from the front.
My stomach looks marginally slimmer than...
This is actually my stomach as can't find an entry for that. It's absolutely hideous. All I see when I look down is that it looks like I've swallowed a beach ball. Got asked today how many months pregnant I am...that's how humongous my stomach is.
How did I put on so many inches. Was 30 inches this time last year. Feel disgusting and like a whale. Can't bear to look at my stomach in the mirror
