Why Glycemic Index Diets Probably Won’t Help With Fat Loss

Have you ever been told that to lose weight, you should eat low glycemic index (GI) or (supposedly better) low glycemic load (GL) foods?

And that’s the kind of nonsense about the so called dangers of machine training that’s been circulated in the fitness world ever since.

The World’s Most Efficient Muscle-Building Workouts For Busy People

How long you workout is not always the most important factor. How intensely you work out, how efficiently you use your gym time, and how you progress from one workout to the next is more important.
