Get A Handle On Cortisol, or It Will Put Love Handles On You

Most people in the fitness and bodybuilding industry know that hormones are important to build muscle and reduce body fat.  Of these hormones, testosterone and growth hormone are kings.  However there is another hormone that is important to know about.

The truth is, if you want to get leaner, larger muscles and get healthier, you need focus on both – calorie quantity and calorie quality, not just one or the other.

Believe it or not, this is the most important factor for muscle growth to occur and we will show you why this statement really isn’t even controversial when you objectively look at the research. Without proper nutrition, supplementation, rest and hydration you will make little or no gains and find yourself very frustrated and most likely quit because you won't be seeing any gains. The importance of raw materials (Macro and Micronutrients) cannot be understated as this article will show...
