Yes: Sounds like you're pretty active into fitness and protein should be a big part of your diet. The amount of protein you take daily depends on your goals, muscle building vs. Cutting down vs. Fat loss. I recommend 1.2 to 1.5 mg/kg of protein a day in order to maintain positive Nitrogen (anabolic) balance. Go to www. Bodybuilding. Com as they have good instructions on Nutrition based on goals. ...Read more

Is there any easy weight loss that does not involve work out?

Not really: Weight loss requires reducing calories consumed below calories burned. Without exercise this is difficult to maintain, thus the weight tends to return. Start with a short daily walk and progress until you reach 30 minutes of exercise daily. Combined with a low-glycemic index diet this will allow you to steadily lose weight and then maintain it. ...Read more

I really don't like upper body workouts! How can I make them more fun?

Find partner: Workouts, whether upper body (in your case), lower body or cardio can be a 'drag' after a while. My best advice as a sports medicine physician and endurance 'athlete' is to find a work- out partner w/ similar work- out goals as you and train together... If unable to do so then work w/ a certified personal trainer who can keep your work- outs more fun and goal/ oriented. Best of Luck! ...Read more

Prob not: As long as you eat a little less during your 3 day holiday, you shouldn't gain any weight, especially as a one off. A little extra muscle recovery time now and then is good for you.
