If you don't build muscle you may add fat when gaining. ...Read more

It becomes harder to get back the muscle and keep of the fat. ...Read more

How does one muster up the discipline to follow a strict diet and exercise regiment?

Diet: In my experience people tend to be goal oriented. If you look for a goal that is barely achievable by you and create, or have someone create a plan for you(including diet and exercise), you are more likely to be successful. Don't fall into the "all or nothing" trap. Completely giving up if you have a misstep along the way. It is a lifestyle change that needs to take place. Not a temporary diet. ...Read more
