Too Much Protein
This one might be a little controversial, but hear us out. We aren’t talking about those good proteins like nuts, chicken, rice, and fish. We’re talking about slamming down three protein shakes in a row and then chasing it with a protein bar. Not only are you adding a lot of extra sugar when consuming these fabricated proteins, but you are also flooding your bloodstream with too much protein. Guess what happens when your body gets too much protein? It will convert it into fat instead of muscle.
Incorporate more of these good foods and less of the bad into your diet while you are trying to build lean muscle and you will be stirring up a batch of biceps in no time!
