So ya wanna be a freak - or even just have a nice degree of muscle and a dialed in six-pack. Well your body and tens of thousands of years of evolution have second thoughts in regard to this pursuit. See the body prefers to stay in its comfort zone and that means it is constantly trying to maintain homeostasis-a set-point that is the area where it is at its most natural balance.
For most of us that is not 240 shredded unfortunately as evolutionary food was not always prevalent but rather scarce and excess LBM was a waste of energy. Moreover, to have too little body-fat would mean certain disaster in times of famine.
Now some may be fortunate enough to have a homeostatic set-point of a more favorable nature but most will curse their ancestors (albeit not having a 7-11 on every corner was not their fault) and even for the 'gifted' huge, rippling muscles will still require a particularly rough battle with our homeostatic mechanisms.
"What To Do, What To Do?" You Say...
| Well luckily although it will not be an easy war to wage we are privy to many weapons and strategies in our quest to defeat the mighty monsters of homeostasis and the mechanism that are in place to thwart our efforts to our goals.
Of course though this war is unending and a constant battle as the body will never stop its minions bent on homeostatic onslaught and we must be disciplined and merciless in our attempts to fight them off.
