So many were disappointed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. but I was personally impressed with one thing. Gail Gadot’s transformation for the role of Wonder Woman. Not only did she look better with the extra weight that she put on, but it came with a lot of benefits as well. Take a look for yourself in the before and after photo below.
Putting on muscle will inevitably come with some body fat, but with the proper diet, it will barely alter physical appearance and have no negative impact on your health. The benefits of putting on weight stems from a stronger immune system, more resistance to damage and of course increased strength. Bone density increases and so do our sex hormones. Hormones actually are regulated and maintained better in an energy dense environment.
The most healthy way to put on weight is by following a protein dense paleo diet combined with high intensity resistance training. Lifting weights until muscular fatigue and stuffing yourself with enough healthy food to fuel the muscles will get you one step closer to looking like Gail (for women) and the guys from 300 (for men).
