Is it just in my head or is it for real .!fitness Q watch

    • Thread Starter

    I feel like whenever I stop working out (weight lifting) for a "short" period of time I feel like my body deflates and my tone goes away- my body feels like overall **** and I feel like my body looks like ****. Is it real or in my head?

    I know it happen if you go on a long period without working but can a short period really mess you up? Should I take in more protein to save my muscles? Could it be because of my diet? It's mostly veggies, fruits and breads I don't eat meat. I stopped drinking protein shakes- does it matter that much or do I need it to persevere my muscles?

    How do people do this without going insane yes they body is worth it but idk if it's worth your sanity.

    I always maintain a high protein diet when I'm inactive. I hardly trained between xmas and May, only lost a bit of muscle. Been back in the gym for 2-3 weeks now and I'm almost back to my biggest already.
