Alan’s FAQ’s

By: Alan Ataman

Over the last few months, I’ve received quite a few questions on Facebook and Instagram, asking for answers and my opinion and thoughts on some different topics in regards to fitness and the body.

So I thought since I’m getting asked these questions, maybe these are questions that some others may be interested in getting answers to. So I’d like to do a Question and Answer article this week.

I’m a big believer in there being no such thing as stupid questions. If you really want to know and have a genuine interest, and don’t know, then the question is legit and deserves an answer for.

So with that being said, I took the question and answers from previous conversations to share with you here. Hopefully, they will see you well and you pick up a thing or two from them.

Question 1: Can you tell me why when girls lose weight, the first thing that seems to go is our breasts? I’ve seen a lot of girls lose their chest as they lose weight and the same is currently happening with me?

Answer: Great question. Fat Tissue makes up the majority of tissue in the breasts and when you gain weight, the fat cells get bigger and then so do your breasts. When you lose weight, your fat cells and tissues in the breasts get smaller which then lead to breasts getting smaller.

All woman’s breasts density is going to vary, and if yours are more dense with less fat tissue in them, then chances are you will see less of a drop in size compared to those with less dense and more fat tissue in them.

Your breasts density as you go through a weight loss transformation is in the hands of your genes. If you’re interested in knowing the density of our breasts before deciding if you want to provide with losing weight, a mammogram will help provide you with that answer.

Question 2: I’ve heard that if women train like men then we will get bulky like men. I see some women online and in person that are either really big or muscular and some who are toned while staying slim. If I train like men, will I get big and bulky?

Answer: There is a 99 percent chance that you WILL NOT get bulky unless you train for that mass you see on the women. Even still, it’s not a guarantee you’ll be able to get to the size you speak of. Our body type and testosterone levels determine how our bodies respond to using training.

So chances are you will develop strength, gain definition and tone your body, but not become the size that so many women are afraid of achieving. There are specific training techniques people use to get to that size. So don’t fret, hit the gym, you’re going be just fine.

Question 3: I have been working out and dieting lately and have been doing pretty well and have been losing weight, but haven’t lost any weight over the past few days. Is this normal? What should I do?

Answer: Sounds like you may have hit a Plateau. Your body is on to you. Might be time to switch it up.

Have you switched up your workout routine lately? Changed your meals around or tried new foods? How’s the intensity levels you’ve been applying at the gym? Did you get a good amount of sleep last night?

Just like in real life, if you do the same thing every day, you and your body get bored and used to what you give and do to it. It becomes accustomed.

If you were to wake up every day, go to the bathroom, brush your teeth, shower eat, work, gym, and then sleep. You’d get bored. There’s no spice or excitement in your life and therefore nothing would change, and the same thing goes for your body.
It needs excitement and a new plan of attack to get those results being seen once again.

Question 4: What are the best exercises for a flat stomach. I want a flat stomach with abs. How can I lose my belly fat and get that flat stomach?

Answer: Well you’re going have to make your abs in the kitchen. Healthy, clean, and lesser/more eating is what it’s going take to get that flatter stomach.

It’s going take discipline and time. No matter how much you run, train, or exercise, you cannot out due unhealthy eating. But why? Because Abs Are Made in the Kitchen.

You can crunch, and you can sit, plank, twist, flutter or whatever other abdominal exercises you may do in the gym but if there is still fat covering our abs, like 99% of the world has, then we won’t be able to see our abs, which everyone has. Same thing with every other body part. Less body fat covering these parts, the more our gains and definition show. And that’s our ultimate goal, right?

So what is the best way for fat reduction? Healthy eating.

Now if after reading some of these Q and A’s and you have any questions in regards to them or maybe have other questions you would like some help with, send me a message.
