  2. i startes going to gym form january 2016,i got better results in losing my weight.But all are saying that we will put on weight more and more if we leave going gym.

    • It is not right to say that leaving gym will increase the weight. You just have to reduce your diet. If you will keep eating the same diet when you were going to the gym then surely it will increase the weight. So monitor your diet and build a healthy body. Keep Visiting ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. is this rit?
    what are all the precautions we need to take when we leave gym

  4. Im fat and im planning to go for gym but people say that while working out wwe put off weight as soon as we stop gym we put on double weight how to maintain the same weight even after stopping gym??

    • Hi Sonu,

      Don’t worry, go to the gym and start building muscles. When you have to quit the gym, just maintain your diet. Reduce your calorie intake and keep taking enough protein. You won’t gain weight and also you will maintain your muscles.

  5. Hi my name is nobojyoti..M going to gym for more then 4 years….n my muscles are like The rock…N m happy….. but now i dnt wanna go to gym anymore… so if i stop going…will it effect my muscles n biceps..

    • Hi Nobojyoti,

      if you stop going gym it will affect a little on the hardness of your muscles. Still, if you want to maintain the muscles after quitting the gym. Then you should maintain a diet with enough protein. I would recommend you to not completely stop going the gym. You can do this 2 times over the weekend. It will maintain the hardness of your muscles. Thanks for dropping your comment. I would like to hear your further query.

  6. I am underweight and skinny girl. my age is 20.. I have joined gym since one week to gain weight. if I leave gym after one month will I become fat and gain weight??

    • Hi Mahima,

      This is not how it works. Quitting gym won’t increase the fat, it’s the diet. If you maintain your diet then you won’t gain any fat and stay skinny. Also, one month in the gym doesn’t affect you much. You should keep going to see the results. Thanks for dropping your comment. I would like to hear more from you.

      • Thanks for ur reply. I want to gain weight and fats I don’t like being skinny. Please guide me what diet and workouts should I focus on?

    • Hi Pramod,

      Burning fat depends on your diet and exercise. Keep doing exercise and regulate your diet. Reduce taking high-calorie food and you will see results soon. As I wrote in this article, leaving gym doesn’t increase the weight if you regulate your diet. When you plan to leave the gym, concentrate on diet and keep doing small exercises like walking, jogging, jumping etc. You will keep your body fit.
