Building muscles or losing weight

I'm one of those who around 5 years ago, wanted to add some weight by building muscles. But I lost weight instead.

I know there are more people who experience the same. I think my experience was contributed by;

1. Not eating well.
2. Not having an instructor to guide me.
3. Not focusing on the types of exercises that were for my specific need.
4. Not knowing the best time to exercise.
5. Not knowing what nutrients my body needed or lacked.

So I will appreciate your input on why some people experience the opposite of what they expected during body building.

Not staying responsible during the weekend

As the weekend approaches, everyone gets into a celebration mood. Some athletes even indulge in drinking alcohol disregarding the fact that athletes shouldn't drink any alcohol. Compromise is unpreventable but at the end of the day you are an adult and you know what suits you best. Making your absolute best should be your priority.

As long as your healthy when I say this, it means your body organs are functioning properly, however giving nice shape to your body by doing exercise is all together different things having nice or well shaped body doesn't mean your healthy I've seen people dying in their young age even though they were looking healthy and were consuming healthy diet as well. I think we shouldn't focus on the look of our body only but how it works only than we can take care of ourselves, quitting sedentary lifestyle is the first step towards healthy life. breathing exercise avoiding chemical diet that's all we need to learn.

When I was a skinny teenager I was advised to lift small weights. I bought a dumbbell that was quite heavy for me because I felt that it would give me the muscles. I was doing good reps every day and sometimes not just in the morning but also in the afternoon. It was surprising that I was losing weight. Maybe what I needed was vitamins or appetizer to increase the volume of my food.
