Can Primal eating grow muscle without exercise?
I am severely overweight and too broken to do anything more than walk and basic strength exercises at the moment. I am curious if eating a primal diet could grow my muscles so that I can tell a difference in my body makeup. Or is doing an exercise that targets muscle growth required?
This question is motivated by a sense that my muscles are feeling firmer in my arms and legs, similar to how I felt back in the day when I lifted weights. I have started exercising yet, and I have in fact avoided any unnecessary exertion due to a strained knee tendon. Since I started eating primal almost a month ago, I have definitely increased my consumption of protein.
Thanks for the response!
