Nutrition is the key to success when it comes to losing fat and gaining muscle. Or as we love to call it bodybuilders nutrition. The one thing you will have to remember is that you cannot become a bodybuilder with a bad diet. Your diet will allow you to either gain muscle or lose fat, or both at the same time, which is the best combination.
Even the 8 times Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman said "Without a good diet you are not going to achieve anything" he also said "In the beginning I used to eat burgers and fried foods and that was the reason why I was not gaining much muscle".
As you can see nutrition is the number one thing that you have to change in your life style if you want to become a bodybuilder.
In the world of bodybuilding where nutrition plays an important role in your life style, you must be sure that your diet is good so you can gain more muscle and lose more fat at the same time.
There are a couple of things that you will have to remember if you want to achieve something with your body.
Eat, eat some more, than come back and eat again. To gain a good amount of muscle you will have eat a lot of complex carbohydrates, lean protein, and good fats. Be sure that you are going to get those nutrients from good sources. You are not going to gain fat, because you are going to eat clean, you are even going to lose fat.
Complex carbohydrates are going to help you out a lot. They will give good quality energy, which will help you to get the best out of your workout. In return you are going to get serious muscle gains.
Lean protein are very important for a bodybuilder. Protein will rebuild your muscle tissue that you have ripped while working out.
Good fats are full with Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. As funny as it may sound, while eating good fats you are going to lose more fat. Don't over do it. Taking up to 10-15g per meal as a bodybuilder is good.
No I am just kidding, it's supplements, not suppliments. Supplements are going to help you gain more muscle. I only use protein powder, in other words clean protein. I want my muscles to be real.
To be a bodybuilder you must understand that nutrition comes first. But never forget about the workout, it's as important as the nutrition. Supplements like protein powder will help you get a meal on the go. And other will help you gain muscle, it depends if you want real muscles or fake ones.
