I f your goal is to build muscle, you know you need to eat. Eat often. And eat a lot! And it goes without saying that good food should always make up the majority of your eating plan!
The body can become a ripped, muscular machine if we give it exactly what it needs to fuel the biochemical and metabolic pathways that stimulate the fat burning furnace, turn on protein synthesis or muscle building, tighten and tone us!
More and more bodybuilders and physique competitors these days have discovered that eating to just gain weight is not the most effective or healthy way to pack on muscle. Actually, the real secret is to start living a fit and healthy life everyday – eat the right foods for building muscle and keeping lean all the time.
Whether you are new to dieting, or have been following a healthy, fit lifestyle for a long time, one of the most challenging tasks you may have is going grocery shopping.
You are probably already aware that the majority of food you need, when following any healthy, muscle building diet plan can be found around the perimeter of the store. But did you know that there are still a few healthy choices that can be found in the inside aisles too?
Part of the reason you will be successful on any diet plan is about the choices you make. It is easy to say you’re going to follow a diet when you’re reading it sitting at home. But in the real world, following that diet you so carefully thought out is where things start to rapidly fall apart.
When it comes to getting a lean and hard body fast, you need to put the effort in the gym – lifting the iron and sweating it out on the cardio machine, but you also have to re-think what you are eating.
Most of you have probably heard the old saying ‘abs are made in the kitchen’. That statement has a lot of truth to it! You can do all the hard work in the gym but if you are not feeding your body what it needs you can forget about ever getting any real results.
