Natural Foods For The Bodybuilder

By Jenni Snook

The raw food diet is basically exactly as it states. It is a diet that consists of plant foods that are uncooked and unprocessed. What are these foods? Think fruits and vegetables, beans, grains, nuts, seeds, sprouts, seafood and a variety of dried fruit.

It may not sound appetizing but you can easily come to enjoy raw foods if you gradually work them into your diet. As a bodybuilder you will be glad that you did.Raw foods help you to discover inner strength in your body that you never knew you had! It is not uncommon for your body to go through a detoxification when you first switch to raw foods. Rest assured that this is perfectly normal!

You may well find that you will shed pounds, but these are unhealthy pounds. Therefore, as a bodybuilder, you have nothing to worry about. In time as you eat more and more raw foods, you will gain back some of the pounds you lost. The good news is that these pounds will be thanks to healthy food sources. You will develop strong, solid muscles.

The muscles of bodybuilders atrophy and deflate as they grow older. A bodybuilder grows to the peak of his career in his late twenties to early thirties. After that muscles set out to shrink a little over time like a balloon.This is easy to understand when you compare the muscles of a 30 year old to a 40 or 50 year old! They are different.

Muscles that have created due to cooked food and various unnatural ingredients will flatten quicker. If you eat raw foods you will create stronger muscles that will stay longer.

Muscles that have developed due to cooked food and a variety of unnatural substances will deflate at a faster rate. If you eat raw foods you will develop stronger muscles that will last longer. The reason for this is because they will develop from natural sources.

Consume fruit and veggies that are “botanical” in nature. Put simply, the seeds are left in them. For example tomatoes, cucumbers, avocados, peppers and squash.For a high energy natural food drink, think smoothies!

Pear Delight Smoothie Ingredients: 1 mango (peeled with seeds taken out and then diced) 1 pear 1/2 cup of cut fresh pineapple 1 celery rib Juice from 1/2 lime Seeds from 1 vanilla bean 1 teaspoon natural honey Water to slim Put all elements in a blender and blend well.
