Looking great and feeling great requires a healthy diet and regular exercise. There’s no getting around it. If you workout to build muscle or lose weight you have to balance those workouts out with the proper foods to get the desired results.
Some people think that proper nutrition is all about eating endless amounts of vegetables. That’s not true. Good nutrition requires a balance between several food groups to ensure the body gets what it needs.
If you want to add muscle as you train, your body requires at least 40 additional calories per kg of your body weight per day. The extra calories are what give you the energy you need to withstand a monster workout.
Those extra calories shouldn’t be spent on junk food, however. Make the most of your workout and spend the extra calories on sensible, healthful food.
Maintaining the right nutrition doesn’t come by accident. It helps to use a chart and consult the food pyramid or recommended diet plan. Check with a nutritionist if you have questions. It’s important to remember that proteins are the building blocks of muscles. Your body needs to have slightly higher protein levels in order to repair and build new muscles.
If you want the necessary energy to be strong in your workout it’s important to include a limited amount of carbohydrates and fats. To build muscle you need at least 50% of your daily calories to come from carbohydrates to produce glycogen. Glycogen fuels the body for maximum energy expenditure. To repair tissue, build core strength and stamina, you need minerals and vitamins the come from fresh fruits and vegetables.
To strengthen bones and ensure healthy blood production you need calcium, zinc and iron. A solid nutrition plan must include the proper foods to build strong muscles.
For added benefits, try adding a protein supplement shake, drink or bar to add the nutrients essential for to keep you healthy and full of energy.
