OverviewYour diet and training work hand in hand! You can’t have one without the other. I’m sure you have heard it before, you are what you eat, and well it is true and probably more true than you think. As much as 80 percent true. You can’t drive the lambo without the high performance gasoline! And you sure can't look like a Greek god or goddess without proper nutrition. You must consume the right amount of calories and macronutrients to achieve the gains you want in the gym. If you are looking to gain lean muscle and strength you must intake calories that will help your body grow and repair the muscle breakdown following a intense workout.
A general outline of macronutrients for achieving these goals can be 40 percent proteins, 40 percent carbohydrates, and 20 percent fats. So if your calorie goal is 2500 your intake of protein would be 250 grams, 250 grams of carbs and 56 grams of fat. The majority of calories from carbohydrates should be focused around workouts and in the morning.
This diet is higher in protein because protein is the building block for muscle. With the right training and combined protein intake your body will be sure to respond! Achieving the body you have always desired! But don’t forget the hard work. Rome wasn’t built over night and either is a strong, sexy physique.
As for carbhydates focus them around exercise. Carbs are your primary source of energy. And if you plan on having a butt kicking work out you need energy! If your carbohydrates are too low so will be your capacity to do work. So fuel up on some quality carbos or kiss that beach body good bye.
Any fit person will tell you don’t be afraid of fats! But learn to like the healthy ones. Fats are essential for proper hormone production and they also help with recovery not to mention help the brain to function. So make sure to get those omega fatty acids in. You will need them!
