Insulin resistance can kill your gains.
When it comes to building a tremendous physique there are some fundamental ingredients that must be infused into your lifestyle. Training is of course of paramount importance. You can’t simply get big if you’re not stimulating your muscle. But nutrition may be even more important than how much weight is on the bar. Nutrition itself can be broken down into a science. You could know what to eat for a bodybuilding diet, but that’s not the whole story.
If you want to get the most out of your bodybuilding diet then you’ll have to ensure that your insulin sensitivity is being boosted. When insulin sensitivity is low it means less nutrients are are being pushed to the muscles. When insulin sensitivity levels are boosted it means greater muscle growth as well as burning more body fat. In order to do that you’re going to want to have the right ingredients as well as understand when and how to eat your meals.
