Are you dieting right?
If you’re looking to get the most out of your hard training in the gym then that means making sure that you fuel your body the right way. Diet is the key to unlocking your muscle building potential. If you think you can just lift heavy and watch your muscles grow for eternity then you’re going to have a rude awakening. A lot of individuals rely too much on consuming protein and avoiding bad carbs. But believe it or not there’s more to a bodybuilding diet than just focusing on macros. Focus in a bit and take a couple things under consideration.
No Added Sugars
Any good bodybuilding diet will entail avoiding unnecessary and unhealthy sugar intake. That means putting down the soft drinks, the energy drinks, and anything else that has added sugars that will expand your waistline and mess with insulin sensitivity. There’s nothing worse than training your ass off then consuming the kind of foods that will inhibit your body from building more muscle. That means the added sugars have to go.
That’s right. It may seem like some pretty basic knowledge, but the devil’s in the details and if you’re looking to keep a shredded physique and maintain impressive muscle then you’re going to want to monitor what kind of vegetables you pump into your body. Cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower and broccoli have muscle building properties. These vegetables contain sulforaphane which works as a natural anti-catabolic agent. That means maintaining greater muscle mass in the long run.
Do You Feel Full?
If you don’t then there’s probably something you’re doing wrong. Besides the obvious nutrients you’ll receive from vegetables, they should also offer a satiating factor. Couple that with an adequate amount of protein and that means you should be feeling fuller longer with each meal. If you feel like you’re starving after your meals then that means you should take a step back and analyze exactly what you’re putting on your plate and why it’s not making you feel filled.
