Bodybuilding Nutrition Meal Plans
Here is a good article for what to eat when you want to gain muscle:
When it comes to body building, hitting the weights is only one aspect
of putting on muscle. The other, more difficult dimension is your diet and
nutrition regime. To see the best results from the strain your weight lifting
inflicts on your muscles, you have to have the right nutritional mix to maximize
your muscle growth.
When you eat your first meal of the day, your body has been effectively fasting for the past several hours. It''s important to get something in your stomach after you wake up so your body won''t continue to consume itself for energy. Fiber and carbohydrates are good to put in your body first thing. Examples of these include oatmeal, porridge, yogurt, or whole wheat toast.
After breakfast, eating about two and a half to three hours apart will help your body make the most of what you''re putting into it. In planning these meals remember that while protein is important, you can''t neglect the rest of your nutritional needs. You will need carbohydrates to keep you going through those workouts, along with the vitamins, minerals, and folic acid you get from fruits and vegetables. Malnourishment will do your workout schedule no favors.
