Bodybuilding Myths



What diet plan should you have when you are just starting your bodybuilding routine? Most people think that you should take in as much protein as you can for every meal. This may work for professional bodybuilders who still want to grow in mass but when you are a beginner then itís a different matter.

The recommended number of meals you should take is four meals in one day. One full meal means eating until you are satisfied and comfortable. Do not eat until you are so full that you have to unbutton your jeans, that is not recommendable.

If possible, do not eat processed foods. Try your hardest to change your diet no matter how tempting the food is. Buy lots of fruits and vegetables on your next grocery shopping. Fruit juices with a lot of sugar is not good for you, stay away from them. You can drink shakes made from fresh fruits and vegetables.

Your diet should consist of a good amount of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Carbohydrates are naturally found in all vegetables, fruits, pasta, non-white bread, rice, oatmeal, grits and tortillas.

For proteins, you should eat lean meat, skim milk, baked chicken, baked fish, eggs, lean steak and turkey.

For fats, you should know what food and ingredients are a good source of healthy fats. Olive oil and peanut oil is okay. You should also eat avocados, cottage cheese and salad dressings.

Drink six to eight full glasses of water per day. Try to refrain from eating too much fried foods and foods which has high content of saturated fat. Food and drinks with high refined sugar should also be avoided.

This is basically what your diet should be like if you are just starting out on bodybuilding. You do not have to eat clean food forever, you can have two to three days of eating anything you want just as long as you do not overdo it.
