There are so many rules to follow when you are trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle and help build muscle.
Here are some simple nutrition rules to help build muscle:
Eat Breakfast You get energy from eating a healthy breakfast and youll tend to eat healthier throughout your day.
Eat Every 3 Hours Try to eat at fixed times every day and your body will get hungry at those same times which will help you eat smaller meals and you will have less cravings.
Eat Protein with Each Meal You need protein to build and maintain muscle. Protein also helps fat loss and make you full longer than carbs.
Eat Fruits and Veggies with Each Meal Most fruits and veggies are low calorie, full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber which helps digestion.
Eat Carbs Post Workout Only While you need carbs for energy, most people eat more than they need. Limit your carb intake to post workout only.
Eat Healthy Fats Healthy fats improve fat loss and health. Fats also digest slowly. Avoid artificial trans fats and margarine.
Drink Water Drinking water prevents dehydration but also hunger since an empty stomach can make you think youre hungry.
Eat Whole Foods 90% of the Time 90% of your food intake should consist of whole foods to help build muscle and lose fat.
Remember, how you look is based on what you eat. Lack of muscle mass, high body fat, lack of energy at work or at the gym, bad skin, digestive problems are usually caused by unhealthy nutrition so choose your food wisely.
