Muscle Building Mania

YOUR DIET AND BODY BUILDING
Everything you have learned thus far will not provide desired results without the
proper nutrition. Many novice body builders are under the false impression that
the more you eat the better.
This is totally false. Your body building regimen needs to include the proper
balance of calories, protein, carbohydrates and fat. Extra protein along with other
essentials are important to compensate for the calories you burn during your
workout. Other necessities for good nutrition for the bodybuilder are Calcium,
Iron, Magnesium and Sodium to name a few.
It is believed that protein works well for a bodybuilder if it is combined with
carbohydrates when taken. While at least 200 grams of carbohydrates taken
daily are required to adequately accommodate the protein intake, a 200 pound
bodybuilder should take in 300 grams. More carbohydrates than protein for each
meal facilitates the absorption of the protein.
We all know that milk, egg, meat, soy, casein and whey are good sources of
protein. A bodybuilder need not sacrifice quality in his daily meal planning. Just to
prove it, here are several recipes that meet all the requirements of nutrition for an
active bodybuilder without sacrificing taste.
