How to Eat Like a Body Builder


Excerpt:

Eating like a body builder will help you build muscle, lose excess weight, and maintain a healthy weight if you follow it strictly. The basic idea is to eat a diet high in protein and fiber, and low in carbohydrates and fat. To eat like a body-builder, read these pointers as well as the sample diet below.

1. Follow the meal plan detailed below. Spices can be used but not in extremes. Avoid thick or creamy salad dressings. Use salt sparingly; good alternatives are Mrs. Dash seasonings. Avoid sugar at all costs; if you like sugar and cream in your morning coffee, try using skim milk and stevia as healthier alternatives.

2. Eat a meal every 2 to 3 hours. Body-builders emphasize proteins matched with carbs; however, incorporating vegetables and fiber into your diet will also help sustain your health and keep you feeling full. If you miss a meal, you don't get to make up for it at the next meal.
