Bodybuilding: Best Tips For Your Nutritional Needs


A good diet is essential to an effective body building program.  You can workout with the intensity of a professional, but if your diet stinks, you won’t be doing yourself any good.  Consider the following general tips for your nutritional needs.

  • Drink skim milk or soy milk

  • Cut sugar from your diet.  Use artificial sweeteners instead.

  • No regular soda!  Diet is better for you anyway and doesn’t contain sugar

  • Pizza and hamburgers are a big no-no.  Not only are they high in bad fat content, they are highly caloric and can cause you to overeat

  • Eat lots of fish to increase your levels of Omega 3 fatty acids

  • Chicken breasts are good for you as well

  • Allow yourself one cheat day a week where you can indulge in something you’ve been craving.  Just don’t overdo it on your cheat days or you can undo all you’ve accomplished.

  • Limit the amount of fruit you eat.  While fruit is healthy, it can have a detrimental effect on your workout.

  • Protein and complex carbohydrates are very important

  • Instead of eating three large meals a day, eat six smaller ones

  • Don’t skip meals

  • Vegetables are always a good choice at mealtime

  • When eating out, choose foods wisely.

  • Avoid most fast food restaurants or opt for healthy choices – remember no burgers!

The body is very adaptable to change.  At first, you may have problems getting used to your new diet.  But once you get used to eating right, you’ll find yourself not even craving the foods you used to eat.

  1. Bodybuilding supplements are the products that include an unadulterated form of creatine and are generally taken either on the pre or post workout and/or including other supplements like the whey protein.
