Bodybuilding Diet Plan - Meal Plans and Mistakes to Avoid

Bodybuilding Diet Plans
For effective bodybuilding, it is important to get the combination of body building diet plan and weight training work outs right. Also when it comes to body building meal plans, it is necessary to know what meals to have, when to have them and how to have them to build massive muscles and keep away the fat storage.
A common mistake that people make when formulating their meal plan for muscle gain is that they go over board with protein diets. It is true that protein is necessary for body building, but what is more important is taking this protein at the right time. If you just keep taking proteins and neglect the carbohydrates and fat, then you cannot build muscles.
For example, if you take a protein drink immediately after your morning intense workout, none of that will amount to anything if you do not take carbohydrates or sugar along with it. Immediately after the workout, the muscle glycogen in your body would have got depleted. Insulin is necessary to drive those calories from proteins into the muscles causing the proteins to be stored as muscle glycogen. Hence, if you do not take carbohydrate drink after workout, the protein that you consume will only get stored in fat cells.
Immediately after the workout, it is good to have carbohydrates and sugars in the form of fruit juices which have a high Glycemic Index (GI) and can cause a quick release of large quantities of insulin.
Another big mistake made by people who are conscious of putting on weight, do all it takes to avoid fats. This is plain wrong. Fats play an important role in repairing the muscles as well as causing the testosterone secretion which is necessary for muscle building. However, it is important to take the right fats. Fat from olive oil, fish oil, meat etc. should be a part of the daily diet. Avoid hydrogenated fats as this is useless for muscle building and only results in artery diseases.
The body building meal plan should consist of a good combination of fruits, vegetables, fiber like oats, etc. Increase your intake of water and have water at regular intervals. Fruits and vegetables, apart from supplying the much needed carbohydrates, also maintain the alkalinity of the blood. This is very important for muscle repair and re-growth during the recovery.
It would be a big mistake if you avoid sleeping well. It is during sleep that all maximum recovery of muscles happens.
