Bodybuilding Meal Plan

Bodybuilding Meal Plan
Bodybuilding is a very demanding sport. Your goal to build pure muscle is a strict combination of training, resting and above all proper nutrition. That's the reason why you need a bodybuilding meal plan.
Many experts say that proper nutrition gives us 70 and training only 30 percent of what we need to develop muscles. Others claim that it is better to lose a workout than one single meal. Well, they can't be wrong. You can train as much and as hard you want, but if you don't supply your body with the nutrition elements that are necessary your muscle growth will stay limited up to a certain point. There is an even worse scenario where your body starts to metabolize muscle tissue. That is what happens if you don't follow a bodybuilding meal plan. Here is an example of a bodybuilding meal plan for a person of 160 pounds of bodyweight:
• 8: am: • 1 Cup Oat flakes with skimmed milk • 1/2 o.z. Honey • 5 egg whites hardboiled or raw • 1 Banana
• 11:am: • 1 Cup Plain Yogurt • 1 Scoop Protein Shake • 1 Slice whole meal bread with 2 slices of turkey meat
• 2:00pm: • 1 Fillet of white fish or beef or with rice • 1 Salad with 1 Tablespoon olive oil • 2 Tablespoon Tomato Sauce • 1 Slice cottage cheese • 1 Fruit
• 17:30pm: • 1 chicken breast sandwich • 1-2 boiled potatoes
• 8:00pm: Same as 2 pm
• 22:00pm: 1 scoop Protein shake
This bodybuilding meal plan is just an example of the time gaps between the meals and how you should divide your meals daily in order to intake the protein and the carbohydrates you need. You can alter it if you have certain preferences to some foods, but you have to keep in mind that you should intake 1 gram of protein for each pound of bodyweight and 50 percent of your daily calorie intake should come from carbohydrates. You must also try to keep your fat consume limited. You can always add olive oil. Furthermore, remember never to consume carbohydrates (bread, pasta, potatoes, etc.) after 18.00 or the most 19.00 because it will probably get stored in your body as fat.
In addition to this bodybuilding meal plan, you must stay focused to your supplementation. No matter how discipline you are with your daily nutrition plan, supplementation is obligatory if you wish to build muscle fast and permanent. Take your protein shake, one dosage directly after workout and one or two more during the day, amino acids, also directly after training and throughout the day. If you can afford it, you can take multivitamins, creatine, glutamine and nitric oxide.
However, all these products are just supplements, which mean that you mainly have to focus on your bodybuilding meal plan in order to supply your muscles with all the essential nutrition elements.
Keep those muscles pumping!
