Muscle Building Nutrition

The biggest mistake of a great majority of muscle building newbies is neglecting a good healthy diet. Muscle building is a combination of 3 factors: genetics, strength training and nutrition.

According to the law of conservation of mass, the mass of an isolated system cannot be changed as a result of processes acting inside the system. Hence it follows that the only way to gain the muscle mass is getting the proper nutrients needed for muscle growth to occur.

Muscle is unique in a number of ways. The fibers of muscle are made up of a number of different proteins arranged in a very specific manner. It should be remembered that the proteins are essential parts of organisms and participate in virtually every process within cells. That’s why it is important to ensure a sufficient intake of protein.

After exercising, the body continuously burns up energy. This is where carbohydrates are needed. They save the energy stored in the muscles. Avoid simple carbohydrates! Unlike complex carbohydrates, simple carbohydrates play havoc with our insulin metabolism and lead to fatigue and fat storage.

Minerals and vitamins accelerate muscle build process. Vitamins and minerals make people's bodies work properly. The most important nutrient in the body is water. Water is also an essential source of minerals such as magnesium and calcium that prevent our muscles from cramping up. Thus the water helps to build the muscles.

Use the supplements. They help to fill the body up with the nutrients that are missed in the food.

Here is an optimal eating scheme for the bodybuilding:

  • 1st breakfast: eggs, curd cheese, oatmeal
