Are Your Nutrition Habits Robbing You from the Body You Desire?
What if by making a few small changes in your nutrition and eating habits you could add up to a 50% gain in muscle mass and loose up to 18% extra fat.
Well you could be robbing yourself of these gains just by not eating correctly and at the right times. You see by eating at the right time you can catapult your body into a fat burning anabolic state which will not only help you gain more muscle but also loose more fat at the same time.
You will be surprised at how easy it is to make a few simple changes in your eating habits and times and the gains that you will get from these very small changes.
In a recent study in the U.K it has been shown that eating irregular meals promotes fat gain. It all comes back to our body's "will to survive" mechanism. When you skip or prolong a meal your body will automatically go into saviour mode and start storing extra fat to be used at a later date. Consequently your next meal also stores a lot of extra fat.
By eating smaller meals more frequently you can not only counter this effect but also put your body into an anabolic state, which will also increase your base metabolic rate. In plain English this leads to higher fat loss and more muscle gain.
A haphazard supplement program coupled with a haphazard diet will make building muscle and loosing fat a next to impossible task no matter how you train
Why would anyone put in all that effort in their training and not back it up by proper nutrition and eating habits? Lack of knowledge would be the most likely answer.
Ideally you should be eating 5 or 6 smaller meals a day that are low in fat, with high protein and medium carbohydrate.
Here is an example of my Meal plan each day
Meal 1: 6AM
Meal 2: 9AM
Meal 3: 12PM
Meal 4: 3PM
Meal 5: 6PM (Post-workout)
Meal 6: 7PM
Meal 7: 10PM
I take my meal plans from the Max OT training program, which can be found at http://www.ast-ss.com/max-ot/max-ot_intro.asp
You do not need to supplement the way I do and by just eating 5-7 smaller meals per day you will already be on your way to a healthier life with better gains from your gym workouts.
