Bodybuilding diet to build muscles

Do you know what builds muscle and cuts fat? The primary goal of bodybuilding is to tone your body’s muscles through weightlifting and dieting. For fitness enthusiasts, bodybuilding is a lifestyle because it involves both the time spent in the gym and outside the gym. To be a bodybuilder like Jay Cutler, it is important to learn about bodybuilding, diet, nutrition, and supplements. Therefore in this article, we will focus on a bodybuilding diet.

Bodybuilding Diet to Tone Muscle

protein diet

Certain foods and supplements can help you to tone muscles; therefore; the following foods must be a part of a bodybuilding diet:

●     Chicken/Turkey:

Meat is the best source of protein. Therefore, for bodybuilders to pack on pounds of serious muscle and burn body fat, they eat lean meat like chicken or turkey breast. Chicken breast contains 172 calories, with 48% protein, while turkey contains 19 calories and has 73% protein.

●     Fish:

Fish is another excellent source of protein and is also low in fat. Besides, they are also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids that can aid in the muscle-building and burning stomach fat process. Add cold water fishes like salmon, tuna, and sardines to your diet to build muscles or lose fat. Salmon and tuna contain 116 calories, while sardine has 208.

●     Beans/Legumes:

Any serious bodybuilder will never ignore the power of beans and legumes. Beans contain more protein and fiber than most foods. Therefore, they are critical for building muscles and cutting fat.  The protein builds muscle while the fiber burns fat. There is almost 14g of both protein and fiber in a cup of a bean.

●     Lean Red Meat:

Nothing can compare to the power of lean red meats for building muscles. It is rich in protein, iron, zinc, and vitamin B. Protein uses more calories to digest than any other food and it builds muscle which helps with the burning of body fat.  Apart from chicken and fish, also add lean red meat to your diet.

Meal Schedule

Timing Meal Released

Apart from what you are eating, when you are eating is also very important to build muscles or burn stomach fat. Divide your meal as a pre-exercise meal, during exercise, and post-exercise meal. Eat your main meal 3-4 hours before exercise that is low in fat and fiber. Your post-meal is very important as it can help you recover and build muscles; for post-exercise meals, consume 20 times more protein.

Final Words

Diet is an important part of bodybuilding.  It is the major factor in burning stomach fat and building muscle. Therefore, always add food that can help you to build muscles and burn stomach fat. Moreover, also plan the time of each meal. A great body is built in the kitchen, not the gym.
