It’s simple. Don’t make it complicated. A few minor tweaks to your eating habits, will guarantee success. Don’t count calories or diet. Stop obsessing about everything you eat.
Your body needs fuel. The food you eat is the fuel that powers your muscles and is crucial to your goal – peak performance, getting stronger, or losing weight.
Your diet should be a balance between 3 macro-nutrients: Protein, for muscle building; Carbohydrates, for energy; Fats, which aid in the absorption of vitamins and minerals.
Cutting out one of these categories of food is bad. Very bad. Don’t get hooked into fad diets that tell you to do that. What’s most important is the types of food you eat in each of these groups.
the simple rules
- Avoid prepackaged, processed, or refined foods. The closer the food you eat is to its original state, the better it is for you.
- Don’t eat foods that are white: Bread, sugar, potatoes, white rice. Substitute whole-grain if you have to.
- Eat six small meals a day. Keeping your insulin level constant will accelerate your progress.
- Keep it simple and natural.
