The Body Building Diet and Exercise Routine
An example of a day on this diet starts off with about 45 minutes of cardio. For breakfast, you would have oatmeal, an egg white omelet, and some whey protein. Three hours later, you would eat a chicken breast with a tablespoon of flax oil. The next two meals involve more whey protein, some fruit juice and more egg whites. Weight training is recommended in the afternoon, when your body has had sufficient time to absorb the carbohydrates you've eaten, which will allow for maximal exertion in the gym. The next 3 meals occur every 2 hours and involve lots of lean protein and complex carbohydrates.
Who should try the Bodybuilding Diet?
If you aren't going to put in a lot of time at the gym, do not go on this diet. It is designed for active people with serious bulking up goals. Because of the heavy exercise load that accompanies this diet, you can also improvise certain foods as you see fit.
