When it comes to reaching your bodybuilding and fitness goals you absolutely need to follow a well-balanced nutrition program. But the good news is that following a healthy bodybuilding meal plan doesn’t have to be as complicated as many people make it out to be. There is a simple rule of thumb that you can follow whenever you sit down to a meal that will make it super easy to ensure you’re getting the right ratios of nutrients.
- The key to a good body building meal is to think of your plate in thirds: one-third protein, one-third green vegetables, and one-third starchy carbs.
- The three keys to bodybuilding are training, nutrition, and mindset.
- Aim for healthy sources of fat: vegetables stir fried in olive oil; fish which provide omega 3 fatty acids.
