You are a bodybuilder but you still get those cravings. There is always so much to be wanted. You can still get tasty food even if you are in a bodybuilding diet. The secret is knowing what exactly to get.
You can have a turkey sub with lettuce, tuna and low-fat condiments like mustard, pickles and black olives. Make sure that it is on whole wheat bread. You can also make your own sub by just putting in a good 30 to 50 g of protein, 15 g of fat and 80 g of carbs.
Never get fried chicken nor the hamburger. Buns are bad for you. Get the grilled chicken breast and you can make it tasty by putting barbecue sauce. It will only give you 25g of protein.
For breakfast, you can have eggs. These give you the amino acid protein you need for the day.
Salad is also good for you just as long as it contains fiber. Steer clear of fat dressings. Go for low fat. If you want something light, go for unprocessed cereals.
Cottage cheese and milk are also great bodybuilding tools. These both have high protein content and mix 80% protein with 20$ whey. Cheese is high in protein whereas milk is high in calcium.
Fruits and vegetables also help in bodybuilding. They contain anti-oxidants and fiber.
If you want to gain enough quality muscle then you have to invest in a bodybuilding grocery list:
1. Chunk light tuna
2. 3 gallons of milk
3. 1 bag of chicken breast
4. 2 boxes of raisin bran cereal
5. 3 dozen eggs
7. 1 Powerade
8. 1 box of oatmeal
9. 1 jar of peanut butter
10. 5 lbs of beef
11. 4 containers of cheese
If you want a clearer example, here is a sample of a bodybuilder’s meal for the day.
For his first meal, he can have 2 eggs, 3 egg whites, 1 banana, 1 bowl bran cereal, milk and 32 ounce of water. For his second meal, he can eat a can of tuna with mustard, a cup of oatmeal, one tablespoon of peanut butter and 16 ounce of water. For his third meal, he can have a sub that has turkey, tuna, mustard, pickles, black olives and 16 ounce water. For his fourth meal, he has 30g of whey protein that is mixed with 10 ounce of milk and about 95 g of Powerade that is mixed with 8 ounce of water.
For his fifth meal, he eats 3 bowls of bran cereal, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and 16 ounce water. For his sixth meal, he dines on 2 cups of oatmeal, six to eight ounces of beef and 16 ounces of water. Finally, for his seventh meal, he chose down 1 and 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, 3/4 cups of oatmeal and 16 ounce of water.
Just keep in mind that a serious body builder would have to consume fat, protein and carbohydrates than someone who is not into bodybuilding. He must also have a schedule that he can stick to therefore making it easier for him and his system to adjust to the changes in his body. It may be hard at first but once the body builder is used to eating what he must in order to get the body he wants, it will be a cinch later on.
