So just how important is diet to building muscle? You may have heard various things surrounding this topic, but the truth is it’s the key to your success with building muscle. Lifting weights is less than half the battle, in fact I’d say it’s about 25% of the battle. If not less.
When you go and workout in the gym, you are there for an hour or so a day. Then you come home shower and don’t have to think about it anymore.
With food, you never really can let your guard down. It’s more of a way of life. We eat a lot and every one of those meals should have some thought put into it. It takes a lot more effort than our gym trip, so be prepare to work for a healthy diet.
The thing is with a healthy diet, changing what you eat is going to not just change the way you look, but the way you feel, and the overall state of health of your body. We want to be strong, but we also want to be healthy on the inside, and we want to develop lean muscle.
When you begin to change your diet, sometimes it’s hard to cut out all the bad stuff, but each week focus on cutting out one bad thing and replacing it with something healthy in its place. By the end of a few months you will be well on your way to eating a good and balanced diets.
