5 Key Elements for Muscle Growth Nutrition
- Macronutrient Cycling
- Rotate Food Sources to Prevent Poor Digestion
- Accelerating Recovery and Proper Fueling for Muscles
- Natural Food Consumption
- Extra Food Availability
Natural Food Consumption
In many ways the human digestive system does not respond well to refined foods since they contain many ingredients foreign to the digestive system. Refined foods contain less nutrients that naturally existing food sources which limits the potential for muscle growth. Refined foods include bread, pasta, baked goods, pretzels and any many other foods that are naturally existing. Natural foods include protein from animal/fish sources, fruits, vegetables, potatoes, rice, Olive oil, nuts and more.
Avoiding Digestive Distress
Eating the same food sources on a daily basis is a recipe for disaster. The body gets sick of eating the same foods on a daily basis and will begin to respond with stomach upset, low energy, difficulty breathing, joint pain, mental fogginess and more. Rotating food sources is vital for success. EZ14 Digestive Enzyme Catalyst helps to replenish digestive enzymes that tend to be very low for those in a cycle of eating the same foods to often.
Macronutrient Cycling for Rapid Muscle Growth
Manipulating the amounts of dietary fat, protein and carbohydrate at certain meals each week is extremely important for preventing staleness. Just like training the nutrition plan must change strategically to prevent staleness, to increase muscle growth enzymes and naturally optimizing anabolic hormones associated with increased muscle growth. Increasing the amounts of carbohydrate from the right sources during the meal following training combined with the correct dietary fat and protein sources are a very potent combination to maximize muscle growth at that particular time.
Extra Food Portion Availability
Having the right food sources available at key times throughout the day is extremely important for driving consistent execution of a Athletic Muscle Growth Nutrition Plan. Many of our clients throughout the world use a chef service to prepare a large volume of great tasting food that fits the parameters of the plan. Skilled chefs can make suggestions for new menu choices on a regular basis to prevent boredom. Great tasting food is more likely to be consumed in the proper quantities especially for youth athletes who need a large volume of food consumption to grow.
