PIMP your diet folks!!

PIMP YOUR DIET and get lean with these 10 tips!!
1. Eat every 5-6 days a Cheat Meal and not every 2-3 days, you want to be slimmer and leaner, then remember this golden rule!

2. Avoid fried foods!

3. Eat healthy, but eat especially with enough variety, this is a mistake many bodybuilders or many athletes make. Do you want to make progress, do not eat chicken every day.

4. Eat every 3-4 hours, this way you will have your own metabolism accelerated .

5. Eat more fruits and vegetables.

6. Don’t starve yourself, a mistake that many people make. Nutrition provides a faster metabolism, no food only slows your metabolism down.

7. Don’t neglect your carbs, eat no more than 3 days very high protein and low carbohydrate. You need carbohydrates to burn fats and to have energy to get your workouts done. Check this link out for some examples of good carbs ;-)

8. Don’t neglect your fat intake, many people want to lose weight or get leaner and they eat virtually fat-free, wrong! Certain hormones act on fat, such as testosterone. The lower the fat intake, the lower the testosterone level, the higher the estrogen level. Resulting in muscle atrophy and increased fat around the abdominal area. Check the link below for more examples about healthy necessary fats in your diet.

9. Avoid refined sugars and processed food, because these are the ones that make you fatter.

10. This one is more for the ladies out there. Last but not least: Check your progress positively. Also check your clothes measurements instead of your weight. You may have lost lots of fat and replaced it by muscle ergo still weigh the same while having achieved what you wanted to. Losing a dress size for example and still weighing the same is a good thing. Fat is more volume, plus you need muscle to have that lean look your striving for. Also more muscle means a higher metabolism at rest. So if you pimp your diet and get some good workouts, check your measurements rather than focusing on your weight too much.

Hope these tips will get you started or keep you going and help you out making the right choices. Remember healthy doesn’t mean boring or tasteless. It’s all in the mind my friends ;-)

My apologies dear vegetarians, you’re welcome dear carnivores!

Hey gals and guys,

Let’s take a moment to talk about the right protein choice and have a closer look to this, yummie yummie in your tummie, option.

This time we will talk about steak, steak is the right choice of protein for lean muscle growth. 250g of steak contains 317 calories, 59g protein, 0g carbs and 9g fat. Depending on the kind of cut, the fat will vary though. Tenderloin being much leaner than rib-eye for example.
It is not the leanest source of protein, but for building muscle the fat helps to spare muscle glycogen and stimulates its own production of testosterone. Remember that the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn at rest. Becoming a lean, mean machine. Oh yeah!

The 250g steak also contains 45% of the daily intake of vitamin B12, which plays a vital role in the production of red blood cells, the body’s main mechanism for oxygen.

This 250g steak also contains 25% of the daily intake of zinc, an important mineral that is known for its antioxidant function and it also helps the anti-aging by protecting muscle and skin. In addition, zinc is also a stimulant for the own production of testosterone.

And last but not least, after eating this 250g steak, the body produces Creatine which plays a major role in building muscle mass.

Hope these stats and facts were as interesting to you as it was to me when I read them.

So remember to put the right stuff in your bodies if your goal is to have some lean muscle on your frame. Remember that you can train all you want but more than half the work is done in the kitchen the rest in the gym. Wanna get lean as F#$k, have a good steak just like in the pic above, with lots of veggies. No carbs needed especially later in the day.

Don’t be that guy on the right!!

I’ll be posting a vegetarian alternative soon, but being a meat lover myself I went for this post first. ;-)
