Eat this to build a lean body!
When it comes to building a leaner, more athletic body at any age, nutrition is a huge part of the process.
You need to combine nutrition with your sleep, training, and mindset.
But what should you eat?
There is no one food alone that will build a lean athletic body.
You need to focus on a diet consisting of whole, nutrient-rich foods.
1. Protein – Make sure you eat a high amount of protein. A good goal is 1 gram per lb of body weight. Or, 1 gram per lb of lean body mass if you are overweight.
Protein sources – lean beef, chicken, turkey, egg, dairy, fish
2. Carbs – too often carbs are vilified. Carbs give us the energy to train. So stop cutting them out. The amount needed will be different for everyone.
Carb sources – Oats, rice, potatoes/yams, vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grains.
3. Fat – fats fuel many functions throughout the body, including our brain. They are essential to life.
Fat sources – eggs, nuts, seeds, nut butter, avocado, butter, olives & olive oil.
This is not an exhaustive list.
