Choosing from the large number of different weight lifting diets can be a difficult task.
BUT today… I’ll help you understand which type of diet plan is right for you and the goals you want to reach.
I’m going to make this very simple for you today so you don’t get caught up in all the fad diets and all the low carb, fruit only, soup only, cabbage diet, blah, blah, blah, AND BLAH.
I’m actually going to tell you all about the perfect diet to go along with your muscle building and fat loss efforts… it’s what we call the “WLC” diet.
Let’s Have A Look At The Perfect Weight Lifting Diet…
Most weight lifting diets out there today consist of either very high protein, low carb, low fat, high fat or something of that nature. None of them are actually balanced.
The WLC Diet is a balanced diet plan that requires wholesome and natural foods.
There are no bogus supplements that waste your money. There are no rice cakes. There are no frozen meals. There is absolutely ZERO processed foods on the WLC Diet.
This means MOST fast food is not allowed. This means many of the foods you find at the chain restaurants are out.
The WLC Diet requires that you eat a balanced diet consisting of lean protein sources, natural starchy carbohydrate sources, natural sugary carbohydrate cources, natural fibrous carbohydrate sources, and essential fats.
Everything about the WLC Diet is optimized for building muscle and burning fat. This diet plan will create the optimal environment inside your body for building muscle and burning fat.
There is not another diet plan in existence better than the WLC Diet Plan… not even close.
Let’s Look At Some Of The Details Of Our WLC Weight Lifting Diets
You can find all the details of our diet plans within the WLC System Manual, which you can get right now.
I’m going to go ahead and give you some of the major details of the perfect weight lifting diet right here:
30% Protein, 50% Carbohydrates, and 20% Fat
This is a balanced diet. Plenty of protein. Plenty of carbs for hard weight training workouts. And plenty of good fats for the optimal anabolic environment within your body.
Low carb diets don’t work for building muscle and burning fat. Your results in the gym will suffer. No need for 600 grams of protein per day… 30% is plenty.
Only Natural and Healthy Sources of Food
All your food sources should be natural and healthy.
For example… your protein sources should not be processed meats. Instead, they should be sources like grass fed beef from a REAL farm or free range chickens. You want meat that is free of steroids and antibiotics. Those substances can really screw the hormones within your body.
You don’t want to eat processed foods of any type. Protein bars are processed… no good. Rice cakes are bad for you. Frozen dinners are horrible. Stay away from processed foods.
Include Veggies Throughout The Day
A variety of veggies throughout the day with almost every meal is a requirement of the WLC Diet. Most weight lifting diets ignore veggies BUT not this one.
Veggies help create the optimal environment within your body for building muscle and burning fat.
Make up a big freezer bag of raw veggies and take it with you each day. Eat the veggies throughout the day with each meal. You will be amazed at what this will do for your results.
Eat a Full and Balanced Meal Every 3 Hours Throughout the Day
As soon as you wake up until you go to bed at night… you should be eating every 3 hours. Not just snacks. I’m talking full meals.
This means you should be getting about 6 meals per day on average. If you sleep long hours (which I would absolutely love to do but can’t), you might only get 5 meals in.
Protein, carbohydrates, and fats in each meal. Only natural and healthy sources for each meal. You can cut down the starchy and sugary carbs later at night and only have fibrous carbs like steamed broccoli for dinner.
Drink Plenty of Water…
Water is going to be your main source of liquid. Real milk can be another source of liquid along with whatever you have for your pre and post workout shakes.
Real fruit juices from fruit that you juice yourself can be another source of liquid. Other than that…
You shouldn’t be drinking anything else. Diet drinks are trash. Sodas of any type are trash. Coffee is trash. Drink water, real milk, and real fruit juices and that’s it!!!
You don’t need any of that other stuff PLUS you’ll save lots of money in the process.
Eat A HUGE Portion of Your Calories Around Your Workouts
Pre and post workout meals for your weight lifting workouts should consist of a HUGE chunk of your daily calorie intake.
You need carbs and protein directly before and directly after your workouts. You want the fastest digesting protein and carbohydrates that you can find so the nutrients get to your muscle mass as quickly as possible.
This speeds the recovery process and jump-starts the muscle building process.
Why A Balanced Diet is KEY…
I’m really not sure why everyone falls for all the gimmicks and tricks out there.
Low Carb Diets are absolutely horrible for building muscle. Yes, they can speed fat loss BUT they can also speed muscle loss for the natural trainer. Men and women on steroids and other drugs can get away with low carb diets for longer periods of time…
The natural trainer needs to stay away from very low carb diets for anything more than a few days at a time.
You need carbohydrates to make progress in the gym. Carbs are your premium fuel source. It’s like trying to run your car on water compared to premium high grade gasoline. Your body was made to run on good sources of carbs.
Trust me… good sources of carbohydrates aren’t going to make you fat. Bad sources of carbohydrates will make you fat.
Your body needs protein. Your body needs carbohydrates. And your body needs fat. Why would you NOT give your body what it needs? Stop fighting against your body and feed it what it needs. You will be rewarded.
Make sure you get your copy of the WLC System Manual. Simply follow ALL the guidelines for our weight lifting diets. Your results will be AMAZING… guaranteed.
