You can forget about junk food. Junk food doesn’t build muscle — it only robs your body of precious nutrients that build muscle.
You might be surprised at what I call junk food… I am very strict on food sources – at least that’s what some people might think. I am this way because I know what works the best. Good
sources of food will allow you to make the fastest progress – and progress that you will find amazing.
The best sources of food for building muscle and strength and the only ones allowed on ANY of the WLC programs are natural sources of whole food.
Processed food is not allowed – processed food is junk food. This includes ALL fast food – it’s total TRASH. This also includes frozen dinners and most food that is packaged. If you look on
the ingredients list and you see ingredients that you don’t recognize, the food is junk food… no doubt about it. Don’t eat foods with preservatives. They will kill you.
Instead, I want you to choose only natural sources of food. This includes lean meats, starchy carbohydrates like sweet potatoes and oats, fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, and oils. I categorize
food into the following categories:
2. Dairy and Milks
5. Nuts and Seeds
6. Oils, Fats, and Butters
7. Herbs, Spices, and Sweeteners
8. Breads, Grains, Pasta, and Flours
9. Vinegars and Wines
10. Beans and Legumes
If you look at the categories of food above, you will notice that foods like protein bars, rice cakes, diet shakes, processed fruit juices, and fried foods just don’t fit into this program or any of the WLC programs.
The meal plans you will find for this program will include the categories of foods above. You will not find any preset meal plans here. I will tell you what types of food to include in each meal and a list of good food sources. From there, you can choose whatever you want.
It’s easy to categorize a food after seeing the list of foods for each category. These foods are foods that I am familiar with in my part of the world. In other parts of the world, there are tons and tons of different foods – foods that are amazingly good for you.
I do not know every food throughout the world and you won’t find every one of them on the list included with this program. Use your common sense on whether or not a food is natural and
good for you.
Just stay away from fast food, processed food, manufactured food, and any other junk food.
Look at the ingredients list for a food and decide for yourself. If the food had a large list of ingredients, you should put it back on the grocery store shelf.
Follow the meal plan recommendations, and you will do great.
Look at the next page for a list of the best food sources. Notice the different types of food in each category.
Every category of food has its purpose and is VERY important. For example, certain vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower will help to increase testosterone levels. Everything within this program is meant to help you build the maximum amount of muscle and strength. So follow all the guidelines closely and carefully.
No matter which program you are using, I want you to always limit the intake of bread, grains, pasta, and flours (even the ones you see on the healthy list).
You just don’t need that many of them. If you really have to increase the number of calories you need in order to build more muscle, you can certainly increase them and stop limiting them BUT only do so if you have no other options such as first attempting to increase meat and fat intake.
I want you to maximize the herbs and spices you include in your diet as well as vegetable intake. Eat as many fibrous veggies as you want. Pack your meals full of herbs and spices. These are very powerful in your quest for a better body.
I want you to make a goal to get all of the different foods listed on the next several pages into your diet over the next year. I want you to try different foods so you get all the different benefits of these foods! These foods have so much power that they can heal you from diseases, health issues, and turn your body into something you never thought possible.
