You can lift every weight in the gym, everyday of the week, everyday of your life! But you will not gain muscle unless you feed your body properly.
Everyone has to nail down their nutrition regimen and stick to it if they want to achieve great results. Whether you are just starting to workout or you are current Mr. Olympia, you have to eat tons and tons of nutrient dense foods all day, and even during the night!
Why? Let’s say you go to the gym and run your body through the best chest workout you have ever had. Now, that ought to stack muscle on, right? Wrong.
What you have done is shred the muscles fibers in your chest and the other body parts that also were hit during the workout, such as your triceps, shoulders, abdominals etc. So, why do you need to eat? And what do you need to eat? There is an anabolic window after you workout that needs to be hit. You need to get fuel into your body now! Within 30 minutes of your workout. What should this meal consist of? A whey protein shake would be ideal. Add a simple sugar to this protein supplement and you have a perfect post-workout meal. Just add regular Waximaize to your post workout shake (make sure your use water, not milk or smoothie mix, water digests in minutes, the other two could take an hour or more).
This meal is vital to get in, right after the workout, but no meal is more vital than the next, they are all important. Never go more than 2-3 hours without energy being consumed. Any longer and your body will be put into a catabolic state, which means it will start breaking down muscle for energy and start saving every once of fat that it can because it feels like it is in a state of starvation. Hitting this state 1-2 times a week will not kill your gains. Hit catabolism 1-2 a day and your will not being seeing the results you want, period.
I do not care what supplements you are taking or how much you are working out, nothing is as important as your nutrition regimen.
