Nutrition And Diet Powerlifter


We all know what a "healthy diet". A healthy diet based on natural whole foods, rather than semi-finished products, contains a balanced amount of different kinds of food, and also provides just the necessary amount of calories to maintain a healthy weight. This is the diet that advises a qualified nutritionist. However, I do not think that the standard "healthy diet" for people like us, that extend the capabilities of your body physically demanding. Heavy exercise the body is subjected to unusual stress, and to fully adapt to them, special power techniques should be used to strengthen the load, rather than a "broken" body click. Many scientific studies have shown that athletes achieve better results when implementing advanced supply practices that go beyond the standard recommendations.


One of my good friend and highly respected colleague - John Berardi, Ph.D., a leading expert on sports nutrition. (If his name sounds familiar, it's because he wrote a preface to this book!) A few years ago, John has created a comprehensive nutrition program for athletes and fitness fans, called "Power Trim." I believe that this program is a perfect hybrid of old-fashioned simple guidelines on food intake more info, as described above, plus more advanced, based on a scientific approach, a set of recommendations to the specific needs of athletes nutrition.

The essence of "Careful food" program is the 10 food habits. I recommend to follow these guidelines in the process of passing the Programme of the maximum force.

It is proved that frequent consumption of food increases the body's metabolism and limits the accumulation of fat. If you eat, for example, 3,000 calories a day and spread those calories into six separate meals, your body read here will actually burn most of them to maintain body temperature, than if you consumed 3000 calories in two or three divided doses.

Another advantage of the distribution of daily calories between a large number of meals is that you consume fewer calories at a time. When you consume more calories than necessary to meet the urgent need of the body for energy, a lot of extra calories stored as fat. The abundant meals, the more calories and the more fat you accumulate. Consuming smaller portions of food with less time interval site, it increases the likelihood that you will require a sufficient amount of calories intake, satisfying the urgent energy needs, and thus fewer calories will linger in the form of fat. Here is an example of a reasonable meal schedules:

7:00 am - Breakfast
10:00 am - BRUNCH
12:00 pm - LUNCH
3:00 pm - SNACK
6:00 pm - Dinner
9:00 pm - Eating before bedtime

When you are in a hectic before, during and after a workout, actually get even seven meals a day. Believe me, it's easier than it sounds!
