How to Eat to Grow Muscle FAST (Part 1)
Nutrition is AT LEAST as important as any exercise regime in a good bodybuilding program. Good nutrition is important for overall health but more importantly your muscles need the proper nutrients if they are to grow and give you the body you want.

Today I'm going to give you a few pointers on getting the right balance of foods that your growing muscle needs.

First thing is to change your eating patters a little. Instead of 2-3 big meals each day, you want to eat smaller meals more frequently all through the day. This will help you burn fat by keeping your body from going into catabolic mode (muscle burning mode)- you see, after four hours or so without food, your body switches into catabolic mode, where you begin to accumulate fat; a holdover from the days of being hunter/gatherers who literally didn't know where their next meal was coming from. Eating like this will crank your metabolism up.

Instead, eat four to six meals a day, about three hours apart.

The question is, "What should I be eating?"

Glad you asked. When you're trying to build muscle, balance is the watchword. You want protein, carbs and fat in every meal. The ratio you should be aiming for is roughly 40% of carbs, 40% protein and 20% fat. Getting all 3 at once helps your body use each element and gives you sustained energy without energy "crashes".
