The Anabolic Fat-Blasting Diet
The Ultimate Eating for Maximizing Muscle Gain and Fat Loss
As strange as it may sound, you can mimic the effects of anabolics by implementing a few secrets of anabolic nutrition. I'm not saying that you'll see the same gains as a 'roidhead; you won't. No natural diet will replicate the effects of anabolics. Your results, however, will far surpass anything you are currently experiencing, and that's a promise. The following nutritional strategy will revolutionize your bodybuilding life.
Friends, I have no interest in hyperbole or B.S. This nutritional strategy works. It took me years to find it, implement it correctly and reap the rewards. I had to find out for myself how to build lean muscle mass while keeping fat accumulation at bay. It was well worth the effort, though.
Please note that this method takes planning and commitment. You also want to make sure your workouts are up to par by implementing a well-thought-out training plan.
Before I go any further, I want to credit a few people as sources of great information and inspiration: Mauro Di Pasquale, Anthony Colpo, Gary Taubes, Dr. Michael Eades, Dr. Robert Atkins and Paul Cribb.
Why This Bodybuilding Diet Is the Best
So how can this nutritional strategy produce massive muscle gains? It increases anabolic hormones in the body in the same way that steroids do. The only difference is, it's safe and natural.
The diet will naturally maximize your body's production of testosterone, growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor 1. Sounds good, doesn't it? You'll also have controlled insulin spikes, which enable your body to experience a strong release of growth hormone and insulin at the same time. That doesn't usually happen, and you'll see extremely impressive muscle gains as a result.
What Causes Muscle Growth?
We've been told over and over again that the driver of muscle hypertrophy is excess calories; you must eat more calories than you expend to encourage muscle growth. I'm going to hypothesize something a little controversial. Calories are also an effect, not just a cause.
Think of a growing child. Are we to assume that vertical growth is caused by excess calories? I think that the release of growth hormone is what makes a child grow, and that in turn causes the child to eat more. We have posited causality the wrong way around.
The traditional advice from bodybuilding gurus is to eat everything in sight to increase muscle size. They usually recommend high-carb diets laden with oats, protein-and-fruit shakes, whole-grain bread, potatoes and rice, whether white or brown. Worse still, they often recommend a low-fat diet.
Hey, I thought you were trying to grow some serious muscle. If so, you're gonna want to keep the fat intake up. If I'm right, then what we want to devise is a nutritional strategy that ignites the release of anabolic hormones. In turn, the hormones let us know when and how much to eat.
How? Well, you get hungry—just like a growing child. See how causality has been reversed? It's no longer...
Excess Calories = Muscle Growth
Anabolic Hormones = Muscle Growth, which will drive your appetite and provide sufficient calories.
