WHAT TO AVOID WHILE BULKING
Fat loss and muscle growth are one package; in order to optimize both there are things you have to avoid while following a nutrition plan. You might think you are going by the book while you are letting some small details slip which in turn can sabotage your efforts.
Don’t leave a room for anything to prevent you from shining on!
#1 – “I WILL START OVER TOMORROW”
Are you always restarting your diet? Do you always postpone things for the next day? Well, trying out different transformation plans or pausing then resuming your diet won’t take you anywhere.
It’s time to commit to a plan of action. Start with a plan and stick to one, commit to it like a spouse a lifetime partner that you can never turn your back to. Remember that commitment is not an overnight occurrence. Just be patient!
#2 – PROCESSED CARBS?
Those labels which say low sugar, low sodium and superior health benefits; sometimes they are only partially true. Many of these products are highly processed and far from their original, natural state leaving you with little nutritional value.
Go natural. Nothing ever beats real food; make sure your diet includes sweet and white potatoes, brown, wild and white rice, 100% whole wheat bread and oatmeal.
#3 – DO YOU EAT TOO MUCH SUGAR?
Just like the wise saying “Too much of anything is good for nothing” it also applies on eating too much sugar. Too much sugar is increasingly being linked to a series of health problems from diabetes to elevated cholesterol levels.
Try eliminating your added sugar intake. You can eat all the sugar you want only once a week in your cheat meal, try to keep your diet mainly clean and complex in nature.
#4 – IS IT ALL ABOUT PROTEINS AND CARBS?
So you think you are getting the sufficient intake of proteins and carbs but is that all? No! Because actually you are missing out on such a vital factor for your plan to be successful which is eating enough fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats. They are necessary for building muscle, losing fat and improving the overall health.
While going for grocery shopping your cart should be filled with vegetables such as spinach, asparagus, broccoli, green beans, salads, and peppers among many others, also a variety of fruits such as apples, bananas and blueberries as they are packed with antioxidants. Lastly, don’t forget about healthy fat options such as olive oil, nut butters, and avocado.
