We all know that eating healthy, rich foods are no doubt the most important aspect to gain muscle and burn fat and the better results we’ll achieve both in the short and long term.

This includes eating the right kind of foods and the right portion sizes at the right time.

It doesn’t matter how many days you work hard at the gym, if you don’t give your body the right amount of proteins, carbs and fats, you will not get the results you want.

In today’s world, it can be very difficult to stick to a strict diet and that can be for many different reasons such as our daily activities and work schedule.

This is one of the main reason’s why a lot of people give up on their muscle building and fat burning goals.

Because of their current circumstances, they give up and begin to think that getting in shape is not for them.

The most common exercise that most people have is that they don’t have the time to eat clean.

It’s not that they don’t have the time, it’s because they have no idea how they should be eating, or they’re too lazy to make an effort.

But  reality it’s just as easy to follow a healthy muscle building and fat burning meal plan than it does to eat junk food all day long.

In this nutritional guide I’m going to outline a proven to work muscle building and fat burning guide that guarantees positive results.

As long as you change your current eating habits, this program will make it easy to begin eating  better food so you can be on your way to achieving the body of your dreams.

In order to burn fat and build muscle, your diet must meet these 3 objectives.

Fuel your body with the nutrients it needs in order to recover and grow.

If you are not getting the right amount of proteins, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins &  minerals in your daily diet,  it’s unlikely you can expect to build lean muscle mass.

There are 2 types of foods, both good and bad and each plays its own significant role in your overall health.

Bad foods such as simple carbohydrates will only make you fat. I’m talking bout junk food such as “fast food, sugar, sweets, ice-cream, pizza and chips (fries).

What foods are good for you?

If you add the following foods to your diet, you will build muscle and burn fat.

  • Fish
  • Whole Eggs
  • Egg Whites
  • Oats
  • Sweet Potatoes (not fried)
  • Natural Yogurt
  • Walnuts
  • Almonds
  • Peanuts
  • Broccoli
  • Olive Oil
  • Green Tea

Never Skip Breakfast

Make sure to eat a good breakfast within 30 minutes of waking up, as it is one of the two most important meals of the day.

With each meal you have, you want to make sure to include a good amount of fats, proteins and vegetables and complex carbohydrates such as brown rice or wheat pasta.

The second most important meal of the day is the one you have after you are finished your workout.

Because at that time, your body is in a critical state known for it’s high catabolic hormone level.

This is when you need to eat simple carbs such as a whey protein shake, a banana or orange.

Proper intake of food is essential for the maintenance or restoration of health.
