Many bodybuilders know they need to have “good nutrition” to build a great physique but they are not quite sure where to start as nutrition seems complicated and mysterious – it’s not!
Bodybuilding nutrition is really quite simple if you use a top-down approach. A lot of the confusion people have that they hear “you should do this” and “you should do that” only to find that all the advice seems to conflict and doesn’t seem to fit into a bigger picture. In this video, self-taught, 30 years of experience coach Scooby is going to give you the bigger picture so YOU can put together your OWN meal plan to meet your goals.
A bodybuilders meal plan is very similar to a personal financial budget. Both are about making difficult choices and then sticking to the budget – in both cases, disaster strikes if you blow the budget. If you blow your financial budget, you end up over your head in 21% credit card debt. If you blow your nutritional budget you end up fat or weak.
