Build muscle and burn fat easily.... A healthy way of eating you can actually maintain
There are more diets out there than you've had hot dinners.... There are countless crappy supplements promising the world.... There's all sorts of advice being thrown at us about calories, macronutrients, micronutrients...blah, blah, blah.
Wouldn't you rather just cut out the bull* and learn a straightforward way of eating that'll help you gain lean muscle, keep your bodyfat levels low and maintain good health? A simplified strategy on what to eat, when, what to avoid to get the best results from your strength training program? Something that's easy to follow and maintain, and doesn't ban all your favourite foods, while still actually delivering results?
This is it. Strength Training Nutrition 101 is a sensible, do-able, manageable nutrition guide for men and women who lift weights (or others who generally want to improve their diet and overall health). I'm Marc McLean, an online personal training and nutrition coach, and Strength Training Nutrition 101 is my masterplan for maximising your exercise efforts. It uncomplicates the complicated and makes clean eating easy.
Are you confused about what to eat and when, because we're bombarded with so much advice from every angle? "Don't eat meat...." "Carbs are the devil...." "Eat a garden full of greens for breakfast...." This is just some of the advice we get from experts in a really noisy health and fitness industry. We're hit with advice on what we should be eating, how much we should be eating...and what we should be avoiding like an STI. This book is not about choosing one diet over another. It's about getting all the important stuff right and building a solid nutritional foundation, and then building upon this with strategies for sculpting a lean, athletic, awesome physique. It's also not about depriving you of food you love and eating chicken and broccoli eight days per week.
The bottom line is that sticking with good nutrition should not be hard work. It should be easy to follow, manageable, and never actually feel like a "diet". Since I took up weight training back in 1998, I've experimented with countless ways of eating for energy, performance, muscle gain, keeping my bodyfat levels low, and most importantly, optimal health.
I've studied various nutritional courses, read countless books and articles, and used myself as a human guinea pig over the past 18 years in the quest for the best approach for all the goals I mentioned above.
In Strength Training Nutrition 101, I share with you how to simplify the way you eat and my nutritional strategies that support my weekly weight training regime for maintaining muscle and staying lean.
