Body Building/Weight Training Diet

It was way back in the early 1990’s that I was into a mild form of body building.  Bodybuilding DietI started by going to a gym on a weekly basis where I got to learn how to perform the exercise routines correctly and along with my home multi-gym and loose weights I stuck to a regular four day a week split routine.

At that time my diet consisted of:

  • Low fat protein such as:
    • Lean red meat
    • Chicken or turkey with no skin
    • Fish
    • Skimmed milk
    • Eggs
    • Protein shakes

 

  • Carbs low on GI scale such as:
    • Beans
    • Corn
    • Rice
    • Oatmeal
    • Wholegrain
    • Strawberries
    • Bananas
    • Pears
    • Grapefruit
    • Apples

 

  • Fats such as:
    • Fish
    • Low fat cheese
    • Almonds
    • Walnuts
    • Peanut butter
    • Olive oil
    • Sunflower seeds

 

I AVOIDED:

 

  • Cakes
  • Pastries
  • Sweets
  • White flour
  • Sugar
  • High fat dairy or meats
  • Anything deep fried
  • Butter

 

I took a multi-vitamin each day and never felt fitter!  However life got in the way and the strict exercise routine started to be missed.  Before I knew it the multi gym was gathering dust and the loose weights delegated to the attic.
