changing your lifestyle into a healthier
one, you should start on thinking about
what you eat and how it affects your body.
The five rules of clean eating is the backbone
of proper health and nutrition.
1) Three large meals per day = poor
health and nutrition
Eating three times per day allows your body to change
into a catabolic state - a condition wherein
you lose muscles and gain extra body fat.
because your body thinks it is starving and will
start to feed itself on muscle tissues while storing
the consumed calories as fat.
To allow for good health and nutrition, you should
eat several (at least four to six times) meals daily
for your metabolism to increase. This way, your
body burns more fats.
2) 40% protein + 40 % carbohydrates +
20% fats = good health and nutrition
Protein, carbohydrates and fats are macronutrients,
which are necessary for the body to absorb and
use them properly. Pure carb diets makes your
energy levels crash instantly after you eat. Because
of this, the body stores all the carbs that were
In contrast, pure protein diets do
not work because the body needs an amount of carbs
to absorb protein in the body.
- 3) Meals without fats = poor health
Contrary to popular belief that all fatty foods
are bad for the health, fats actually helps
in hormones production and joint lubrication.
However, it is your duty to choose the good
fats to maintain proper health and nutrition.
These “good fats” are polyunsaturated fats and monounsaturated fats.A balanced nutrition should include these two fats to build muscles, develop hormones and lubricate your body’s joints.

and nutrition. Since approximately 65% of the
body is composed of water, the health of your
body lies in giving the 65% of water it needs.
When one lack water consumption, body processes
such as muscle building, fat burning and energy
production cannot be performed.
to this, your bodybuilding health and nutrition
will be at risk because metabolism increases
with sufficient amount of cold water.
5) A balanced, daily calorie intake
= poor health and nutrition
Caloric cycling is used to prevent the metabolism
from getting used to a particular caloric level.
When this happens, your workout will end up
with stagnant results.
Therefore, in order to
build muscle mass, your health and nutrition
should be carefully planned. For instance, plan
a 1000 daily calorie-intake for this week and
shift it into a 1700 the following week. This
way, your bodybuilding program will work effectively.
People who are fat, thin or averagely weighed
does not necessarily mean they are healthy.
Health and nutrition is evaluated by clean eating,
balancing and proper planning. Master these
five simple rules, and you’ll be on your
