Eat Enough Good Fats

Post  sleepyme123 on Thu May 17, 2012 10:59 am

One mistake wannabe lifters make is to not eat enough good fats. When first beginning lifting and eating seriously, don't try your best to steer away from fats. Fats are actually important in growth. One good thing to know about good fats is that there is a direct relationship between fat and testosterone levels.

A perfect example of this is when bodybuilders diet down for a show, so to speak. They are limiting their caloric and fat intake to achieve that stage condition. However, when they are on this restrictive diet, it is impossible for them to grow.

That is why bodybuilders "bulk up" and then "cut up" because it's either one or the other. Good sources of fat is salmon which contains omega-3 fatty acids, essential fatty acids, flaxseed oil, and conjugated linoleic acid.
