Halloween Natural Bodybuilding Survival Tips

HalloweenWith Halloween just a day away I figured that many of you would like to make a nice sugary addition to your natural bodybuilding diet in the form of candy. As a result, I decided to share with you my tips on how to cheat on your bodybuilding diet. If you follow these tips you can actually use the extra sugars to your advantage.

Halloween Natural Bodybuilding Survival Tips

1. Start your day with around 45 minutes of cardio: This will help to deplete your body of glycogen.

2. Keep your carbohydrate intake low during the day: Consume starchy carbs only with meal 1. For women, 1/2 cup of oatmeal with meal 1 will suffice while for men 3/4 cup of oatmeal (measured dry) is sufficient. Just eat vegetables like green beans, lettuce and/or broccoli with the rest of the meals along with your essential fats.

3. Have a tough workout before you start to cheat in order to minimize fat gain and maximize muscle: The reason for this is because after a workout the body is primed to absorb nutrients in the form of proteins and carbohydrates. Thus, having a cheat meal afterwards will ensure that most nutrients are used for recovery and muscle production. If you feel like challenging yourself try my full body challenging bodybuilding workout.

4. Take 200mcg of Chromium Picolinate and 300 mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid: Taking 200mcg of Chromium Picolinate and 300 mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid at the beginning of your cheat period helps to increase your cell’s ability to accept insulin, and thus, assimilate the extra carbohydrates better. As a matter of fact, increasing insulin sensitivity is one of the reasons why I like to have a big workout prior to the cheat period.

5. Eat Your Cheat Meals Wisely: Before you start your cheat meal have a protein shake. Since your cheat meal will come right after the workout it would be wise to consume a whey based protein shake (preferably whey isolate) in order to provide the amino acids that the body needs for repair. Then, once you have the sugars, the insulin release caused by it will deliver the protein right to where it belongs (the muscle tissue).

6. Try to Not Stuff Yourself: Definitely stop your cheat meal once you feel full. If you stuff yourself to the point that you can’t breathe you will not feel good at all. In addition, the low blood sugar period that will follow will make you feel even worse.

7. After You Are Done With Your Cheat Meal Go Back to Your Normal Bodybuilding Diet: No need to explain why we need to go back to our regular bodybuilding diet as soon as we are done with the cheat meal, right? Remember, it is a cheat meal; not a cheat day nor a cheat week.

Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!
