Low Fat Diet for Bodybuilding

As we all know there are millions of different diets that we can choose from in order to lose fat fast. But with all the many different options out there that we can chose from we should have a method rather than choosing a selected diet that we use in order to lose fat.

Probably the best method is to look at the Glycemic Index or GI reading that you get from your carbohydrates that you select with each meal. The lower on the glycemic index your carbs can be on the index the less insulin you will produce and the slower your blood sugar will rise.

There are many different reasons why this will be an advantage to your ultimate objective of fat-loss but let's assume that you are also trying not to lose any precious muscle that you have gained. This means that you will also need to get the quality fats that will help you to produce the required testosterone that you will need to hold your muscle.

Bodybuilders have discovered the hard way that a low fat or a zero fat diet loses more muscle that a good well-balanced diet with the adequate amount of healthy fats. You simply have to eat fats even when you are on a low fat diet.

The complex carbohydrates that you eat is the selection of low GI foods that you select which will help you to lose fat fast. It is the correct selection of low GI food that will help you to lose fat and that is something that is going to require a bit of care and to always avoid fried foods.

Below you will see an example of the type of diet that you could follow that will ensure a well-balanced low fat diet that will quickly get rid of any excess fat that you might be holding. This diet is only a guideline but you can easily find out more about GI foods by reading the info on the package.
