If you are a bodybuilder then you would have asked yourself at some time or another whether eating whole foods was better than taking supplements like whey powder etc. The question should rather be about the huge difference between processed foods and whole foods.
Whole foods are any and all foods that have not been processed by the manufacturer in any way. When looking at protein it means things like hormone free organic meat, free range eggs, fish with no added salt or preservatives and also organic chicken bred on a certified organic farm.
The bottom line when working out whether something is processed or not is to ask if it grew from the earth and does it have a mother. A good example is comparing a potato to a packet of potato chips with all the added preservatives and artificial flavoring.
If your objective is to gain good quality muscle that does not disappear if you stop training for a week or two then eating clean which means eating whole foods ONLY is the best way to go. If you want true health and longevity you need to make that extra effort to ensure that you never eat processed food.
The whole food diet or ‘clean diet’ listed below is a perfect example of how any bodybuilder would eat on a regular basis to gain the best rewards from those intense workouts.
Meal 1: 1/2 large grapefruit 1 cup oatmeal with 12 egg whites and 1 whole egg
