No program is complete without proper nutrition, especially when that program is all about building size and strength. What you do in the kitchen can make or break the results you produce in the gym. It’d be shame to train like crazy and then blow it on the (easier) nutrition side.
Shortcut to Size gives you a complete nutrition plan, so there are no excuses for failure!
TERMS YOU’LL NEED TO KNOW
Macronutrients: Fats, carbohydrates, and protein. Fats and carbs can primarily be considered as fuel sources, while protein is responsible for building muscle.
Micronutrients: Vitamins and minerals. These co-factors help your body utilize nutrients from foods, whether for fuel or muscle growth.
Amino Acids: The building blocks of protein. Essential aminos (EAAs) are the amino acids your body can’t make on its own; you need to get them from foods and supplements. Extra amino acids are needed to maximize muscle growth.
Protein is critical for both building muscle and as an energy source. When building mass, shoot for a minimum of 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight.
During the Shortcut to Size program, I suggest upping that to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight, and even closer to 2 grams on workout days to really maximize muscle.
To a certain extent, more protein produces more muscle mass, but protein isn’t all about growth. You also need protein as an energy source. Any excess protein you take in (that’s not going to synthesize new muscle) will be used for energy. Complete proteins, like animal proteins, provide all the essential amino acids your body needs.
