A healthy diet plan plays a huge role in your muscle building goals. There are certain foods that boost your energy and get your body ready for a kickass workout, those that fasten recovery and build, and on the other hand, there are those that only mess up with your system. That said, you have to choose the right food groups very carefully, or else you may be wasting a lot of time and effort working out in the gym.
For instance, you need carbohydrates in the morning to fuel your body, protein to enhance your body’s muscle-building capacity, and fiber to boost your metabolism. These are just among the many nutrients you really need.

THE BUILD MUSCLE, STAY LEAN MEAL PLAN
Bulking up: It’s a scary thought for many guys at the gym because it seems like there’s always a string attached. Everyone wants to add lean mass, but—and it’s a big but—a lot of us don’t like the idea of gaining bodyfat, even as little as a couple of pounds, which is the norm with most mass-gaining meal plans. Seriously, what’s the point of gaining 20 or 30 pounds if a good portion of that is fat? If you can’t see the muscle you’ve added, is it even worth having? In this case, we say no, which is why we provide you with the tools you need to add muscle while maintaining, not increasing, your current level of bodyfat. Read more…

You don’t really need to go on a low-fat, low-carb or low-caloric diet, you just need a BALANCED one.
It’s a no-brainer that protein is important, but you also need carbohydrates, healthy fats, calories, fiber, among other important nutrients. They all play an important role in your body. Again, you just need to make sure you get them from the right food groups, which means you have to eliminate processed foods from your diet!
So take a look at the foods in your fridge right now, are they enough to make your own stay lean meal plan? If not, maybe it’s time you give your diet a makeover.
