The use of pharmacology in bodybuilding is associated with certain factors affecting their positive use. If you use steroids without adhering to certain rules of patania, then getting the expected results is very problematic. As a rule, beginner athletes suffer from this.
One of the most basic factors is considered a healthy diet at the stage of steroid use. Nutrition plays an important role in human life, since human health and its body shape directly depend on it. If you actively engage in sports, receiving advice from experienced athletes, but do not eat properly when the body does not receive a full complex of nutrients, you should not count on a positive result. Only an integrated approach to any of the problems can give a positive result.
The intricacies of nutrition when taking steroids
The most important nuance that should always be remembered is enhanced high-calorie nutrition. Anabolic drugs increase the rate of metabolic processes in the body, which leads to rapid recovery, to increase muscle volumes, and this requires the availability of building material (protein) and more energy and energy (carbohydrates). Physical exercises (including strength) are the reason that muscle tissue increases weight, but the body is engaged in the implementation process on the basis of nutrition, recovery, hormonal levels, etc.
Experienced bodybuilders increase the dose of drugs containing protein in 2 times. If the usual intake of protein consists of 2 grams per 1 kilogram of a person’s weight, then in the process of taking steroids the dose increases to 4 grams per 1 kilogram. When taking steroids, it should be borne in mind that nutrition during this period, in terms of diet, is practically no different from nutrition during mass collection, but food is taken with increased energy value (more calories and proteins). The diet should include foods consisting of 55-60% carbohydrates, 30% protein and 10% fat. Such proportions have a positive effect on the health of the athlete and contribute to an increase in muscle mass. The basis of the diet should be long carbohydrates (rice, buckwheat), as well as protein products (cottage cheese, chicken, eggs, protein shakes). It is equally important to eat foods consisting of fiber and a complex of vitamins. As a rule, they are found in vegetables and fruits.
Effective diet on the course
- Breakfast No. 1 - Hercules with 1 glass of water, half an hour after sleep.
- Breakfast No. 2 - 100 grams of buckwheat +100 grams of meat and vegetables.
- Lunch - 50 g of buckwheat + 100 grams of meat with vegetables.
- Snack - 50 grams of buckwheat + 3 eggs.
- Before starting training - carbohydrates + amino acids (or gaining a gainer).
- Dinner - 100 grams of buckwheat + 175 grams of meat + vegetables + 2 eggs (+ creatine, if necessary).
- Dinner No. 2 - 100 grams of meat + vegetables + 2.5 eggs.
- An hour before bedtime - cottage cheese or a protein shake.
As can be seen from the diet, the amount of protein is increased here. Buckwheat can be replaced with rice or eat them in turn. Eggs should be consumed boiled: it is advisable not to eat raw or fried. During this period, you can additionally use protein, creatine and amino acids to improve performance. To maximize the effect, the diet is divided into several meals, given rules such as more carbohydrates in the daytime, and less protein in the morning, but more in the evening. In this regard, the second dinner does not include long carbohydrates, but meat is consumed. An hour before bedtime, it is better to eat protein so that it nourishes muscles at night, preventing catabolism.
During periods of training, the body needs to drink plenty of water, so water should be drunk regularly and in full. Immediately after sleep, it is advisable to drink a glass of water, which will launch the stomach. This rule will be useful for everyday life.
