Hi, I am very new to this site, introduced to it, via my fiancee, via a golfing website. However all the nutritonal wonderings have me intrigued. I am an Australian Naturopath (rather different to American Naturopaths in the way we are taught and practice, from what I have been told). Anyway. just wanted to give you a little background.
One thing I can’t help but notice, is the complete lack of vegetables in your diet?
Is that a mistake in my reading or do you really not consume vegetables? Is this common practice amoungst body builders?.
Do you take nutritional supplements, such vitamin B complexes ect?
There are many nutrients needed for the body to be able to convert consumed protiens/ amino acids into muscle in the body, and to protect from muscle breakdown. These nuttrients are essential for muscle repair after strenous workouts also.
Of couse a lot of the nutrients can be found in your green leafy vegetables, yellow and orange and green vegetables and fruits.
however, for the amount of training that you do, I would assume taht you would need much higher amounts of a wide variety of nutrients than could be gained from dietry sources alone, making a comprehensive nutrinet supplement regieme essential. I appologise if this is old news, as I said, I am new to the site.
