John Meadows – Two Things I Learned About Nutrition
Nutrition can make or break a physique.
That is especially true on a bodybuilding stage, but any type of transformation will be truly accelerated by a coach who can tailor a meal and supplementation plan to his or her client.
Here are two things I know to be true about nutrition because I’ve seen them in practice with hundreds of clients and myself.
1. The Importance of Pre-workout Nutrition
Despite what the experts say I continue to see more and more results in the trainees who really perfect nutrition around training. This is impressed upon me more and more as I work with hundreds of people. You have to fuel training properly, and recover properly to create the most and the fastest hypertrophy.
You don’t believe me, take your meal frequency down to 2 meals a day. Eat just breakfast and lunch. Cover your calories and macros perfectly that you normally would have in more meals. Now train in the evening….do this for 2 weeks and let me know how it goes. I can guarantee you your body composition will change for the worse and your recovery and training quality will be hindered.
2. Minimize fluid intake at solid meals.
Separating liquid from meals is one of the best ways to improve digestion. don’t drink any liquid 15-20 minutes before a meal, and wait that long after a meal.
Put these two concepts in practice and see your physique change dramatically.
