Bodybuilding diet

A bodybuilding diet should consist of more frequent (4-6) but smaller meals with a good balance of protein, carbohydrate and fat.  A daily multi-vitamin, meal replacement or protein powder can be added to supplement one's diet and ensure ample nutrients for muscle growth.  Each meal should consist of a quality protein source (eggs, chicken, turkey, fish, lean beef, whey protein powder) balanced with a modest amount of carbohydrate (no sweets! and limit the processed carbs) and of course plenty of green vegetables.  Starchy carbs and milk products should be tapered off later in the day.  Don't forget to drink plenty of water.  Nothing fancy but diet is just as important as training to obtaining a lean and muscular physique.
