Diet and exercise are always a good combination to improve your physique and overall health. Diets containing a balance of high protein, low carbohydrate and small amounts of fat can help you achieve your fitness goals, such as gaining muscle mass, achieving a lean and sculpted look, increasing optimal performance or lose body fat. Proper diet can help you feel the energy to keep up with intense workouts.
In Anabolic Diet, dieters follow a pattern of eating protein foods and fat on weekdays and high-carbohydrate meals on weekends. The basic idea is to use fat as the body’s main source of energy instead of carbohydrates. Consume fats in your diet also makes you feel full. To achieve this diet, you need to eat five to six times a day, a small meal every two to three hours keeps your metabolism running around the clock.
The Abs Diet helps dieters achieve a “six-pack abs look” with an eating plan diet consisting of 12 “power foods” such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, healthy fats and fiber. Some of these nutritious power foods include almonds, spinach, olive oil, whole grains, turkey and berries. You can also have a “cheat” meal per week. This diet includes a workout routine with strength training, ab exercises and cardio routines.
Ketogenic diet plans are based on the physical process of ketosis, in which the body converts fat into ketones in the liver. You body uses ketones as energy and ketogenesis even help accelerate fat loss. There are two types of keto eating plans, known as Cyclical Keto diets (CKD) and Targeted Keto diets (TKD). A CKD plan you can eat protein-rich foods and a limited amount of carbohydrates on weekdays and high-carbohydrate meals on weekends. You can use CKD if you want to bulk up muscle mass and lose body fat. TKD consists of eating protein foods and moderate levels of carbohydrates before and after exercise. TKD is good if you do high intensity cardio, like running, because the body needs carbohydrates for fuel.
