What WRs Should EAT To Build Muscle

I think a lot of this depends on what your goals are. I cannot give you a diet plan that is a one size fits all WR plan. It’s impossible. Everyone has a different weight, size, height and goals when it comes to fitness for on field ability. But what I can tell you is that it’s all about calories, proteins and carbs when you are an athlete. To build muscle, which I am assuming a lot of you would like to do, you need to consume 1-1.5G of protein per pound of body weight everyday and be in a calorie surplus. So if you weigh 150lbs you should consume 150-200G of protein daily. This may seem like a lot but when you get into a rhythm, you will find that this is not super challenging if you are disciplined. Now a calorie surplus is consuming more calories than you burn. So eating a lot of carbs will help with this. When you workout if you are eating carbs like breads, potatoes, sweet potatoes, brown rice etc. you will burn those before you burn fat and muscle. So make sure you consume more than you burn. Now if you want peak performance you need to make sure they are healthy calories. I would try to avoid white bread, processed foods, sugars etc. You want to keep size but still keep performance. Now if you want to burn fat and slim down, you still want to consume a lot of protein but limit your carb intake to be in a calorie deficit. So that means burning more calories than you eat. I don’t recommend not eating carbs but try to limit the amount. The leanest I’ve ever been when it came to my physique was when I stopped eating bread and anything that came in a wrapper. Like chips, candy, protein bars etc. Totally changed the way my body looked, my performance and how I felt. Obviously I lost some weight as well but it was all fat. So if your goal is to lose fat I recommend doing that. Now all of this cannot be achieved if you aren’t doing the proper work in the gym.
