First let’s break down and simplify this important aspect of bodybuilding. You basically need to understand three things about nutrition:
1. The main purpose for each of the three macronutrients: Protein, carbohydrates, and fat
2. The right ratio, or the correct percentages, of protein, carbohydrates, and fat that your food should be divided into in order to meet your bodybuilding goals
3. The number of calories you should consume to meet your specific physique-enhancement goals
Good nutrition seems much easier when it is broken down and you look it at from that perspective. But what do the three macronutrients do for our bodies? What ratio of our food should be allocated to protein, carbohydrates, and fat? How do I determine how many calories I should eat? Those questions about nutrition provide a wide range of answers that are not necessarily easy to find. But, with experimentation, patience, and persistence, you’ll eventually figure out what’s best to help you reach your personal goals. Unfortunately, there are no easier ways around this fact. There are no magic numbers, solutions, or formulas that I, nor anyone else, can give you to make the process effortless—no matter what you are told. These answers not only vary from person to person, they also can vary within the very same person during different periods of time.
