General Principles of the Bodybuilder Diet

The ultimate goal of the bodybuilder’s diet is the contraction of muscle, since it uses as fuel during operation of energy from nutrients provided by food. It is therefore necessary to understand the latter, understand the mechanisms of muscle function. Each muscle is approached by a nerve is divided, thereby guaranteeing the order of muscle contraction of the brain.

The muscle of the body is composed of muscle fibers. The same muscle fiber consists of myofibrils that consist of two types of proteins, actin and myosin, very important for muscle contraction. During muscular exercise, only a portion (approx 25%) of the chemical energy provided by nutrients is transformed into mechanical energy, the rest is converted into heat inside the body, with the consequences of a sustained muscular exercise can have on the functioning of our body.

The muscle can contract following three different processes depending on whether used their reserves of ATP or the fuel with or without the presence of one sufficient amount of oxygen, it should be noted that the carbohydrate fuel is there, while fatty acids and oxygen should get there through the blood.

Utility and role of nutrients:

From the study of muscle function, we can deduce that there are two types of nutrients: those that serve as fuel can be stored before exercise, or used during exercise, which allow the elimination of toxins and rebuilding muscle tissue after effort. Not forgetting the oxygen, this is essential before, during or after exercise, in order to assimilate these different nutrients.

Nutrients are the fuel to ensure the body’s energy needs. There are two categories: carbohydrates and lipids. These carbohydrates are divided into two parts, the rapid utilization as glucose, and use slow, represented in the human body’s glycogen reserves.

Carbohydrates are the fuel fast and should be used sparingly, reserving them for emergency cases: physical effort or signs of congestive carbohydrate (hypoglycemia). The slow carbohydrates represent the fuel to be used commonly, are reserved to the sustained efforts and prolonged.The muscle of the body is composed of muscle fibers.
