Eat To Get Ripped Fast
Post at 17:53 - 10/04/2018

Follow this plan to get ripped fast and build muscle

 

As you reduce the amount of calories you eat your body starts to burn fat for energy. But calorie cutting can make you lose muscle – so don't overdo it. The trick to get ripped fast: cut calories from carbs and eat more protein. This safeguards your muscle. If you cut too many calories your body thinks it's starving so it starts to conserve and store them, which reduces the rate at which you burn body fat.

This plan bypasses this survival mechanism because you'll be alternating between the two workouts and meal plans. During this phase, eat your carbsearly in the morning and right before you train to give you energy to exercise. On your rest days, eat according to the "Build muscle" meal plan to give you enough calories to recover properly.

This plan has to be followed in conjunction with the "get ripped fast" workout plan which you can read here.

Get muscle

To get ripped fast you need extra calories floating around your bloodstream, and it is important you don't get too many from carbs. Only eat carbs before and after you train to give you the energy to exercise and replace the energy you'll have lost during training. Bracket your "Get muscle" workouts with a protein shake to get easily absorbed protein at the time when your muscles need it most. On your rest days revert back to the "Get ripped" meal plan to ensure you're not porking up, but still getting enough nutrients to grow only lean muscle.
