Nutritional Considerations for Hypertrophy and Peak Performance # 275

A very outdated, but still somewhat stereotypical, view of “eating to build muscle” is to load up on peanut butter, chicken, and eggs, and to eat as frequently as possible – often past the point of fullness.

My tried-and-true muscle-building diet tactics offer a framing that incorporates health and longevity – first to improve digestion and clear inflammation, and then to teach your body to use stored energy (i.e. excess body fat). Finally, I build an individualized plan based on YOUR unique metabolic rate, nutrient needs, and exercise intensity.

Today’s episode gives you my EXACT plan, that you can use to construct your own muscle-building diet (or, you can tailor it to lose fat instead.)

You’ll learn:

  • The Best Supplements for Gut Microbiome and Digestion Support
  • How to Build a Diet Plan Specialized for Fat Loss or Muscle Building
  • The Most Overlooked Aspect of Nutrition that Influences Hypertrophy
  • A Six-Pillar Framework to Optimize your Body and Achieve your Goals
