Simple Bodybuilding Meal Plans

If you’re starting out as a bodybuilder, you probably already know that working out isn’t just enough. Exercise and weight training isn’t just what’s required to build up your muscles and burn fat. Diet plays a crucial role in boosting muscle growth.

Therefore, eating like a bodybuilder is also as important as working out and sweating like a bodybuilder. The basic idea to get started and achieve your target goal is to learn about the best bodybuilding foods. A successful and healthy bodybuilder is one who ensures to eat a diet high in protein and fibre and low in carbohydrates and fat. In addition to this, the meal plans for muscle growth involves eating more often.

What You Need To Know

·         A proper and simple bodybuilding meal plan is important to have all the things needed for muscle growth.

·         The calorie consumption in a day should be in between 2,000 to 2,500. About 30% of the total calories must be consumed from protein, 55% from carbs and 15% from healthy fats.

·         Never skip a meal

·         Stop alcohol and caffeine rich drinks.&nbsp

The Good....

For most people, 0.8 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight per day should be good but to know exactly how much your body would need, talk to your trainer. Some of the best high protein meals include: salmon, chicken breast, pork tenderloin, soy, legumes, seitan, quinoa, buckwheat and mycoprotein.

Egg yolks and oatmeal, special protein-rich cereals and a protein shake is a great way to get your day started when had at breakfast. Green leafy vegetables, turkey, clams, lean beef, bean soup, tomato, lettuce, cucumber, sprouts, asparagus, tuna, broccoli and spinach are also best foods to build muscle.

Breakfast Meal Plan

The top trainers around the world recommend following a balanced meal plan in which your breakfast and mid-morning snacks should consist of 50 grams of proteins and around 70 to 80 grams carbohydrates.

You can either cook scrambled egg whites in olive oil or enjoy a bowl full of oatmeal with skimmed milk for breakfast. After about an hour or two after your morning meal, drink a protein shake with a banana, but don’t forget to switch to low fat yogurt and milk to stay fit and healthy at the same time.

Lunch and Evening Meal plan

The lunch of a bodybuilder must contain grilled chicken or turkey breast or tuna fish as it provides sufficient nutrients. A large bowl of salad with little fat is enough to calm down the hunger nerves in the evening.

A turkey sandwich or a burger, with a delicious protein shake in the evening is a perfect refreshment.


Saying goodbye to the day with chicken breast, sweet potatoes, green beans, steak, almonds and sirloin is a great way to boost up your bodybuilding process.

Make sure you don’t consume any fatty food before going to bed. In fact, you should try to consume as less food as possible before going to bed. In fact, it would be great for your health, if you do not eat anything at least 2 hours before going to sleep, as this will only sit or rest on your stomach why you sleep.  Your body won’t be active enough to burn it off.

My Opinion

So this is pretty basic stuff as a meal plan for a bodybuilder or anyone in fact who’s looking to build some muscle and stay looking lean and clean.  Ultimately this is my opinion of what works for me as well as my thousands of fitness and muscle enthusiast around the world.

But don’t take my word for it, create your own meal plan and find the foods that best fit your needs.
