Most people associate the word “diet” or “dieting” with going on a temporary stringent eating plan usually restricted to certain kinds of food and with a big daily calorie deficit.
I am not saying this is a wrong association, and if I did it would be going against both Oxford Dictionary and Merriam-Webster (which would be very stupid). I just want to emphasize that there are different diets.
Besides diets for fat loss which I am assuming is the purpose of the calorie deficit, there are also other kinds of diets that have different purposes. There are diets to lower cholesterol and high blood pressure, diets to promote weight gain and diets to promote strength and muscle gain. They all clearly have their different use, but what I want to talk about now is the most successful diet to promote strength and muscle gain. You could call it a diet for strength training.
The Best Diet For Strength Training
This diet is unlike other not meant to be temporary, but actually to become a part of your lifestyle and the way you like and prefer to eat.
Notice that I write how YOU like and prefer to eat, not how I prefer to eat or some other guy prefer to eat. I think this is the number 1 most important thing for getting your diet right, because if it is or can become the way YOU like to eat then it will not be a problem for you to follow. You can then enjoy life, eat the things you want to eat and use your willpower on other (possibly more rewarding) things than restricting your eating.
Please understand that I am not saying you can eat twinkies and chocolate all day, but what I mean is that there definitely can be room (even daily) in your diet for some of your favorite treats enjoyed in moderation.
Because of this, I feel it is not so important to give you a diet plan telling what you should eat, in which quantities you should eat it and when you should eat it. That would just tell you how my diet is and how I like to eat. Instead, I want to give you general and flexible guidelines you should follow, and then tell you how you can educate yourself to be able to translate these guidelines into a diet YOU prefer.
