3. Fatty Foods And Snacks
Cheese & Nachos
This is an obvious point, but many bodybuilders and regular people who workout just to stay in shape binge on fatty foods right after they workout. Avoid fast foods, fatty snacks, oily foods, French fries and such. Do not forget that your main goal is to reduce the overall amount of fat, not to increase it. At the same time, your body needs to produce more glycogen, an important substance produced and stored in the muscles and liver. Fatty foods will surely not come in handy for that, not to mention that they will also elevate your levels of LDL cholesterol (also known as the “bad cholesterol”) and they will put you at high risk for heart disease in the long run.
