Important Bodybuilding diet tips:

- Drink plenty of water at least one gallon of water per day.
- Take a simple carbohydrate drink along with some whey protein right after your weight training workout.
- Take in good fats from olive oil, natural peanut butter and omega 3/6/9 caps.
- Make sure you sleep at least 6 to 8 hours every night to ensure proper recovery from your workouts.

Even more important bodybuilding diet tips!!

- Don't worry so much about your calories i.e. counting everything to the last percentile! Use the mirror and the scale to assess your progress. If you are gaining weight and your strength is increasing then stay with your current bodybuilding diet. If your weight is staying the same after a few weeks, slowly increase the portions of your meals and your overall calories.

- Pay extra attention to 3 meals of the day: Breakfast, post workout meal and your last meal before you go to bed. These will probably be the most important of your daily bodybuilding diet plan. Take advantage of the body's needs during these 3 times and maximize your nutrient intake.

Your bodybuilding diet should always be customized according to your age, weight, height, body fat percentage and goals.
