Many bodybuilders have been brainwashed into believing that they need to eat clean all the time in order to build a decent physique. This is not the case at all. Eating clean all the time could in fact be counterproductive.
Living your life around the clock and always walking around with a box of chicken breast and broccoli is the definition of unhealthy obsession. Dedication is needed, but obsessing is working against you.
By building your whole day around bodybuilding you are limiting yourself. It’s also a sign that you are trying to overcompensate for something you’re missing through bodybuilding. Your body is not as fragile as the mainstream bodybuilding magazines want you to believe.
A slice of pizza will not kill you. By eating a little dirty food you are letting some of the pressure go out.
It’s better to schedule your cheat meals in order to avoid binge eating. In order words – plan your “failures”. Eating clean and dieting in general is one of the hardest thing in bodybuilding.
Because of the required nutritional acrobatics (and drug cycles) people call bodybuilding a 24/7/365 job.
However, this is not exactly correct. Many bodybuilders basically don’t eat clean at all. They count on the drugs to get them shredded and usually clean their diets just a few months prior to a contest.
Many of the famous muscle gods such as Lazar Angelov, Kali Muscle, Simeon Panda, The Hodge Twins, Jeff Seid and more to count claim that they are eating clean all the time, but how do you know it’s true?
You don’t! Their word is not golden and there’s much more to the story. Many of them cheat all the time and rely on drugs like clenbuterol and T3 to get shredded for a contest.
Of course, if you are natural bodybuilder you don’t have that “luxury”.
Do yourself a favor and follow a semi-clean diet. Don’t be a food whore, but also don’t become a food snob.
