When it comes to nutrition, it seems as if most of the focus these days is centered on pre- and post-workout strategies. And while there’s no denying these are key times that play a large role in muscle growth and recovery, properly planning the rest of your day’s meals is just as important for reaching long-term performance goals.
In this episode of our expert-panel roundtable discussions, we invited Dr. Robert Wildman and Dr. Krissy Kendall to discuss how to structure an entire day’s worth of eating so you don’t leave any gains on the table. They lay out the guidelines for establishing daily calorie needs and how to determine optimal protein, carbohydrate, and fat intake. They also explain how to time your meals appropriately so that you’re getting the most out of your workouts, and how to time your supplements to see optimal results.

A lot of attention has been given to interventions to improve muscle mass. It is a complex process that takes time and patience. But it can pay off handsomely in the form of increased strength, power and stamina.
One of the best ways to accomplish this is through resistance training, in which you work out with weights. The key is to make sure you’re doing it correctly. Doing it wrong can lead to injury and poor results.
While you’re at it, it’s a good idea to include cardiovascular exercise, such as walking, jogging or dancing, into your routine. These are all great ways to boost your metabolism and strengthen your heart and lungs. Having a heart that is strong and fit will benefit you in many ways. And while cardio may burn off calories, it won’t build up your muscle, so a multi-faceted approach is the way to go.
As a side note, while the best way to increase your strength is through resistance training, it’s important to remember that exercise isn’t the only way to get fit. Getting healthy is also about diet and nutrition, and incorporating plant-based foods into your diet is one way to go. This is a smart move, as animal-based foods often lack the nutritional content necessary for optimal performance.
While a diet rich in fruits and vegetables may not be your cup of tea, it’s definitely a good idea to incorporate some of these foods into your diet. Plant-based foods such as nuts and legumes contain important micronutrients like potassium and folate, which are key to improving your overall health.
