Guys after 50… do you want to build muscle? Nutrition is a huge key for building muscle over 50.
There are a few things I want you to focus on when it comes to your nutrition.
Number 1… INCREASE YOUR PROTEIN INTAKE. For older men, I am going to recommend eating 1.5 grams of protein for every pound of bodyweight.
Number 2… INCREASE YOUR WATER INTAKE. Drinking 120 ounces of water a day will help your body function more optimally, and give you tremendous benefits.
These are 2 staples that you need to start implementing!
On the side, you should combine CARB-CYCLING with INTERMITTENT FASTING. Combining these two will help improve insulin sensitivity, which is key for older men. Combining these 2 will help you burn fat and build muscle at the same time.
Intermittent fasting… make it simple. Don’t eat after 8pm..and wait till 12p the next day to eat.
Carb-cycling… Now if you are wanting to build muscle you are going to be doing resistance training focused around compound lifts. On the days that you are doing resistance training, you are going to eat complex carbs with good lean protein.
On the days that you are not doing resistance training, you are going to eliminate complex carbs…and replace them with fibrous carbs.
Another question people ask me a lot…is it ok to eat fruit. The answer is yes…but on the days that are doing resistance training.
Incorporate these strategies, and you will build muscle after 50!
