So, what type of meal plan should lifters follow?
“I see success on programs like the keto diet for around 3-6 months, but personally I think it’s very challenging to follow in the long-term,” White says. If you want something similar, but more flexible, try the paleo diet. You can get about 20-30% of your daily energy from carbs.
“If you’re an athlete and trying to build muscles, I think 50% of your calories should come from carbs—close to half your plate,” White says. “I recommend a variety of sources, like sweet potatoes, quinoa, and brown rice.”
In the end, don’t let your ego drive your nutrition choices.
