Your Nutrition While Taking Steroids

Take Your Proteins

Increase your protein consumption (30 to 50 grams with every meal every 3 hours) – this prevents the body burning muscle tissue whilst you’re dieting. Good protein sources include turkey fish, chicken, lean red meat and whey protein. For those protein shakes – constantly make an effort to consume high-quality whey protein – casein proteins or not more affordable milk! In addition, whey protein prevents the muscle-wasting hormone ‘cortisol’. Whey protein heads directly into the bloodstream – ready for delivery to your muscles. And always make an effort to have a protein shake immediately after a workout – this is when your muscles need it most!

Drink Water

Drink tons of water – around 3 liters a day when you can manage it! My advice here would be to start early in the day! Drinking large amounts of water is very important if you’re taking a stack of steroids. You have to flush out those internal organs and furnish the water your muscles have to grow. Cut down on your salt as it increases blood presure and reduces makes it more difficult for your stomach to digest protein. Added to this, salt can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease and water retention. Reduce your consumption of fats from animal and dairy products – but ‘high fat’ cold water fish for example salmon, herring, sardines, and mackerel are great for your system and should be on your shopping list. Be sure to eat nutrient rich foods (tuna, chicken, salads, pasta, legumes, and pulses) and try to cut down on your own sugars, salts, and fats!

Eat Complex Carbohydrates

Go for complex carbs (bananas, brown rice, green vegetables) and cut down on simple carbohydrates (chocolate, cakes, chips, and white bread – even carrots!). Simple carbs will give you a short term boost but make you feel more lethargic when the boost disappears! Extreme workouts require higher doses of vitamins. It’s also worth remembering that steroids are not magic! They do not work on their own, a great healthy diet and exercise regimen are vital to achieving your goals.
