There is little point in working out hard without providing your body with the fuel it needs. If you are serious about muscle building, you need to make sure you eat the right food at the right time. Learn why, when and what to eat as a pre-workout meal.
Lunch is the second meal of the day for most people. If you are on a mission to get yourself into shape, lunch should be your third meal of the day – after breakfast and mid-morning snack. It should be light but with enough protein, carbs and micronutrients to keep you going. Here are six lunch ideas for six pack abs.
Dinner is often the meal when we feel like rewarding ourselves. It could be because of a long and tiring day or due to not having much to eat during the day. That’s tolerable every now and then but not when it grows into a habit. Here are six dinner ideas for six pack abs to help you stay in shape.
Eating right is just as important as exercising for muscle growth. Ideally you should have 5-6 small meals a day to provide you with the right level of nutrition.

Over the past few weeks Skinny Muscles’ HQ has been transformed into a protein tasting lab. Numerous brands have been sending me samples of their latest products to be reviewed on your favorite fitness blog (the latest one being Kinetica Sports). I have been trying and tasting a whole load of protein powders in order to select the ones worthy of a review.
Every naturally lean guy who's ever stepped foot in a gym would have undergone a bulking phase at some point. But faced with the task to build as much muscle as humanly possible when gifted with a metabolism that burns calories like a furnace, which is the better option?
Most supplement brands offer their own protein flapjacks. They are meant to boost our energy levels, top up our protein intake and keep us going between meals. These bars have become the ultimate protein snack. Let’s see if they are really worth it.
They do say that 80% of the muscles are made in the kitchen. It is a controversial belief and not everyone agrees with it. Regardless of whether 80% is the right proportion or not, for the result you’re after, you need to workout, recover and consume the right food for muscles.
