Today, probably many can envy the world famous bodybuilder Phil Heath , who became famous for his championship at Olympia last year.
Judging by the number of fans, and mainly fans, he did not occupy fame even without a champion title. And with his victory, he only increased the circle of his close attention. It is also worth mentioning that in addition to winning the championship belt at Olympia, Phil showed excellent results in other competitions last year. Moreover, his appearance on the scene on the Cheru Classic was highly appreciated by many viewers. Amateurs and fans of professional bodybuilding remember their exciting confrontation against athlete Kai Green, whose winner undoubtedly became Phil Heath . Although the opponent should not be underestimated, because many bodybuilding fans preferred Kai Green, wishing him victory. Well then, we'll see how Kai will present his serious forms at this year's performance.
The subject of further information will be devoted specifically to the nutritional plans of the champion who won last year's Olympia - Phil Heath. Everyone knows that for every professional bodybuilder, a diet is a well-balanced program in which all its components are strictly weighed, and each product is translated into the number of calories consumed. This is not surprising, because all bodybuilders who are seriously focused on achieving the assigned task resort to such a strict discipline. More gentle methods of nutrition are used by amateur bodybuilders, for whom this lesson serves to maintain muscle tone.
When asking Phil why he is so scrupulous in dieting, he answers without hesitation: “In addition to the fact that a special diet is an obligatory element of preparing for competitions, there is a certain culture that obliges to represent the face of this profession.”
And so, what is the special feature of Phil Heath's diet? According to the champion himself, his diet is built on intuition. Having studied the long-known nutritional schemes with a certain content of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, calories and products of their possible substitutes, Phil uses these schemes, using them in a way convenient for himself. He says that about 400 grams of protein comes from the daily diet, the source of which is red meat, which is practically free of fat. Of course, here we are talking about whole fish meat. It is not surprising that, according to Phil, he makes home-made burgers that are 90% fat-free. This recipe is a vivid representative of how you can combine business with pleasure and health.
As you know, red meat contributes to the production of testosterone in humans. In addition, this hormone plays a crucial role in the formation of muscle mass. That is why the red meat product is the first on the Phil menu. Having vast experience in the application of various nutritional schemes, the well-known bodybuilder confirms that this particular product fulfills the anabolic task.
To provide the body with useful fatty acids, Phil introduces salmon meat into his diet, which he uses as grilled steaks. Strictly following a diet, his girlfriend helps the bodybuilder, who, just like he cares about his health and knows what products are absolutely necessary to maintain the “bar” at the highest level.
You can disappoint readers by saying that Phil eats chicken in rare cases. Chicken breast is a source of protein, which is not a priority for Phil, so he only eats it when he wants to add variety to his diet. On the contrary, egg whites and a variety of omelets, which Phil eats breakfast, are one of the dishes that the athlete prefers.
As a product that contains carbohydrates, the bodybuilder uses oatmeal. In total, he consumes about 600 g of carbohydrates per day. Phil Heath also includes about 100 grams of fat in his owl. But in general, the calorie content of the diet, which the bodybuilder developed for himself is 5000 kcal. Of course, it’s worth considering that this figure is exaggerated, because according to Phil, calorie content can fluctuate depending on “hints of intuition”. Moreover, as he himself admits, quite often he can eat foods that, to put it mildly, do not fit into his diet. But the obligatory component is the daily intake of a gallon of water.
Quoting what was said by the athlete himself, who declared himself to be a person with rather conservative views on the ways of his nutrition, we can conclude that such a conclusion is really worthy of respect.
