Also they have a lot of carbohydrates that are quickly digested and give a lot of quick energy for active movement.

Especially recommended to eat the sweet fruit after a hard workout, eat a couple of bananas in the locker room immediately after exercise, it is one of the essential rituals of many body builders.

2) a Lack of protein. For quick recovery, and especially for muscle growth, the body needs large amounts of protein, so so prevalent all sorts proteins for athletes. Generally if you do not use sports nutrition and exercise, then you will be very difficult to consume too much protein, in 90% of cases you consume less protein than necessary.

On average, the athlete is required from 2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight, and preferably much more. There are even studies in the US that consuming up to 400% of the recommended norm of protein significantly reduces the risk of overtraining in athletes . especially training for increased muscle size.

The most protein-rich foods that are easy to get on the regular market, any meat, especially often use chicken breast, they are more accessible, and poultry meat is less harmful than pork and beef, also it easier to cook and more tender. Great also to use the fish from tuna to trout, eggs, cottage cheese is better low fat because it has more protein, any beans and nuts.
