The Negative Effects of a Low Fat Diet in Bodybuilding
By Lee Milligan Jr
We all can certainily understand the need and the
importance of protein in the diet of a bodybuilder. What we need to further
understand is the important link between Protein and fat. If you look at
how food is by nature, you will notice its equal ratio of protien and fat.
for example whole milk contains exactly 8 grams of protein and 8 grams
of fat. Why is this ? Why not 8 grams of protein and 1 gram of fat ? The
answer is clear. Because nature didn't originally make it this way. If
you research the fat components in whole milk you will find that it comprises
of Vitamins A and D contained within the fat portion of milk. The resulting
factor is this. Without the fat portion of milk, Vitamins A and D cannot
be utilized by the human body and the body is basically thrown into chaos
of sorts and protein and mineral loss are the end result. Protein with
its natural fat will provide the body with the properly utilized nutriments
to help rebuild and strengthen it to its fullest potential.
Please remember to always consult with your Doctor before
starting any new supplement and training program.
