The Negative Effects of a High Fiber Diet in Bodybuilding
By Lee Milligan Jr
Zinc contributes a major factor to the production
of testosterone. A high fiber diet can cause significant zinc loss and
subsequentially a drop in testosterone. You see fiber laces itself to the
digestive tract waiting if you will for zinc to show up. Being that
Fiber is of the lowest molecular weight, so natually the zinc will chelate
to the fiber and out it goes so to speak. Fiber cannot be absorbed through
the intestines so the fiber along with the chelated zinc goes to waste.
The counter productive effects of a high fiber diet cannot be underestimated.
Applying proper nutritional practices can contribute significantly to your
bodybuilding and strength training goals.
Please remember to always consult with your Doctor before
starting any new supplement and training program.
