  • What is nutrition?

  • Why is nutrition important?

You should understand the answer to these two key questions if you want to successfully complete your muscle building or fat burning program.

Without the proper nutrition techniques, your bodybuilding or fat loss workout plan will fizzle. Without the proper nutrition facts and information, you will not be satisfied with the results of your muscle building or fat burning efforts.

Proper nutrition is as important for building muscle and burning fat as a proper work out or weight training program.

Here at build-muscle-and-burn-fat.com and Middle Management, we provide you with the right tools to help you achieve your goals. We have packed our nutrition guide with tons of useful tips and tricks to meal and diet plans, including what and how much to eat and when to eat it, all in a simple and easy to follow format.

So let's get started! The first step is to understanding the answer to the question, "What is nutrition?"

What is Nutrition?

In business, you can have an excellent process to develop, build and deliver excellent products. However, without the essential elements supporting the process - the right support processes, tools and people in the right roles - those products will never live up to the full potential. While they may achieve some success, the result will never live up to the company's expectations.

If your workout or weight lifting program is the process to develop an excellent product - the body you desire, for example - then those essential supporting elements are what make up proper nutrition.

Nutrition is one of the most neglected areas of any bodybuilding or fat loss program. Considering the amount of conflicting information available, especially for people who want to build muscle or burn fat, it is no wonder that we often miss the target on nutrition.

So, what is nutrition? Nutrition is the process by which we take in and uses food and supplements for health, growth, and energy.

Foods contain a series of basic nutrients that the body uses for these functions. These nutrients are:

  • Macronutrients
    • Carbohydrates
    • Fats
    • Proteins

  • Micronutrients
    • Vitamins
    • Minerals

  • Water

Now that we have an answer to the question "What is nutrition?" let's examine the second question: Why is nutrition important?

Why is Nutrition Important?

Consider again the example of the business process for building an excellent product. If we do not provide the right support to the design process, then the product will not meet our expectations. If your product was a car, you would not hand a nail gun to a banker to install the breaks, would you? Absolutely not. You want the right tool in the hands of someone with experience putting breaks on a car.

You absolutely need right tools in the hands of the right people to get the best results. This is why nutrition is important.

It is the same with your workout and weight lifting "process." You spent time planning and designing your workout and weight lifting routine to deliver your perfect body. Without the proper nutrition to supplement your bodybuilding or fat loss effort, you will never have complete satisfaction with your product - your body.

So, what are the tools to build muscle and burn fat? Those tools come in the form of those nutrients that we discussed earlier - macronutrients (carbohydrates, fats, and protein), micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), and water.

In addition to these nutrients, the amount of calories you consume are an important component of nutrition. You must balance the nutrient ratios to the amount of calories your body needs to build muscle or burn fat in order to truely optimize your efforts.
