Learn what male bodybuilders eat from expert Skip La Cour in this Howcast bodybuilding video.


My name is Skip La Cour; I am a 6-time national champion, drug-free bodybuilder. You can learn how to improve your bodybuilding and training efforts by visiting my websites,, And today I'm going to talk to you about bodybuilding. I wanna talk about what male bodybuilders eat. Male bodybuilders eat the same foods that regular people who don't train eat: protein, carbohydrates and fats. Those foods are generally protein are lean meats: chicken, turkey, fish. Carbohydrates like potatoes, rice, vegetables and good fats. Whether it's in the form of flaxseed oil or good fats in nuts or avocados. A well-balanced diet; the difference between a male bodybuilder's diet and a regular person's diet are the percentages of protein, carbohydrates and fat and generally it's more protein, less carbohydrates, less fat than a regular person who isn't a bodybuilder. A male bodybuilder will generally eat more calories throughout the day and he'll spread those calories out with more frequent feedings--more meals throughout the day. A bodybuilder usually looks at his food as a means to an end. It's a way to build more muscle and to keep his body fat levels down. He doesn't look at it as a source of entertainment like regular people who don't train do. It's that type of consistency everyday, every week, every month, even for years that helps a bodybuilder build muscle and lose body fat. Bodybuilders also help their diet with supplements such as whey protein powder where they can get the protein they need and do it with fewer calories. And that's what a male bodybuilder eats.
