Some thoughts from sagi on the body beast eating plan
“To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art.”
The first part of this sentence is obvious; we need food to live. But there’s a big difference between just staying alive and actually bettering our bodies. Yes, you need to eat to survive – but to thrive, to allow your body to live up to its full potential, you need proper nutrition.
What you eat directly affects your body. Your body takes it in, then breaks it down and reassembles it into your brain and other organs, your hormones, your bones, your muscles – every cell in your body. So proper nutrition has a huge influence on improving our health and vitality, preventing disease, achieving desired weight, and of course building muscle. In order to become a mass of muscle, you are going to need to eat. A lot ! In fact, you might even say that making sure you get all those calories is the very crux of the entire beast program.
And that’s what i want to teach you to do in the body beast eating plan.
The plan consists of 5 to 6 meals a day – or even more, when you reach the higher calorie levels. (It is also important to keep your muscles hydrated with fluids, which should mainly be consumed between meals.) Each meal includes a mix of the three primary macronutrients: protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Some nutrition “experts” might stress the importance of one macronutrient over another, but the simple truth is that you need all three of them, given that they work together in building muscle and stripping fat.
Protein is the most important nutrient for gaining mass, because only protein can be converted to muscle. Your body breaks dietary protein down into building blocks called amino acids, which are then reassembled into your body’s own proteins, including tissue like muscle.
Carbohydrates are the primary fuel source for weight training. They provide your body with a source of quick energy. If you are too low in carbs, your body will pull them from other energy sources, including breaking down its own muscle.
Fat is another great source of energy for bodybuilding. It also helps fight inflammation from joint pain and muscle soreness. Fighting inflammation helps lead to quicker recovery. Also, essential fatty acids, namely omega-3s, help support growth and hormone production.
How to eat like a beast
Even though we throw some fairly complex concepts around in this plan, at its core, eating like a Beast is easy. It take three simple steps:
1. Figure out how many calories you need using the Body Beast Calorie Calculator (page 46).
2. Find the Body Beast Portion Chart that corresponds with your calorie level (page 52-55).
3. Satisfy those portions, using foods from these three great resources you will find in this book:
The Food Portion Lists (pages 58-66)
You are not tied to a specific meal plan, so here you can mix and match foods from the same group – just remember to stay within the allotted portions !
The Body Beast Recipes (pages 80 -108)
These recipes were designed with bodybuilding in mind. They are made with ingredients you can find in the Food Portion Lists, and many of them can be made in large amounts and frozen in individual portions and eaten throughout the weeks.
The Beast-0-Matic Mass Gainer Shakes (pages 78-79)
The beast-0-Matic gives you flexibility to make nutritions, high-calorie shakes using the Food Portion Lists and your own creativity.
It is that easy ! Of course, we will cover some of the nuances, like nutrient timing and supplementation, over the course of this book. Some of you may have years of experience doing these sorts of things. Others will be taking a serious look at their nutrition for the first time. Either way, do not let the details cause you too much stress, and do not worry about messing up. Sagi has actually designed an entire phase (Build) within which you can experiment, study, fine-tune, and figure it all out.
