Food that help muscle growth and development
- lunch - increase slightly the intake of carbohydrates, gradually working your way back to a normal diet, preventing drastic changes in weight and accumulation of fat. 
- as you begin to taper off the training schedule, adapt to a decreased intake of protein, which should be eaten in the proportion of the amount of time spend working out.

* always use fresh, natural ingredients and keep the food combinations simple.
* try to avoid candies, pies or sweets as well foods that have no nutritional values and do not play a role in muscular growth. These includes hot dogs, hamburgers, butter, soft drinks, package crackers, canned and frozen drinks.
