So, with that said what should you eat and what not?

Before you are going to be normally there is no any calorie burning and your body is in a state of rest so most of the bodybuilders now a days follow the rule of high protein low calorie meal

So you don’t have to eat a crazy amount of carbs you try to keep your calorie minimum and your have to up your protein intake so let us see some examples:
