You should avoid candy and soda because they are empty calories and have almost zero protein. Also avoid :

-Potato Chips
-Sweetened Juices

-Simple Carbohydrates when not necessary


Carbohydrates are very important for bodybuilding as well. Carbohydrates basically give you energy for you to workout and go about your day. Any excess carbohydrates will be automatically turned into fat so don't eat more than you can use.

There are two types of carbohydrates, simple and complex. Sugar is an example of simple carbohydrates and bread is an example of complex carbohydrates. I recommend that you consume complex carbohydrates because it is more beneficial than simple.

Simple carbohydrates can actually leave you feeling depressed after an hour or so. The time to consume simple carbohydrates is right after your workouts. Complex gives you long term energy because it is slowly digested by the body.

What Are The Best Supplements For Bulking?


Protein is an absolute essential towards both bulking and cutting. Without sufficient protein consumption, the body will start to break down its own muscle; this process is called the catabolic state.

If you're trying to bulk up, you want to stay as far away from the catabolic state as possible. How do you do that? You would stay out of the catabolic state and in the anabolic state by providing your body with enough protein so it could build muscle. When it comes to protein, there are two main types: Whey protein and casein protein.


Whey protein is probably the most commonly used protein in the bodybuilding world. It is a quick dissolving protein that usually runs through your entire body in about an hour. The ideal time to take this protein is before and after your workouts.

By consuming whey protein before you workout, you would make sure that your body has enough building blocks to build your muscles with. By consuming whey protein after your workouts, you would make sure that your body has enough building blocks to repair the muscles that you were working on in the gym.

Another ideal time to consume your whey protein is right when you wake up. The reason for that is because your body is in the catabolic state when you sleep (because nobody eats in their sleep).

When you consume protein at that time, you flood your body with protein so your body doesn't have to break up your hard earned muscles for energy.

I strongly recommend Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Protein Gold Standard. Cheap, effective, tastes great and mixes easily.


Casein Protein is a slow dissolving protein that can stay in your body for more than 5 hours. It is derived from milk products so the protein found in milk is also casein protein. The ideal time to consume casein protein is right before you go to bed.

The reason why you would consume casein instead of whey before you sleep is because casein protein will stay in your body almost for the entire night whereas whey protein will get out of your system in a matter of 1-2 hours.

One might also consume casein protein before and after a workout as well so they flood their entire body with sufficient slow acting protein all throughout the workout.

I strongly recommend CytoSport MuscleMilk. It tastes great and really works. CytoSport also claims that MuscleMilk contains its patented leanlipid, which actually is considered "good" fat and helps burn regular fat in your body.


Creatine is considered an essential for most bodybuilders. Creatine is an amino acid found in the human body and also in red meat, fish... It is made from arginine, glycine and methionine.

Creatine plays a major role in cellular energy and helps regenerate ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) in the human body. Without ATP, muscle contraction is not possible. Creatine claims to increase energy, power output, and enhances muscle size and strength.

Creatine is by no means a steroid. Creatine is not a lab synthesized substance; it is made naturally in the body. There are many different types of creatine products out there:

100% pure creatine monohydrate
100% pure creatine ethyl ester
Creatine with Nitric Oxide mix
Creatine with sugar mix
