Types of diets for mass set

Depending on what kind of products people prefer, there will be different diets for weight gain. There are three types of them: protein, carbohydrate and protein-carbohydrate. Also here can be attributed energy diet and vegetarian.

Strict protein diet

Strict protein diet adhere to professional athletes before the upcoming competitions. It is aimed not only at gaining weight, but also at burning fat.

Such a diet involves a complete rejection of fatty foods and carbohydrates, but with the use of foods rich in protein. If a person’s priority is not drying, namely mass gain, then such a diet will not work for him.

Protein-carbohydrate diet

Protein-carbohydrate diet is suitable for building muscle better than others. The menu is composed in such a way that the body draws the energy it needs from carbohydrate foods and fat reserves, and the building material for muscles takes from protein foods. Such diets do not imply strict prohibitions, they are suitable for everyone without exception.

Carbohydrate alternation diet

This version of the diet every day is gaining increasing momentum in popularity among people involved in sports.

It assumes compliance with 4 cycles:

  • Menus 1 and 2 days low carb. The amount of protein is 3-4 g / kg, carbohydrates, 1-1.5 g / kg.
  • Menu 3 days: carbohydrates – 5-6 g / kg of weight, proteins – 1-1.5 g / kg of weight.
  • Menu 4 days: proteins 2-2.5 g / kg, carbohydrates – 2-3 g / kg.

In the first days of the diet, the body spends reserves of glycogen and fat deposits. Muscles do not burn, as a sufficient amount of protein comes from food. When the second day comes to an end, the body begins to experience stress, as it receives a very limited amount of carbohydrates, so it starts to spend body fat more slowly, slowing down the metabolic processes.

To re-accelerate the metabolism, during the third day a person eats a sufficient amount of carbohydrate food. This is misleading, and it continues to consume fats, accumulating glycogen.

The purpose of the last day is to replenish glycogen stores and prepare the body for a new diet cycle.

Vegetarian Diet

Diet supplement brewer’s yeast, vitamin-mineral complexes. You need to eat often, but in small portions. For cooking should use the maximum variety of products. So that the muscles do not burn, and gain weight, you should eat food at least 8 times a day. In this case, 4 approaches to the table are the main ones, and 4 more approaches will be additional.
