So you’re getting in your protein (1 gram per pound of bodyweight) and you’re eating plenty of vegetables (broccoli, leafy greens) next we need to focus on energy sources – carbohydrates and dietary fats.
You might be like Sebastian Stan and favour a higher fat diet. Not only will fats fuel your workout but they are essential for hormonal health, and support cell growth but they reduce inflammation helping you recover and build muscle.
By training your body to use dietary fat as fuel/energy it’s likely that it can better utilise body fat once a calorie deficit.
