Fiber Builds Muscle Mass
Protein gains the most attention when it comes to body building, often pushing one of the most important nutrient groups to the side, fiber. One major benefit of fiber for an athlete is that it carries out the waste byproducts of muscle production. This type of waste build up in the system increases body fat and decreases overall body health. When that waste is not eliminated from the system properly, it exerts biochemical stress on the body. That stress then decreases the levels of growth hormones, which are needed in order for muscle growth.
In order for athletes to build the muscles that they need, a high-fiber diet is the key to success. For every 100 calories that are consumed, at least 1 gram of fiber should be included, with 1.5 to 2 grams for optimal results. For body builders and athletes consuming a diet of 3000 calories a day, a range of 30 to 60 grams of fiber per day should be maintained. Those numbers are important to strive for everyday in order to be consistent.
Studies have shown that body builders often consume more fiber than the average person, but their numbers are still below where they should be in order to properly maintain and build muscle mass.
