Building muscle and loosing weight. It's common for the subject of weight loss diet pills to come up. There are many diet supplements on the market these days, but is' wise to exercise a bit of healthy ekepticism when you are considering what nutrition is important for your body.

Lot's of the weight loss pills are available on the market these days are simply caffeine filled wastes of money. Although speeding up your metabolism is a very important part of burning fat, caffeine is not the best, nor even all that effective a way to do the job. As you'll see in the next chapter on Exercises and Training Programs, there's a much better (and cheaper!) way to stimulate your metabolism.

The most important thing to remember when you're trying to loose weight and build muscle is to "eat clean". This is a term used by bodybuilders and fitness professionals that means to eat healthy and nutrient rich foods.

Simply feed your body the elements it needs to repair itself from the workouts you've been doing. We all know that eating foods like fried chicken and take away fish and chips is not going to give you the quality vitamins and nutrients you need. So what foods should you eat to stay on a "clean diet"?

Let's start with the essential: Water

Yeah, I know, water's not a food. But it is essential for your body to remain clean and free of toxins. Your body will create many by products while you're exercising and loosing weight and building muscle. Your body is also made up of about 80% water too... so you'd better make sure you're getting enough.

Fresh Fruits and Vegetables are the best source of carbohydrates for your body while you're trying to loose weight and build muscle. They'll provide your body with nutrients and energy that's quickly digested so your metabolism will speed up, and you'll feel more alive.

You need protein so re-build muscle cells. Protein has a few other great benefits that will also help you loose weight while you gain muscle. Protein can help you loose weight because it acts as an appetite suppressant. The best place to get your protein is from lean meats like chicken and fish, but it's also a good idea to get your hands on a quality protein supplement. It's probably one of the only supplements I'd recommend for anyone who wants to loose weight and build muscle. Whey (or soy) protein is quickly digestible and can give your body what it needs most directly after a workout.

Your meals should be about 2-3 hours apart, and you ideally should eat about 5-7 times a day. They should be small meals, but high in protein and essential nutrients. You carbohydrate supply should be from fruits and vegies, and you can use protein snacks like nuts, or protein bars / shakes to keep your cravings at bay while you go through your day.
