Which is the best food for a bodybuilder who doesn't want to take supplements ? And how to eat it (how much daily) please help

Which is the best food for a bodybuilder who doesn't want to take supplements ? And how to eat it (how much daily) please help

Lean protein: The key is plenty of protein, any source. You can get cheap protein as whey or soy powder, and add it to your normal diet. Most supplements are of little or no value but you'd do well to try creatine for gaining mass. Generally eat healthy, avoiding the very greasy, salty, and sugary stuff. I can't tell you how much as your intake will vary with your aerobic calorie output. Glad you're lifting. ...Read more
