When you look at performance diets, at first they seem cluttered, expensive and all around fancy, however that is not the case. They have a few key components that are vital to your bodily functions and the ingredients are actually pretty simple. If you eat the correct food at the correct time, your body will make great use of it and use it to better your shape. If you haven’t been aware of these foods, which you probably have since you’re on the internet, run straight to your nearest market and don’t look back. Let’s take a peek at some of these delicious foods to see what exactly is it that makes them so great.
When you look at any decent bodybuilder’s diet, you will notice lots of egg whites included in lots of recipes. If you’re trying to be a bodybuilder and you’re not eating egg whites, not only are you missing out but you’re also falling short of your potential goals. Egg whites are some of the best readily available proteins, and adding some oatmeal to an omelet made of egg whites will give you a meal full of nutrients that will keep you going until your next meal.

When you’re shopping for eggs, you need to check a few things to make sure you’re getting the best product. First, you need to check the expiration date and make sure that you’re buying healthy, solid eggs without any cracks in them. Also, the place you’re shopping from needs to have the eggs refrigerated for best quality, so make sure to refrigerate them when you get home too. If your eggs are not refrigerated, granted, they won’t make you sick but you’ll be losing a degree of quality daily, so make sure to throw them in the fridge.
How to cook eggs ?
There are lots of ways to separate the egg whites from the yolks, including all kinds of gadgets and contraptions. However, the easiest and most efficient method without getting any extra dishes to wash is to just use your own fingers. Make sure you wash your hands to avoid any unnecessary unpleasantries and crack the eggs into a medium-sized bowl. This recipe is for a six-egg-white omelet, so crack six eggs and then reach in with your clean fingers and pull out the yolks with a very light touch.
Unless someone else in your house wants them, throw them away – you won’t need them. Throw some salt, pepper and possibly some spices in the egg whites and whisk it all together. You need to whisk the mixture until some bubbles pop up – that’s how you’re going to know that it’s done. Take a medium sized nonstick skillet and evenly distribute some cooking spray on it. Then, put it on a high heat and put the mixture into the skillet. After 15-20 seconds, you will need to reduce the heat to a medium level so you don’t burn your food. Afterwards, take a spatula and gently pull in on the edges, slightly tilting the skillet so the uncooked egg whites can slide underneath the cooked part. Do this around the entire pan until you are left with a mostly solid result.
After that, fold your freshly made omelet in thirds so that it looks kind of like a letter being folded to fit in a standard business envelope. Slap that delicious omelet on your plate (make sure you don’t drop it!) and eat it immediately. This recipe has about a hundred calories with 21 grams of protein and two grams of carbohydrates. If you do the math you can see that 23 grams of the whole thing will be pure nutrients, with the remaining 7 grams for everything else. Pretty good!
