Is important to start your day off right, so do not leave home without breakfast, fifteen minutes is more than enough for the day in the best possible way, both physically and mentally. A full breakfast will consist of grains and fruits.
It is recommended by most nutritionists to make 4 to 5 meals a day. Thus eating less food, but you increase the frequency of ingestion, which improve the efficiency of your metabolism and avoid hunger appears.
Consume at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, provide vitamins, minerals, water and fiber.

Legumes (beans, lentils, chickpeas) are a major source of carbohydrates and proteins. It is recommended to consume at least two servings per week.
Dairy should be present in our daily diet, as they are an excellent source of nutrients: protein, calcium, vitamins (A, D , B12 and folic acid). In fact, calcium is an essential mineral to prevent osteoporosis and maintain strong bone structure and teeth. An intake of 2 to 4 servings a day is recommended.
Iron is an essential nutrient. Eat once a week red meat or seafood. If you’re vegetarian can rather eat beans, grains or nuts and combine with a dessert with orange, kiwi, strawberries or grapefruit.
Remember that carbohydrates provide around 50% of daily energy intake: pasta, rice, bread, etc. These foods are recommended for physical fitness exercises, such as bodybuilding, as they provide strength and energy to undertake such efforts, but are fully recommended in any sport.
