The Best Diet During a Testosterone Cycle

Steroid-europe.com Review
4 November 2014

Just like training, nutrition is vital for optimizing your testosterone levels and increasing muscle size. You need rich intake of proteins and calories to make the most of your testosterone treatment. Testosterone will only bring results if you have enough proteins and calories stored in your muscles.

This is due to the positive nitrogen balance explained in the previous pages. Mass gains are only stimulated if you load up your carbohydrate reserves to the max; otherwise it will be impossible to gain mass, and instead you will lose what you worked so hard to gain.

Don’t skip meals, always prioritize healthy foods and eat if you are hungry! If you lose a lot of gains after your treatment, examine your diets composition to make sure that it is rich in amino acids and sufficient dietary supplements.

It is important to weigh yourself regularly and monitor your muscles size and shape in the mirror to observe your progress and adapt your diet if necessary.

 

Steroid + protection + PCT + diet + training + dietary supplements = results.

It’s as simple as that!
You must not neglect any aspect of this equation.

Testosterone is an ANABOLIC steroid. Okay, but what does “ANABOLIC” mean?

Anabolism is a reaction that allows your muscles to synthesize essential metabolites (proteins, carbs, amino acids, etc.) from the elements provided in your diet and various dietary supplements. 
This will encourage new tissue development and muscle growth.

Steroids promote anabolism by creating a positive nitrogen balance in your muscles.

If your diet is this large then you must take advantage of the anabolism to provide your body what it needs to renew your muscle tissue and acquire the muscle mass your want.

 

Example diet for bulking

During bulking gains you should consume more than you need so that you have considerable energy reserves at your body’s disposal.
Then it can store fats and you will gain the desired mass.

Here is an example of a 4000-calorie day, which is a rather heavy diet.

  • Breakfast

  • - oatmeal: 120g
    - milk: 25cl + cacao: 10g
    - ham or other meat (100g) + protein powder (20g)
    - 1 banana
    - fish oil: 10g
  • Morning snack

  • - nuts (almonds, walnuts, etc.): 50g
    - oatmeal: 40g
    - protein powder: 20g
  • Lunch

  • - crudités: one small plate
    - olive oil: 15g
    - quinoa: 120g
    - meat or fish: 100g
    - vegetables: one plate
    - 1 apple
    - dark chocolate: 10g
  • Afternoon snack (1 hour before workout)

  • - oatmeal or oat or barley powder: 60g
    - protein powder: 20g
  • During workout:

  • - 60g of high glycemic index carbohydrates + BCAA
  • Post-workout (immediately after) :

  • - 30g whey protein + BCAA
  • 1/2 to 1 hour after lifting: dinner:

  • - basmati rice: 120g
    - 4 eggs
    - vegetables: one plate
    - olive oil: 15 g
  • Before bed:

  • - fromage blanc : 300g

Example diet for dry mass gains

For dry mass gains, you must not consume too many or too few calories. If your body doesn’t store fat you will gain dry hard mass.

You won’t gain as much weight because bulking is not the objective.

Here is an example 2500-calorie day:

  • diet for dry mass gains

  • Breakfast:

  • - oatmeal 60g
    - milk: 15cl + cacao: 5g
    - fat-free fromage blanc (250gr) + protein powder (20g)
    - 1 orange
    - omega 3 capsules
  • Morning snack:

  • - nuts (almonds, walnuts, etc.): 30g
    - protein powder: 20g
  • Lunch:

  • - crudités: one small plate
    - olive oil: 10g
    - quinoa: 50g
    - meat or fish: 100g
    - vegetables: one plate
    - 1 apple
  • Afternoon snack (1 hour before workout):

  • - oatmeal or oat or barley powder: 40g
    - protein powder: 20g
  • During workout:

  • - 40g of high glycemic index carbohydrates + 5g BCAA
  • -

    Post-workout (immediately after):

    30 g de whey protéine + 5gr BCAA
  • - 30g whey protein + 5g BCAA
  • 30min to 1 hour later: dinner:

  • - basmati rice: 60g
    - 3 eggs
    - vegetables: one plate
    - olive oil: 10g
    - dark chocolate: 10g
  • Before bed:

  • - fromage blanc: 150g

And to show you that these diets are not so restrictive, here is a valid example for both dry mass gains as well as bulking.

All you have to do is adjust the quantities.
