The first thing that you need to know is that there is a big difference between the metabolism of a man and a woman. Women can not process fat like men, so the diet needs to be built on that fact since with the wrong diet you will be more or less just waisting energy without seeing any muscle growth! Men have the hormone testosteron, which helps them to gain more muscles, but women do not produce that hormone and need a good diet to replace thst fact!
The second thing that you should get used to is eating at least every three hours! If you are even an amateur bodybuiler, eating three times a day will just not suffice. Since you are constantly building your body, it needs fuel to recharge and grow. Once you get used to this you will be on the right path!
What kind of food should you eat? High protein food for sure! Proteins are one of the essentials for any female bodybuilder. Your portions should be small, but rich with protein like chicken, fish or supplements through the whole day.
Always start the day with a big breakfast. It can speed up your metabolism and it will get you started for the day to come. Something that you also should get used to is to have a protein and fat combination before going to bed. This will give you body fuel for the sleep/regeneration period. Here are some food examples:
Complex Carbs: Oatmeal, Sweet Potatoes, Beans, Oat Bran Cereal, Brown Rice, Pasta and Potatoes.
Proteins: Rib eye Steaks, Roasts, Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast, Tuna, or White Meat Chicken, Fish and Shrimp, Extra Lean Ground Beef, Protein Powder, Egg Whites ( get used to eggs because they are protein rich and should become a steady food in your diet!)
Fruits and Vegetables
“Healthy” Fats: Natural or Organic Peanut Butter, Olive or Sunflower Oil, Nuts and avocado
