My Muscle Chow Story
Before I found this, I kinda went from website recipe to website recipe. Or to overly complicated cookbooks that were not for bodybuilders trying to get lean or build muscle. Greg Avedon nailed it with this and wrote to the married guy or single guy who can’t cook but wants to cook something in order to build muscle. It was so incredibly simple to follow. I am not a cook or chef by any means. My biggest accomplishment was grilled chicken and burgers. This is so stinking simple to use. It doesn’t have a ton of ingredients and you’ll find that many of the recipes use the same foundations. Meaning, less big trips to the store. Many of them are only 4 steps. They taste great and are low in fat and sodium. Perfect for that lean look.
It’s not that I didn’t know what to eat. It’s not that I didn’t know how to cook it. My main problem is similar to many of you. I get too caught up in making this sport or lifestyle more complicated than it needs to be. I want something easy to make, that tastes good that doesn’t take 60 minutes to do. I don’t want a huge mess in the kitchen and I don’t want to be in the kitchen for 2 hours each time. I don’t like to cook.
The biggest problem anybody will face when it comes to building muscle, burning fat and making the changes they need to enhance their body is all done thru nutrition. And the biggest problem we all face, unless you are OCD or love to cook is that you don’t have too many ideas and cooking isn’t enjoyable.
Cooking Isn’t Enjoyable (to me and maybe to you)
I’m not a food person. As Tom Venuto said in his Body Fat Solution, people he’s interviewed see food as fuel. A way to get the energy necessary to live and workout. But that’s it. I see food as fuel. I don’t like cooking or else I’d not have issues with eating often, eating enough and having plenty of cooking ideas.
My guess is that you don’t like to cook either! You don’t like being in the kitchen for hours. You have few ideas but not nearly enough.
But if you do like to cook but just don’t know what to cook that fits into the category of healthy, this book will solve it for you.
It’s your guide to leanness and your guide to packing on muscle. As much as that sounds crazy, it’s the only thing in 10 years that literally changed my life in the kitchen.
“Do you sit down to every meal with a calculator in hand? No? Me neither. Any diet that requires more than basic counting skills is a diet that is way too complicated and will ultimately fail.” - Page 3 of Muscle Chow
A Small Sample:
The Key Lime Pie that I pulled out of Muscle Chow took hardly any effort to make and was arguably the healthiest dessert you could have given the circumstances. Those circumstances being I love Key Lime Pie! But it’s proof that cooking can be quick and easy.
There’s over 150 healthy recipes in Muscle Chow. They are broken down into several categories. It’s more than enough ideas to get you lean and muscular. In fact, too many ideas is a bad thing. It leads to indecision and in the bodybuilding world, too many choices means you can’t plan for your specific needs.
The real secret to meal planning is advanced planning. Knowing what you will eat before you eat it. Not tracking it after the fact and realizing at 9:00pm that you’ve missed your target by 1000 calories or ate too much. Planning in advance is key and having easy to make meals that are geared towards your goals is what this book is about.
What Makes Muscle Chow Different?
It’s not just a cookbook. It’s not a diet. It’s easy to make healthy recipes that fit into a healthy lifestyle. You can use it to burn fat, build muscle. It’s not complicated. It’s low in sodium which is a factor for some. It’s lower in fats but higher in healthy fats.
If you don’t have Muscle Chow, go get it. It’s a fantastic resource, well written and should be in your kitchen right now. And you can pick it up at Amazon or Barnes and Nobles for under $20.00.
To Your Health,
“The NoBull Muscle Guy”
P.S. - I wish Muscle Chow was a sprial book as I’ve got 2 copies. And both are coming apart at the seams because I use it that much.
