Skip Lacour’s Simple Bodybuilding Nutrition – No Holds Barred Review

by admin on September 20, 2011

We have all seen guys at the gym with bodies that just don’t match their strength. I’m not talking about powerlifters—their bodies are the way they are for a specific reason—just ordinary guys who are strong, with lots of muscle but they just don’t look good. Specifically, I’m referring to guys who seem to be doing everything right at the gym, but they still look ‘dumpy’ or ‘out of shape.’

The reason they look like this is because they’re only getting the equation half-right: they do all the right stuff when it comes to training, but they are totally off the mark when it comes to nutrition. And the bottom line is that if you don’t get the nutrition part right, you’ll never have the body you want.

If you were to ask any of the greatest names in bodybuilding to tell you their ‘secret’ for building the bodies they have, aside from commitment and discipline they would tell you that the ‘secret’ is nutrition. It wouldn’t be their bodybuilding routines and it wouldn’t be the supplements they take.

What many guys don’t understand is that proper nutrition is the foundation for building a lean, muscular physique. You can have the perfect training routine and take all the best supplements, but if you don’t eat the proper foods, you will never have the body you want.

Skip LaCour is a guy who really seems to understand this basic truth. Skip is a Six-Time Drug-Free National Bodybuilding Champion and Success & Leadership Coach. Skip is a guy who really knows and understands the vital role that proper nutrition plays in building lean muscle mass. He shares his knowledge and wisdom with us with the Simple Bodybuilding Nutrition Guide: Simple and to-the-point eating strategies to help you reach your goals.

Let’s take a look and see what it’s all about.

The table of contents is one of the first things in Skip’s book to catch my eye—it’s really detailed and set up to make it easy for the reader to use this guide as a lifelong reference. It also makes it very apparent that you’re going to learn everything you need to know about the proper nutritional approach to building the body you want.

He opens the book with an excellent presentation of the facts about nutrition and bodybuilding. He also explains how most guys make things way too complicated, which ultimately frustrates them, leading to eventual failure and disappointment. Keeping things simple makes it much easier to follow and more important—stick with for the long-term.

Skip keeps it simple by breaking down his approach into three basic concepts that the book embraces:

1) the main purpose for each of the three macronutrients: Protein, carbohydrates, and fat.

2) the “right” ratio, or the “correct” percentages, of protein, carbohydrates, and fat that your food should be divided into in order to meet your bodybuilding goals.

3) the number of calories you should consume to meet your specific physique-enhancement goals.

Basically, the entire book is focused on making sure that you have all the information you need to grasp these essential concepts and more important, to use them pack on lean muscle mass and rid your body of unwanted fat, once and for all. And for those of you who like me prefer information that is written in plain language, free from unnecessary scientific jargon and lingo, you’ll find that Skip’s writing style is refreshing.

His book is an easy read, packed with relevant information without getting wordy or overly scientific.

Having been doing this for over 20 years, Skip knows where most guys get tripped up, and provides actionable strategies to overcome them. He also shows you how to answer the most common questions such as “How much protein do I need to eat every day? How many meals should I be eating? and What is the right combination for my body type and goals?”

He also includes sections for guys who have super fast metabolisms (the ‘hard-gainers’) and those with super slow metabolism (the endomorph). So whether you are looking to add lean muscle mass, shed unwanted fat without losing mass or even burn fat while gaining muscle, you’ll find the answers you need. He also includes sample meal plans to get you started on the proper path.

I’m happy to say that I really enjoyed reading Skip’s books. If you’re looking for a definitive, everyday guide to bodybuilding nutrition, you don’t need to look any further. Follow Skip’s plans and I have no doubt that you can realize the bodybuilding goals you want to achieve.
