But while I may not admire the diet, I admire the man. Dr. Atkins withstood an amazing barrage of criticism over the years, and continued to change his dietary recommendations to take into account new information. It makes perfect sense to workout fasted because of the fact your GH will be at an all time high and fat stores will be used for energy.You will also notice higher concentration and focus levels when you workout due to the hormones released. This is only scratching the surface when it comes to fasting and it's amazing benefits. As mentioned, the bodybuilder is in a very fragile state of mind due to a wealth of factors. The pre-contest bodybuilder may feel like quitting. After all, what is he dieting for? Twelve weeks of caloric deprivation for a chance to stand onstage in posing trunks to win a six-dollar plastic trophy? No thanks! The actual goal is to deliver a better "you" that you have ever delivered before - to defeat all previous showings of your own physique. Bodybuilders lose this vision when they feel fatigued, hungry, and bored for long periods of time. Cheat meals help to eliminate these feelings, if only for a short time. They also provide small payoffs before the finish line arrives on contest day.
