In this episode, I explain what diet periodization is, why you need it to take your physique to the next level, and the three simple questions you need to answer to design the perfect diet for your goals.

Your training and diet should reflect your goals.

Your workouts and nutrition choices should work synergistically to help you reach those goals. It seems obvious, but many people fail to do it.

But with just a bit of planning, you can avoid this common mistake. Synching your diet and training together isn’t complicated. By assessing your goals and what they require, you can set up a successful diet and know how to adjust it as you progress through different training phases.

When it comes to body composition goals, there are three traditional phases of training:

  1. Mass Gain—Building
  2. Fat Loss—Cutting
  3. Maintenance—Solidification

These phases matched up with the right eating plan should maximize your results. Build a diet plan that works synergistically with each phase of training.
