What are the best snacks for bodybuilders? It depends!!! You can’t answer this question in isolation because what matters is that at the end of the day everything fits perfectly into your nutritional plan. Its like playing the Grand Theft Auto video game and you only have time to pick up either a rifle or a handgun – which do you pick up? It depends on what you have! If you already have a machine gun and a sniper rifle then by all means, pick up the handgun. If you have two handguns already they choose the rifle! Snacks are exactly the same thing! What you choose for your best snack depends on what you have eaten and what you will be eating in your next meals!
What is a bodybuilding snack?
Definition: A Bodybuilding Snack is a high protein quick meal that can be eaten between classes or on a work break that does not require refrigeration, re-heating or any preparation.
Remember that a snack is a meal, its not license to have bad foods. Snickers might satisfy but its a HORRIBLE snack for anyone interested in health or bodybuilding.

If you dont have a nutritional plan then that is a big problem that will limit your ability to gain muscle – consider making one free in 90 seconds at CustomMealPlanner.
Do you need a snack because you are hungry?
You have to ask yourself too why you need a snack. Remember, there is nothing about magical about 3 meals a day you can have as many as you like as long as at the end of the day everything fits into your nutritional plan. If you need a snack because you are hungry then one of two things is wrong:
- You are not eating enough calories so you need bigger meals or more meals
- You are eating enough calories but not eating the right foods. Some foods provide lots of calories but leave you hungry in a few hours and others have hardly any calories at all but fill you up for a long time.
