All food is bodybuilder food. Just have to know when to eat it and how much of it to eat. Some of my favorite stories end with Dr. Ken Liestner ending his training sessions with a big tub of ice cream :)

Offroads point that he is making is that no food necessarily has to be eliminated altogether. But do not confuse this to think all foods are bodybuiler foods, they're not. The best bodybuilders are the ones who know how to incorporate just a little junk at times to keep themselves sane and from going off the deep end with it. Bodybuilding is incredibly competitive, in my eyes the most competitive of all endeavors. Theres not much wiggle room to be great if you don't give all aspects your entire dedication at all times. Those little things most certainly do add up and don't be led astray to believe burgers and ice cream = eye of the round and cottage cheese come show day.

The thread that Tom linked you too is a great one. Read that over and you should have an excellent idea of where to go with it. Do you have a training routine? There are some great templates floating around here in the bodybuilding section, look through those and ask questions if you're not sure. In my opinion 15 is the perfect age to start.

I add crab meat to the list. King crab legs already split open for you at Wal Mart for $14 per pound. It's good for 1-2 times a week but not a daily item for most people.
