Strength training and diet.

Do you guys that are only concerned with developing your strength take your diet into account? Sure its ultra important for all the body builders, but how relevant is it for pure strength athletes?

I am focused on getting as strong as I can, and have progressed steadily over the past few months. I must say that I have a very poor diet even though I like a lot of protein. I also eat a lot of junk though. I could easily consume more calories on a daily basis.
Do you think this would help my strength gains? Should I cut out the crap?

Any advice or comments welcome.

    Voivod your diet should pretty much be like a bodybuilders. If you are concerned about your bodyfat levels then you should cut out the junk yes ( it's also better for your health in the long term and health is vital to be able to train hard ).

    Well the way I see it is protien and vitamins/minerals are the important stuff. Its your preferance after that if you want more weight for the pushing or want to look a little more defined. Either way its really a question of choice.

    diet is still important be it bodybuilder powerlifter or strength athlete, if you are not adequately re fuelling your body you will suffer. for strength i would advise a higher carb intake than a bodybuilder as you want the energy for event stuff and to able to get through cardio based GPP.
