In this article we are going to talk about the top ten body building foods. I am sure that you are doing some push-ups and pull-ups and all sorts of exercises but that is just one side of you. You also have to make sure that you are consuming the right foods. Without further ado let us go ahead and check them out.
- WHEY PROTEIN (PROTEIN SHAKE).
The primary source of protein should always come from food but a protein shake is a good way to increase that intake to make sure you are getting all the protein you need. Make sure that you primary source of proteins should always come from your food as protein shake is just supplemental to your diet.
There are several different types of oatmeal. Oatmeal is one of the best source of cooper hydrate and is packed with a lot of nutrients that is pretty important to the whole muscle building process.
Eggs which is one of the most complete and versatile foods. The protein in eggs have a high biological value that aids in back breakdown and also muscle contraction. While eggs can be cooked in different ways, I choose to boil mine. Boiling is more convenient in the morning for getting ready. Eggs also contain many up minerals to keep you healthy and ready to go.
Regularly consuming healthy fats like the ones found in avocados helpboost the production of testosterone which make growth hormones in your body and we all know that those are two very important things to build in muscle.
- COTTAGE CHEESE.
Cottage cheese is a great source of packing on muscle mass. One cup contains approximately 27g of proteins which provides your body with a great source of muscle building fuel.Cottage cheese is also an excellent source of Calcium.
- SKINLESS CHICKEN.
I won’t go ahead and talk much about this because most of us know that chicken is a great way to pack on some muscle when talking about your diet. It is high on protein. The reason I am saying skinless chicken is because the skin contains primarily fat so take the skin off or buy it without the skin on it.
- GROUND BEEF.
Ground Beef is an awesome source of protein. It does have a little more fat than chicken and beef but it definitely has a lot of protein. Ground beef repairs the tissues in your body and the Iron in beef is easily absorbed making it an essential food for body building.
Fish especially Tuna Fish has a lot of protein factors in place and fish in general contain Omega- 3 fatty acids beneficial for building muscle and breaking down that back you want to burn muscle.
Almonds is another great source of healthy fat and also protein and the antioxidants in it is great for controlling your blood sugar after you eat meals and ultimately great for fighting diseases and stuff like that.
