Default The Best Foods for Muscle Building

You need to consume specific nutrients at specific intervals throughout the day in order to build muscle.

You will have to eat high quality protein, natural/unrefined carbohydrates, and a small amount of healthy fat.

Foods that provide a mixture of quality proteins, carbohydrates, and fats in the right ratios are the best foods for muscle building.

You may already know this: proteins are the best foods for muscle building.

Each meal must contain quality proteins from healthy sources such as fish, lean cuts of meat, low-fat dairy, and protein powders.

Poultry also fall in the category of good foods for muscle building when in the form of boneless, skinless turkey or chicken breasts.

Protein helps to build muscle fibers, and so it is an important part of any bodybuilder�s diet.

A diet that is low in protein will seriously impede your muscle gains.

While it depends on how much muscle mass you want to build, your diet should consist of 30 to 40 percent of protein.

Carbohydrates help to trigger an insulin response, and this response puts nutrients into cells resulting in excellent cell growth; thus, carbohydrates are also one of the important foods for muscle building.

For every gram, carbohydrates add four calories to your diet.

Many carbohydrates also have essential vitamins and minerals.

Starchy vegetables (such as baked potatoes, sweet potatoes, and yams); whole grains; oatmeal; and fresh fruit are some good sources of carbohydrates.

Its always good to steer clear of highly processed sources of carbohydrates like doughnuts, white bread, and other baked goods; these are high in trans-fats (which is a type of fat this is extremely unhealthy) and provide only empty calories.

It may be hard to believe that fats are also necessary foods for muscle building, but they should be consumed in moderation in a healthy bodybuilding diet.

The healthiest fats are those that contain a high number of essential fatty acids; these fatty acids are those that cannot be manufactured by the body and must be taken from the food we eat.

Linolenic acid and alpha linoleic acid are the two most common essential fatty acids; these are also known as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, respectively.

They are usually founds in oily fish like salmon and in fats from some vegetables.

You can also get the essential fatty acids that you need by consuming a tablespoon of flaxseed oil and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil twice a day.

They are high in essential fatty acids, making them good foods for muscle building.

Proteins are the main components if you want to have that muscles you desire. But with the combination of both proper diets. Carbohydrates for energy in exercising and other techniques in order to have that desires muscles. And also determination to reach your goal.

Pretty good article, but looks like it is just a copied/pasted article to promote the e-book. At least they aren't promoting acai berries

yeah, did something bad go down recently about acai? my parents mentioned something today...but i haven't looked into it yet.

usually if oprah promotes it...it's a good idea to stay away.

I'd call it a pretty generic article. Reads like a million threads in a million forums written by a bodybuilding newbie who copied and pasted most of it. Who needs to buy an e-book to tell them generic shit they can find out on a thousand websites?

I don't know if anything new has "gone down" about Acai berry it's just a really widespread health scam. Dr. Oz lol. I think Jamie Hale just had a blog post somewhere about that...I'll link it.

I know the fda has sent out a lot of warning letters.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Nevermind, that post was about Dr. Oz and Reiki. I can't keep up with all the reality bending 'alternatives'.
