I spent MONTHS training at the gym while seeing very little muscle gains. And this lack of gains wasn’t because I wasn’t training hard enough. This was because I was not feeding my body a sufficient amount of protein in order to experience any major muscular changes within my body. And I definitely was not feeding my body the best muscle building foods.
Far too many people talk about the importance of lifting heavy and often. But also too many of these people fail to recognize the importance of getting sufficient protein intake. And that is why a lot of these guys are constantly disappointed with the results that they are getting!
I am going to give you 5 foods that you should more regularly include in your diet. And these 5 foods will go a long way to help you get those muscular gains that you really want!
Eggs are an excellent source of protein for a number of reasons. They are cheap, delicious, can be cooked in a wide variety of ways and are high in protein (most importantly). Some people will try and tell you that they aren’t meant to be consumed often due to their high cholesterol and the link this has to heart disease. But research has proven that dietary cholesterol has no link to heart disease!
The average egg contains about 7 gram of protein. This may not sound like much, but when you are frequently eating eggs (and more than one at a time), this adds up fast!
Eggs also contain a number of nutrients such as minerals, vitamins, carotenoids and iron. So that is even more reason as to why you should ensure that eggs play a role in your diet.
A pound of turkey has approximately 133 grams of protein. Not only is turkey really high in protein, it is also very low in fat! In fact, turkey is one of the leanest forms of meat that you can get! There is no doubt that turkey is one of the best muscle building foods!
100 grams of tuna contains about 30 grams of protein. Not only is tuna really high in protein, it can be used in a number of ways. Tuna can be mixed with rice, spread onto toast or eaten straight from the can. It is a really healthy and cheap way to end your food cravings.
Beans are high protein, high in fiber and super cheap! They are a great source of protein that taste good also. They serve as an excellent addition to meals and other foods also. This includes as an addition to salads, lasagna, mince, soups and various other dishes.
OK I just had to include this! A whey protein shake is super high in protein, can be very delicious and allows you to mix and experiment your own recipes for maximum taste and nutrition. A protein shake is the perfect way to end a great work out session at the gym. I usually finish my protein shake before I have even left the gym. And because there is a 30 minute window after your workout in which your body needs protein the most, a protein shake serves that purpose! Your body will absorb the protein from a shake a lot faster than from more solid foods. And this is a good thing!
Those are the 5 best muscle building foods that you should really include in your diet if you want to maximize your protein intake, and money left in your pocket!
