In the previous blog, we discussed Eggs, Chicken, Greek yogurt, fish and Brown rice the top 5 foods for muscle growth. If you haven’t read that blog do check out 5 Best Foods For Muscle Growth ( PART – 1 )
And here is the list two of top 5 foods for muscle growth.
Beef is one of the best food when you are looking to put on some serious quality size. Protien is one of most important nutrient when it comes of building muscle mass and Beef is one of a good source of protien.
Beef contains many vitamins and minerals such as zinc, vitamin B6, iron, vitamin B12, niacin and selenium. Beef also contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are anti-inflammatory in nature and can help you burn fat and gain muscle mass.
2. COTTAGE CHEESE
Cottage cheese is one of the favourite food of bodybuilders as it is easyly available and contains casein protien which is a slow digesting protien which can help your body with a steady supply of muscle-building fuel.
Cottage cheese is low in fat, hight in calcium and also contains decent amount of magnesium, copper, Vitamin B1, B3, B6, iron, potassium, Vitamin A and zinc. One downside of the Cottage cheese is it is very high in sodium.
3. WHEY PROTEIN
As we all know Protein is termed the building block of the body and Whey protien is the purest form of protien.
Whey protein is bacically liquid part of milk that separates during cheese production. The Proteins in Whey are basically made up of essential amino acids, including leucine and cysteine that help with cellular function and muscle repair.
Whey Protien is best your body can get after that intense workout because it digests fast and quickly start that muscle reparing process and helps you start building some serious muscle mass.
Protien is definetly the most important nutrient to build muscle mass but fats and carbohydrates also play an equally important role in muscle building process. Oatmeal is an excellent source of carb ( Slow burning carb )
In short the most important thing required during workout or training is energy, Oatmeal is an excellent source of carb ( Slow burning carb ) meaning a long lasting supply of fuel. It high in fiber and low in fat and contains the essential vitamins and minerals required to gain some serious muscles.
A most common mistake done by most people who wanna build muscle is they focus more on carbs, protiens and forget fats. Frankly speaking Fats are as important as protiens when it comes to building muscle mass.
Almonds are a great source of healthy fat and protein. They contain many essential nutrients such as fibers, protien, Vitamin E, calcium, potassium etc that are very beneficial if you wanna building muscle mass
