10 Muscle Building Diet Tips
In order to get the proper foods and the best workout, here are 10 muscle building diet tips that will maximize your results:
1. Eat Meat
In terms of muscle building, plant proteins are not even close to animal proteins.
2. Drink Water
To run optimally, your body doesn’t need any other liquid than water.
3. Get Post-Workout Snacks
Simple sugars like milk, fruits, shakes, eaten post-workout can speed up your muscle building process.
4. Get Your Protein RDA
You should get about 1.5g protein per pound of bodyweight every day to build solid muscles.
5. Get Healthy Fats
You should eat healthy fats, like avocados, olives, fish (salmon, tuna, herring, sardines), peanut butter, to improve your own steroid production.
6. Eat Fibrous Veggies
Eat fibrous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, lettuce or any other salad greens to help your intestines to easily absorb nutrients.
7. Avoid Alcohol
If you want to lose everything you’ve built so far, drink alcohol. It will block your body’s capability to build muscle and it will increase fat storage.
8. Cook In Bulk
To ensure you have always a healthy snack around, cook your meals upfront for at least 3 days.
9. Eat Raw Nuts
Consume raw nuts on a daily basis to get solid proteins and healthy fats, both necessary in the muscle building process.
10. Veggies Over Fruits
To get the nutrients your body needs without the fat-storing sugars, you should eat more vegetables instead of fruits.
These muscle building diet tips alone are not enough to get the body you’ve always dreamed of. But implementing these 10 tips in your daily diet, and adding a great workout program to your daily schedule, can really catapult your muscle building process.
