Muscle Building Foods - Eat Your Way to Large Muscles

This isn't the normal type of article I would post, but I find it has some very helpful nutrition advice for everyone;-)

You have to make sure you're eating all the right muscle building foods if your goal is to build more muscle. It's true: Just as there are certain kinds of foods make it easy for you to gain undesired weight, there are also certain foods that will help you gain muscle.

The first and most important step is to watch what you're feeding your body. Would you put just anything in your car's tank? If your body's fuel consists of fast food and processed junk, it's best to cut that out from your diet.

If anything, your diet is probably more important than your training. Scientists have actually claimed that muscle building consists of 15% training and 85% diet.

You only work out an hour or so a day, and during the other 20 something hours you are either eating, sleeping, or working, right? Well, doesn't it make sense to watch what you are eating since you spend more time eating than working out?

When you're about to build some muscle, protein is the most important component in muscle building foods. You'll find this in food like chicken, eggs, fish, and red meat. They are packed full of protein, which you need for energy.

Believe it or not, you also need to consume fat as part of your muscle building foods. Natural fat, none of that processed junk. You can find the good fat in steak, eggs, and peanut butter.

When you're consuming fats, make sure you avoid trans fat. It's evil, because it doesn't benefit your body in any way and could in fact harm you.

Carbohydrates, otherwise known as carbs, are the last of the three muscle building foods. You should be eating complex carbs throughout the day to keep up your energy.

Oatmeal, whole grain pasta, and brown rice are all complex carbohydrates that will keep your sugar levels in balance and give you the energy you need for your workouts.

Syrups and sugary drinks contain simple carbohydrates, so they need to be avoided. These are the kind of carbs that can pack pounds on your body, which can process only so much glucose.

If you need a handy reference to remember what kind of muscle building foods are best, feel free to print these guidelines out as a quick reference.
