5 Good Muscle Building Foods

The saying "eat big to get big" is almost synonymous with bodybuilding. You will hear it everywhere bodybuilders and muscle building enthusiasts gather. Just what does it mean? Well, let's talk muscle building foods.

5 Good Muscle Building Foods - What to Eat to Gain Lean Muscle Mass

A simpler way for someone who trains with weights is to eat five to six small meals a day. These meals should contain protein, carbohydrate, fats and micro nutrients. Your main focus should be on the quality of the food you eat. 

Without going into details about what food contains what amounts of what nutrients, here's a list of 5 of the top bodybuilders' favorite muscle building foods (not in any order):

They have received a bad rap due to the high fat content, but eggs are one of the best muscle building foods out there. Plus, they are perhaps the easiest food to prepare and easy to digest. Eggs contain a good amount of protein, plus vitamins and minerals. Make sure to eat some yolk in order to get the full value of the good old egg.

2. Fish

Rich in muscle-building protein, fish should be part of your weight training and mass gain diet. Salmon, sardines, mackerel, herring, and anchovies also contain Omega 3 (essential) fatty acids.

3. Lean beef

Like eggs, beef has been receiving some bad rap. Beef is not only rich in protein, but also contains creatine and other micro nutrients. Long before creatine came into the market some of the notable professional bodybuilders relied on beef for mass gain; as it turned out, they were right on the money. Unless you have other religious or health limitations, lean beef should be part of your diet.

Like beef, bodybuilders of yesteryear were right for gobbling down this stuff. Cottage cheese is rich is casein, which now basic ingredient of one of the most highly regarded protein supplements.

5. Turkey:

This bird is a good source of protein as well as vitamins and minerals. And contrary to what you might have heard, eating turkey does not make you sleepy.
