3 Fantastic Foods
Below are foods that I consider to be indispensable for fast muscle building nutrition. These foods should have a part in your diet no matter if youíre doing low-carb, high-carb, or whatever. While these are indeed foods, they have almost medicinal properties when consumed on a regular basis.
These are three of my favorites:
1. Organic blueberries
Blueberries are thought to play a role in preventing cancer and cardiovascular disease. This is likely due to the fact that they contain more antioxidants than any other fruit or vegetable. I recommend the organic variety to avoid having pesticides negate the healthy benefits.
I shoot for 1 cup per day, usually in my oatmeal or in a shake.
2. Organic spinach
Another anti-oxidant superstar, spinach has been shown to lower the risk of almost every type of cancer. Itís also a very alkaline food, which helps to balance our generally acidic diet. Again, I recommend the organic variety to avoid those nasty pesticides.
I try to eat about a pound of raw spinach per week. I typically use it in omelets and salads, and yes, even shakes.
3. Cage-free Eggs
Full of high-quality protein, omega-3 fats, lecithin, and cholesterol (the building block of testosterone), cage-free eggs are a fantastic food. One study even found that people who trained with weights and ate eggs regularly got stronger than those who trained with weight but didnít eat eggs.
I personally eat at least 1 dozen eggs per week, if not more, since they are such a great source for fast muscle building nutrition. For most people the cholesterol is nothing to worry about, but you should check with your doctor.
There are a lot of great foods out there, but I think the three above have some of the most far-reaching benefits, both for your health and your physique. If youíve got some other suggestions, drop me a note and let me know your top three.
