No matter what anyone says, we are all striving for gainz. So here’s a list of my top 8 foods to help you gain muscle mass:
1. Beef – when it comes to mass building, there is nothing that comes close to beef. It’s the most valuable food for muscle building since it is packed with high quality protein, naturally occurring creatine, zinc, iron and numerous other microelements that boost muscle growth.
2. Chicken and Turkey – packed with over 20 grams of quality protein per 100 grams of meat, chicken is the most recognized protein source for bodybuilders. It is cheap and easy to cook. Turkey is packed with even more protein and is a very good choice for people, who are fed up with eating chicken every day.
3. Eggs – A staple in bodybuilding diets and a must-have breakfast component. With over 6 grams of protein per egg you get a very high protein food, which is relatively cheap. Eggs are packed with numerous minerals and vitamins and have the second highest protein biological value score after whey protein. Excellent source of protein and vital nutrients.
4. Salmon – One of the highest-ranking foods in terms of quality, salmon happens to be one of the richest omega-3 foods in the world. You get more than 20 grams of protein per 100 grams of salmon plus over 2 grams of omega-3 essential fatty acids. What’s better than this?
5. Tuna – Tuna is a wonderful choice for protein, since it has very high protein content and contains essential fish oils. Canned tuna is also a good choice, but make sure you are buying tuna in own water, not in oil. If you don’t feel like cooking, open a can of tuna and pack on the protein.
6. Milk – Milk is probably the most efficient mass gaining food, but it does contain carbs and fats that may cause you to put on fat in the process of gaining muscle. It contains over 3 grams of protein per 100 ml and a lot of calcium and vitamin D3. Skim milk (milk without fat) is a must-have component of every mass gain nutritional regiment.
7. Brown rice – The perfect carbohydrate source. Brown rice is better than white, since it contain more vitamins and minerals. It is also slower to digest, because of its extra hull, making it an ideal slow digesting complex carb, which provides constant flow of energy and prevents insulin spikes.
8. Nuts – Nuts are extremely nutrient dense and provide very high quantities of minerals and vitamins. They also have good amounts of protein and essential fatty acids. Nuts are great meal replacement when you are on the road and cannot afford a solid
