Build muscle with these 3 major food groups in you diet

#1 - High Quality Protein

High quality protein is easily absorbable and is abundant in foods like lean red meat, poultry, fish, eggs, skim milk, cottage cheese, peanuts and whey.

#2 - High Fibers, Low Glycemic Carbohydrates

Carbs help absorb proteins and most importantly provide your body and brain with the required energy to last you all throughout the day. Include Carbohydrates in your diet to help you build muscle and maintain maximum hormonal environment within your body.

Foods like oatmeal, yams, brown rice and whole wheat products slowly release low glycemic sources of carbohydrates which will enable a steady flow of sugar all throughout the day.

#3 - Healthy, Unsaturated Fats

Essential fatty acids enhance testosterone levels in your body which helps in building more muscle and also improve metabolism which helps in absorbing your food faster. They will not make anyone fat, in fact, they are very beneficial in the muscle growing process.

Foods that are rich in these fats are to occupy major part in your diet. fish, nuts, seeds, avocados and liquids like flaxseed and olive oil etc all come under this category.

The three food groups that are included in the above discussion should form a major part, if not all, of your diet. Your meals should be spread over 5 to 7 meals a day.
