The thing that many bodybuilders don’t know about fitness & bodybuilding, is that food intake accounts for about 60%-70% of the success in muscle growth, endurance and motivation.
That’s why we present you 8 foods that bring your training to the next level and let you achieve a great figure faster.
- Greek Yogurt:
Greek yogurt contains about 23 grams of protein per 250 grams, making it a true protein bomb. Since protein is one of the key components to build muscle, this food is ideally suited to provide you with it.
An average chicken egg has a protein content of about 6 grams, which makes it a perfect natural protein food source. It is not without reason that many producers of sports nutrition see eggs as one of the biological protein sources of highest quality.
- Low fat milk:
Milk contains a protein content of 8 grams per glass (250ml) , which makes it a tasty source of protein. Besides, milk supplies the body with many essential minerals and trace elements. But beware: milk is not suitable for cutting cycles, due to the fat content (even in low-fat milk), you should rather drink water instead.
- Chia Seeds:
Chia seeds, in addition to its high protein content, are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acid, which is excellent for athletes who have an aversion to fish. Furthermore, these “miracle seeds” are famous for an extremely high content of antioxidants and fiber. This high-quality food supplies you with essential components for building muscles.
Cauliflower also has a high proportion of fiber and antioxidants, which makes it an excellent addition to Chia seeds. Furthermore, cauliflower can overwhelm you with its high vitamin K content, which acts anti-hemmed and thus optimally prevents injuries and can accelerate the regeneration.
The nitrates in radish improve your stamina, as they have a positive effect on blood flow. Two radishes for about an hour before your workout is the optimal solution. The difference will amaze you.
- Chocolate milk:
If you don’t have a protein shake at the moment, chocolate milk is an excellent substitute. The whey protein contained in it is especially useful after exercise, and the rather slow-digesting casein provides the body with protein for an extended period of time after drinking. However, the chocolate milk should only be used as a substitute solution and not continually.
Avocados were considered a taboo in the sportsman scene for a very long time, due to very high fat content. The polyunsaturated fatty acids in avocado cause just the opposite. They especially help in the bulking phase to keep the belly fat under control. Besides, avocado contains 20 essential nutrients as well as 10 grams of fiber, which should not be missing in your diet.
