5 Types of Foods That Every Bodybuilder Should Be Eating

I know what you are probably thinking, that I am going to be talking about chicken breast and protein shakes. Although this has helped many individuals to put on muscle mass, the simple fact of the matter is that I’m not a person who advocates that type of eating regularly.

It will do in a pinch, but there are actually some other things that you can be eating which are much more beneficial to your health and overall growth. Here are 5 of them.

The first thing is raw vegetables, something that very few bodybuilders eat enough of. Just getting the fiber in your system alone is going to help to balance your body and make you healthier.

What many people don’t realize, however, is that greens actually contain an enormous amount of protein in its most basic form. It is easily assimilated by the body and it is alive.

Nuts and seeds are also something that is important to eat on a regular basis if you are trying to put on muscle mass. The problem is, bodybuilders feel as if they need to eat these in enormous amounts in order to get the amount of protein that they need. Nuts and seeds should make up a maximum of 10% of your daily diet, no more.

Sprouts are something that every bodybuilder should eat regularly. You can easily sprout any type of grain in your kitchen with a mason jar and a little bit of water.

Once the sprouts start to grow tails, they become live food and the enzymes are incredible. Eat them every day and you will notice a difference.

Fruit is also something that needs to be eaten regularly in order to help the body grow. Not only does it provide you with necessary carbohydrates, it also has a number of other benefits that can help to keep the body in balance and growing regularly. Eat fruit two or three times a day, it tastes great and it builds the body.

Finally, you want to make sure that you are drinking enough water in order to keep your body fully hydrated. I know that this isn’t a type of food but it is something that falls into the category of things that go in your mouth.

Drink half of your body weight every day in ounces of water along with some natural sea salt and you will notice gains quickly.
