1. Soybeans & Beans

They are a good source of protein and unsaturated fats which help build up your muscles while adding vitamins and minerals that help regulate your blood sugar and fight free radicals.

Soybeans are also a delight for the taste buds.

2. Salmon, Tuna, Tilapia

These fishes are high in protein and rich in good fat (omega-3 fatty acids). The good fats are important because they aid in fat loss.

They also ensure the proper function of certain body processes like metabolism, and as you already know, proteins are essential for bodybuilding.

3. Eggs

They are model foods with their high-quality protein levels, vitamins, and cholesterol in the yolk, which grant eggs their ability to boost lean muscle build up and strength.

beyond these few facts, they are also easy to incorporate into lots of dishes and are inexpensive.

4. Cottage cheese

You may not know this but cottage cheese is rich in casein protein, which is the slowest digesting protein when eaten; meaning it helps in muscle maintenance and provides an alternative source of energy for the body other than the muscles, while you go for long periods without eating.

It is as yummy as it looks appealing, and now you need not bother about getting out of shape eating this food.

5. Milk

Proteins again take center stage in any bodybuilding related diet. Milk contains whey protein and casein which frequent the world of muscle building. It also contains high-quality nutrients and omega three fatty acids.

Milk is delicious and practically easy to get, so do well to have a nourishing cup every day.

6. Beef

Hold on, not just any kind of beef but the lean beef. It is loaded with an assortment of nutrients; from vitamins to minerals (zinc and iron), even to some high-quality protein, and all these help in muscle building and shedding of unwanted body fat.

Several foods like skinless chicken, oatmeal, tofu, quinoa, shrimp, greek yogurt amongst many others, also help in muscle growth and sustenance. So if you’re keen on looking and feeling fit, but not necessarily buff, you should try out these foods today.
