5 Super Foods For Building Muscle

Omega Eggs: A great source of protein at seven grams per egg. The yolk contains most nutrients: half the protein, vitamins A/D/E and cholesterol to naturally increase your testosterone levels. Omega eggs contain many additional nutrients, and are a complete meal all by themselves. Don’t worry about cholesterol in eggs. Dietary cholesterol isn’t bound to blood cholesterol. If you have bad cholesterol, lower your body fat rather than throwing the yolk away.

Fish Oil: Reduces inflammation (joints/skin), lowers body fat, and increases testosterone levels. You need a fairly high dosage in order to feel the maximum benefits, and you’ll struggle to get that from eating fatty fish. Best to consider a fish oil supplement. I prefer the high dose EPA/DHA pills as there is more of those two nutrients, and less non nutritive fish fat.

Non-Farmed/Wild Salmon: One of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids that also packs 20 grams of protein per 100 gram serving. Farmed salmon is omega-3 deficient because it’s corn/grain fed. Always opt for wild salmon.

Berries: Full of antioxidants that prevent cancer, heart disease and eye problems. Any berry will do your body good: cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and many more. Buy fresh or frozen berries, and mix with oatmeal or add to your protein shakes.

Yoghurt: It contains bacteria that improve your gastrointestinal health. Don’t buy frozen yogurt, or yogurt with added sugar and fruits at the bottom. Get plain full fat yogurt. Eat it with berries, and flax or hemp seeds.

Happy Lifting!
