3 Superior Muscle Building Foods

Getting jacked and packing on lean muscle mass in a big hurry means that you are going to have to do more then just train heavy and hard. You are going to need to know the right foods to eat and the right amount of these foods to eat. After all, you grow when you are at rest not when you are in the gym. When your body is recovering, you need to make sure that you are giving it the right fuel.

If your goal is to gain 5 to 10 pounds of muscle mass in 4 to 10 weeks then you are going to have to make sure that you are getting the right amount of protein, carbohydrates, and yes, even fats. But you cannot think that you can just go around eating anything and everything. You are right if you are thinking that you can go to a fast food joint and pack on mass in a short period of time, but it will be the wrong kind of mass. You will need to come up with a well planned program in order to time your food right and eat the right portions also.

For those looking to gain lean muscle mass the best time to get your protein is right around your workout. This is when you can put down a lot of protein, carbohydrates, and fats and you wont have to worry about it turning to fat. These nutrients will be used to build muscle like at no other time of the day. This is also the best time of day to use supplements also because it will be absorbed quickly and help to rebuild muscle. It is also a good idea to drink a protein shake during your workout, the more protein the better.

Another key time to make sure that you will continue to gain is right after you wake up. When I say right after you wake up I mean right after you wake up. Before you do anything in the morning, you should drink a protein shake to break the fast of the night. 30 to 40 minutes later you should have your regular protein packed breakfast.

I know that you have heard certain foods emphasized over and over again, but these foods are the ones that you need to pack on the mass. I want to go over a short list of these foods, just as a reminder. The first one on the list is eggs. I am talking about whole eggs not just the whites. Tests have shown that people gain more muscle with whole eggs rather then just the whites. The next food on the list is of course is canned tuna. Not only is it inexpensive but each can is loaded with protein. Chicken breast is great also. It is easy to prepare and it is also inexpensive and loaded with protein.

Keep these simple ideas in mind if you are going to get serious about gaining any kind of real muscle mass. Do not over think it and you will be gaining in no time.
