“do you know what you need to eat to pile on massive bulk?”


Whole Eggs

You probably know that eggs contain protein, but did you know that the protein in whole eggs is actually easier for your body to digest than any other protein?
You can, and should, eat whole eggs every day. Many people talk about eggs and cholesterol, but you shouldn’t be worried about this. As long as the rest of your diet is healthy and you are working out regularly, a few eggs every day should be okay. If you already have high cholesterol or have a family history of high cholesterol then you may want to speak with your doctor before making eggs a staple in your diet.

Whole Wheat Pasta

Another great source of protein is whole wheat pasta. Whole Wheat pasta is also a good source of carbohydrates, something your body needs for energy. If you are working out, you need carbohydrates more than the average person, after all your body needs more fuel than the average person.
If you love pasta, always make sure that you choose whole wheat pasta, the carbohydrates in white wheat pasta burn too quickly in your body, causing you to feel a burst of energy and then a sudden energy crash.

Fresh Salmon

Salmon is essential to any diet because Salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. Not only does omega-3 help to speed up muscle growth, but it also helps with your concentration and overall brain function.

Almonds and Other Nuts

You may have heard that almonds are essential for building muscle, and that’s true. But it is not just any almond that you should be eating, you should only be eating raw almonds. When almonds are cooked, salted, or processed in any way, they lose some of their nutritional potency. On the other hand, when you eat a raw almond, you get all of the fast benefits that this amazing nut has to offer.

Eat Beef

Eating beef is a great way to give yourself a boost of energy before a hard workout. Beef contains a high amount of creatine. Creatine will help your body to experience a huge surge of energy that will last throughout any work out.  If you don’t have time to eat beef before your workout, you can also take a creatine supplement for an instant burst of energy.

Add these five foods to your diet to kick your muscle building to the next level.
