There’s little question in anyones mind that nutrition is a very important part of the body building or muscle building process. Nutrition alone can lead to the success or the failure of your muscle building.
In fact, according to studies, yourÂ muscle building nutrition, even more than your exercise and your muscle building program, is responsible for as much as seventy five percent of the success that you have in any fitness program.
You can benefit your overall health by utilizing proper muscle building nutritionÂ methodology in your day to day diet. You will not only remain healthier, but will also succeed in lowering your fat and replacing it with lean muscle mass.
One of the most commonly used – as well as the best of the muscle building proteins is lean meat. Meat that is produced in a more natural, or range-fed way is the best protein to provide for optimal nutrition and good health. Animals which have been fed on grass, as opposed to those which have been fed grain, tend to offer the best and most easy to break down types of protein.
Note: Protein from red meats will digest much slower than proteins from whey, egg whites and fish. Therefore it would be less ideal to eat a steak 30 minutes before your workout with the hopes of utilizing that particular protein intake during your training session.
Whey powder is another of the very positive types of protein that may be eaten for optimal health. The quality and the type of whey protein which is used, again, makes a big difference in the quality of the nutrition that it provides. Lean meats or protein powders which have not been created using the right processes, or which have come from the milk of animals that were fed exclusively grain, or grain which was laced with antibiotics are not the right choice for those who are seeking a way to build more lean muscle and to do so in a healthy manner.
In order to maximize your gains from any exercise or muscle building program, you will need to eat some kind of protein after each workout process and preferably before. The time span directly following your exercise regimen is the time when nearly anything that you take in will be used by your body for the growth of your muscle and bypass the storage of that food as fatty tissue.
Knowing then, the kind of proteins which are optimal for your use, as well as the best time for taking those proteins in, you have the opportunity to optimize your workout and nutrition. In short, taking in the right protein, directly after a workout gives you the best chance to put your solid muscle building nutrition knowledge to work for you in a way that will give you the leanest, cleanest muscle that you can build.
That’s gonna do it for this one. For more information the best types of protein rich foods to eat check out my list of Top 10 Lean proteins.
Get after it,Â
