Your body relies heavily on the various nutrients to build and repair muscle, as found in a carefully balanced, protein rich diet that My Fitness Kitchn bodybuilding microwave meals in Sydney offer.
Here the creators of the best premade muscle meals in Sydney, break down the individual foods you should be including in your body building diet.
Egg whites are unquestionably one of the purest forms of protein in the world. With a protein to fat ratio of 60:1, it’s no wonder that they are a non-negotiable dietary requirement for body builders all over the world.
Turkey and Chicken
Lean meats such as chicken or turkey breast are full of protein and low in fats, making them a perfect addition to a body builders’ diet.
Although low fats are required for bodybuilders, fish is one exception. Salmon and tuna are an excellent source of protein and healthy fats with the added benefit of Omega-3, which helps support the muscle-building process.
Fibre is critical to muscle growth via healthy bowl function and insulin response. Beans are a wonderful source of plant protein.
Lean cuts of red meat are an excellent mass-building food. Red mead is rich in iron, protein and nutrients with a high calorie ratio per serving. For serious muscle gain however, most bodybuilders stick to chicken, turkey and fish for their main source of protein, with a little red meat added for variety.
A good source of slow-burning carbohydrates will help to fuel and sustain your muscles. Slow-acting carbohydrate foods such as oatmeal and sweet potato are great sources of slow-acting carbs, which supply a consistent source of fuel.
Additionally, those serious about building muscle mass include up to 10 litres of water daily to stay hydrated, as well as adding Whey Protein to easily and effectively increase daily protein intake.
