Personal Trainer Santa Monica – Best Foods To Build Muscle

your trainer, Mr. America Jason Kozma

In order to build muscle, you’ll need to start lifting heavy weights. The results from a workout depend entirely on both the effort you put in and the fuel you provide your body with. It can be the difference between years of working out to only months with the right diet to be able to reach your goals. Eating the wrong foods can also hinder your performance as well as drain your body’s energy faster.

Imagine this scenario… You’re working out every single day at the gym, performing as hard as you can with each exercise. Unfortunately, you have been doing it for awhile now and have yet to witness any results. A friend or fellow gym mate on the other hand has only been working out for a few weeks and can already see their muscles getting larger. What’s the difference between the two of you? As you may have guessed, the food you eat compared to that friend or gym mate.

Build Muscle Diet

You must eat before working out for the day. This is an especially important fact for those who workout early in the morning. People who do tend to skip out on breakfast and eat after their routines. When your body does not have any initial fuel it will use amino acids for energy. This is bad because amino acids are responsible for repairing and building the muscles, which means your taking away from that process and breaking down your muscles. It is good to eat foods with good carbohydrates, like turkey or oatmeal, about an hour before working out. If you are short on time then a simple protein shake fifteen minutes before would be the best option.

Muscle fuel does not only come from before a workout. There are certain foods you should after exercising as well in order to help the muscle building process and replenish lost glycogen. A post-workout meal should be eaten within an hour after you have finished your routine. Foods containing a good amount of protein and carbohydrates include brown rice, grilled chicken, turkey breasts, or a protein and carbohydrate shake.
