It is well-known that eating different and healthy foods is the key to every successful diet. Consuming a lot of vegetables and fruits leads to an inevitable weight loss, but this is not a secret. However, when someone wants to build muscles as well, it is essential to eat carbs and fats, so he could convert the energy into muscles.
So, in the process of slimming down and getting muscles at the same time, all the nutrients should be concerned. Nevertheless, there are some inevitable foods for a successful regime, such as the whole egg (with yolk), for example, because it is a valuable source of the proteins, which are essential for any exercise.
Also, the meat is rich in proteins. But not every kind of meat is good for diets. Usually, salmon meat is recommended because it has a lot of omega-3 fatty acids, but only when captured in wilderness. The red meat and turkey are also good for diets, because it contains proteins, vitamin B12, iron, zinc, and even omega-3. Of course, the turkey meat is recommended, because it’s the driest meat there is.
As far as the other, non-meat food is concerned; it is already well-known that besides of the fruits and vegetables, seeds and all kinds of nuts are rich in fibers. For example, the quinoa is for the reason called “king of grains”, because it contains a lot of proteins and fibers. Also eating the oats is very useful, especially after a physical activity.
The most important source of vitamins and minerals are the fruits and vegetables. For example, spinach, broccoli and tomatoes have the same characteristic of containing the substances which prevent cancer. Also, it is important to emphasize that characteristic of the vegetables of being low in calories. And there are also carrots (rich in carotene and the vitamin A), which can be eaten when not cooked.
The fruits are usually concerned as the source of the vitamins and minerals, but also as the antioxidants. So, in that matter, it is good to eat all the kinds of berries and apples, but, of course when not treated with pesticides.
And, finally, not to forget the importance of water, in diets. The dieticians recommend that one should drink 2 glasses (4 dl) of water with or before every meal. Of course, making the green tea is also good idea, because it is a strong antioxidant and natural diuretic.
