Meat, eggs, poultry and fish are rich in proteins. Fat. Best choice is balanced omega 3,6 and 9 fat. It can be found in fish and olive oil as well as in saturated fat. Vegetables. All vegetables are good for you particularly green vegetables rich in fibers. Fruits. All fruits should be included in you diet and can be taken with every meal. Water. 1 liter of water is necessary for every spent 1000 calories. Cereals, bread, pasta etc and whole grain food.Vegetarians and vegans can build muscle with their regime of nutrition though results may not be as good as with those who consume meat. Red meat increases level of testosterone in body which is necessary for building muscle.
Losing fatIf you practice strength training apart from building muscle you will get rid of body fat. Cardio exercises are very helpful because it burns fat. Cardio should be done half an hour after strength training and optimally three times a week. Also, one has to reduce calories. First food consumption need to be monitored using Fitday.
