muscle-building-foods

Getting in shape and being fit requires eating healthy and getting the right foods.

Proteins are the most important food for any goal, but that doesn’t mean that most of you calories should be coming from them.

Traditionally gaining weight needs a moderate amount of protein with lot of carbs and low fat while losing weight involves moderate protein with high fat and low carbs.

There are a variety of foods that can give you your protein, carbohydrates and fats. Some people get confused about what category a particular food should fall into so I put together a list of foods I think are pretty healthy and categorized them.  There is also a section for foods you should avoid or limit.

(If I wrote an article about a particular food, there is a link to the article so you can get some in-depth information about that food.)

Please note that just because a food is listed in this database does not mean that it will fit the macros of your diet plan. If you are trying to lose weight you might be avoiding carbs so a lot of fruit may not fit in your plan. Conversely, if you are trying to get bigger than you may want to limit the fats and opt for leaner proteins.

You can bookmark this page so you can use it as a reference guide. I will be adding foods to the list and adding links to any articles I write about a food.
