No matter what your goal is, building muscle, weight loss or weight gain or just general health improvement, there is no better way to have success than to have a good fitness program and eating the right foods.

You body is a machine and if you feed it with potato chips and beer it will run just like a gas car that has a tank of fuel with water in it, it will run but not very good and in the long run do more damage than you can imagine. Just like a car, your body will run on lot's of stuff, but will only run at its peak when fed the nutrients. It is amazing how the body will react when you add the right foods especially before, during and after a workout for building muscle.

Like most things in life, the easy path is not always the best path, like eating those processed foods. Foods that have been genetically altered or processed using heat and then packaged for ease is not good for your body. You body craves good foods and will crave much less if not processed. Most processed food do not satisfy your bodies requirements and you end up eating mor of them just to fool the body into thinking you are full and don't need anymore! Eating the right foods at the right times will help your body get what it needs, so the cravings go away and helps keep the right nutrients in your muscles to help them build quickly. So, what is the right food you ask?
Eggs, One of the best sources of protein on the planet are eggs, yes eggs. Eggs loaded with minerals and vitamins, and are packed with riboflavin, folate, vitamines like B-6, B-12, D, and E along with iron, phosphorus and zinc. Eggs are a natural wonder when it comes to a complete package and especially for the muscle builder.

Beef, its whats for dinner and of course any muscle-building program! Beef loaded with iron, creatine and zinc, all of which are crucial for muscle-building. Eating extra lean cuts of beef will give your muscles the food they need to re-build after a great work-out. Finding natural beef products can be a bit hard, but well worth it. Beef with a natural label will be grain fed with no antibiotics or hormone treatments, so look for those cuts that say "natural", it will be a better cut of beef and better for you.

Salmon, another great protein that is swimming with omega-3 fatty acids, "omega-3" can help slow down the muscle-protein breakdown after a work-out improve the recovery time.This is real important as you need to store new protein faster than the body breaks down the old stuff and salmon is the perfect food for this.

Nuts, and especially almonds. Almonds are a wonder nut, they have the uncanny ability to add alpha-tocopherol vitamin E which is the best type to maximize absorption. This is important to your muscles as vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that can help prevent free-radical damage after a heavy work-out. A couple handfuls a day is all you really need to get all the goodness of almonds.

Water, now, I know what you are thinking, water is not a food! Well, it may not be a direct food, but no food will work for you without water. Muscle is about 80 percent water. As little as 1 percent change in body water can impair exercise performance and adversely affect recovery. Think of it this way, for every pound you shed during a work-out, drink 24 ounces.

Please don't tell me you're implying you can't build muscle without beef, salmon and nuts?

Apparently, from the grade-school level of (stolen) information provided, to be bbdotcom's new Captain Obvious.

OP is posting another article by the same "expert."

I have to wonder whether OP is really that author, hoping to direct traffic to his articles. Wonder what happens if a bunch of us click on the red frowns on those articles...maybe ezine will stop paying that author for articles.

It's too lame an attempt to be considered trolling; no self-respecting miscer would even bother with such weak game.

Also strong analogy skills. Since when can a internal combustion engine run on water?

I didn't read any of this thread, except for the title. Which was enough.

Just wanted to stop in and say there is not even one food without which you cannot build muscle.
