Since I often get questions in regard to dieting, food and nutrition I am currently developing this aspect of Penandbarbell.
During May I will make it a habit to discuss dieting and nutrition in relation to working out.
I'll start off with a basic list of 10 foods that I would recommend to anyone in pursuit of a chiselled and strong physique. If you make a habit out of eating these 10 foods you won't need supplements, protein powder or creatine in order for you to build qualitative muscle mass and ensure cardiovascular health:
Because of the protein. And no, there is no need to fear cholesterol.
Because of the healthy fat that can be found in this and other fish.
A gym goers best friend - and don't let any trendy supplements-using people tell you otherwise.
Held as the world´s most healthy vegetable - and that is saying something considering that most regular vegetables are considered rather healthy.
Vitamins en masse - and on top of that iron, magnesium, zinc and you name it.
6. Brazil nuts
Fibers, proteins, healthy fats and selenium. The latter strengthens your immune system and fights inflammations.
7. Beet juice
The choice of Olympians athletes. Good for your cardio vascular health.
8. Organic minced meat
Iron, zinc and B-vitamins.
A great source for good carbs. In other words: a great source for strength and energy.
