The Best Foods To Eat

The Best Foods To Eat

If you're serious about getting in the best shape of your life, you'll want to read the series of emails I'll be sending out over the next few weeks.

In each, I'll be revealing my "best of the best" tips and techniques to help you gain muscle and lose fat in less time.

I'll be covering the best foods to eat to build muscle and shed fat, the best exercises to do, the best supplements to take, the best workouts to do, and more.

Simply put... I'll be giving you the best way to get results. Over the course of these emails, you'll learn, step by step, exactly what you need to do, with your weight training and nutrition, in order to get the body you want... a lot faster.

In this email, I'll talk about the best foods to eat to gain muscle and melt off stubborn fat.
Primarily, you want to make these foods the basis of your diet from now on:Fruits, vegetables, nuts, eggs, fish, meat, dairy.

Here are some of the foods you want to include in your daily diet:

protein sources

fish (tuna, salmon, haddock, halibut, cod, perch, orange roughy), turkey, chicken, lean red meats (top round, flank steak, lean ground beef), dairy products (low-fat/non-fat cottage cheese, skim milk, low-fat/non-fat yogurt), eggs, soybeans, nuts, legumes, lean ham, lean pork, liver, shellfish, scallops, lamb, tofu, protein supplements (whey, egg, milk, soy protein supplements)

carbohydrate sources

brown rice, whole grain breads & cereals, oatmeal, potatoes, yams, vegetables (carrots, broccoli, green beans, corn,), legumes (chick peas, lima, kidney, and soybeans), cream-of-wheat

fat sources

olive oil, peanuts, coconut oil, peanut butter, almonds, safflower oil, sunflower oil, walnuts, flax seed oil, borage oil, avocadoes, fish oils (salmon), CLA (conjugated linoleic acid)

So what's missing?

A lot of refined, processed foods!

Foods that are primarily sugar or refined grains cause your blood sugar to fluctuate too much during the day, wreaking havoc on your insulin levels.

This in itself will cripple fat release, which we will see more in depth shortly.

So have healthy foods on hand ALL THE TIME! You MUST set up your immediate environment to help you, not hinder you. Because when you get really hungry, you’re going to throw all reasoning out the window.

So setting up your environment is going to mean heading to the grocery store to get good, healthy foods that are on this list.
