Add these 10 muscle building foods to your diet to build lean muscle fast and start losing stomach fat.

I know what you're thinking..."How can I build muscle?...I've been lifting for years now and I just can't build muscle."

Well, that's poppycock. Poppy not puppy. Most of the time when people aren't getting the results with their body that they want, it's because of their diet, NOT what they're doing in the gym.

You've probably realized by now that there are no magic muscle building pills or crazy secrets to get ripped fast... only hard work and a solid, real food diet will help you build muscle quick.

Well, when you're eating to build muscle mass... you need to eat foods that build muscle. I know that sounds redundant... but you'll probably be surprised at some of the foods on this list... and you're probably not eating them.

Not surprisingly, some of these are also some of the top super foods.

10 Best Muscle Building Foods

muscle building foods

#10: Eggs

The protein in eggs is of such high quality that it what all other protein sources are judged by. Eggs have a slew of vitamins and they are also one of the few foods that have a full amino acid profile on their own, which means your muscles can readily use the protein without needing any other enzymes from other sources.

#9: Apple Juice

Apple juice is pretty much the perfect pre and post workout drink. One serving gives you a bunch of quickly used yet slow-burning carbs to give you energy throughout your workout.

#8: Olive Oil

Olive oil is the reason people from the Mediterranean have such low mortality rates, even though they eat tons of pasta and cheese.

Olive oil lowers bad cholesterol and leaves good cholesterol in your system. It also lowers blood sugar levels and keeps your metabolism burning longer throughout the day.

#7: Salmon

Salmon, of course, is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which are great for your heart. It is also an excellent source of protein with a solid amino acid profile.

#6: Lean Beef

Beef is one of the best muscle building foods because its a solid protein source with a lot of vitamins and minerals. Top round and rump roasts have the most protein and the least fat.

#5: Pasta

Pasta is a great source of slow-burning carbs that your muscles need to recover. If your lifting heavy, you should aim to eat at least 45 grams of complex carbs per meal.

#4: Tuna

Simple tuna fish right out of the can is one of most bio-available protein sources and it has virtually no fat.

#3: Cottage Cheese

Cottage cheese is a blend of whey and casein proteins to help your body produce muscle and recover quicker.

#2: Skinless Chicken Breasts

Of course chicken had to be on this list...It is the most versatile of the muscle building foods...and its great tasting, you can cook it a million different ways, and it is high protein and low fat.


I can't say enough about beans. Beans..Fiber. Protein. High quality carbs. Vitamins. Antioxidants. Here's a surprise... baked beans or pork and beans are perfectly okay to eat...anytime. They're healthy and they're very low on the GI index.

If you're really serious about making big changes in how you of the best things you can do is dedicate money to's not a secret that we value something more if it has cost us something.

Any one of the programs below will cost you about the same as a one month supply of your favorite supplement...but could finally be the change you've been needing...

If you're interested... there are a lot of good programs out there, but these are the cream of the crop...

P.S.>>This website is my job....which means I don't have a job... or a boss that tells me what to do. I built it part time putting in about 4 hours a week. Anyone can do here to learn how.
