Optimal nutritional style for gaining muscle
You dont need to trust me, you can do your own research on this. The highest quality protein sources for building muscle are eggs and milk. The protein from dairy and eggs are higher than beef, chicken, fish, or pork. If you want to maximize muscle gain, its my opinion that you need to get a large percentage of your protein from these two sources. Now there is a name for this kind of nutrition, its “VEGETARIAN”. Many people incorrectly think that vegetarians are at a disadvantage for building muscle. The only thing that vegetarians do not eat is meat, and meat is an inferior protein source anyway. Much of the reason that people thing vegetarians are at a disadvantage is that they confuse vegetarian (no meat) with vegan (no animal products at all).
OK, so you have done your research and agree with me that eggs and dairy are the way to go, how do you put together a nutritional plan that is optimal for building muscle while you are losing fat, great question – glad you asked. I am going to show you how to make a vegetarian meal plan for the week in under 2 minutes that is totally free.
