For along with doing weight training exercise those who are looking to pack on some muscle, after the correct eating system is crucial.

Here are the best tips on how to build muscle quickly if you’re planning to gain weight and muscle naturally.

Here are the best foods to add in a muscle development program:

  • Whole eggs – A complete egg contains vital nutrients, protein and fats to help build muscle.
  • Clean Protein –  Train for 5-8 ounces per meal of high-quality lean protein.
  • Broccoli – And other cruciferous vegetables will assist with fat loss and also have essential nutrients for building muscle.
  • Wild-caught fish – Omega-3s help reduce inflammation and are essential for muscle mass building.
  • Almond butter – Almonds nutrition provide L-arginine to increase vitamin and NO2 E that will help reduce damage from free radicals after having a heavy workout.
  • Sweet Potatoes – Yams and sweet potatoes are a superb source of carbohydrates which are gluten-free and alkaline and can help pack on some healthy pounds.
  • Bananas – This sweet and smooth fruit is saturated in nutrients that support muscle health and is perfect for adding into smoothies for extra calories.

Foods To Avoid

  • White Sugar – Will raise free radical damage from challenging workouts, leading to exhaustion.
  • Alcohol – Empty calories and will remove nutrients that are critical from your own body.
  • White and Wheat products – Stay away from bleached white products like wheat products, white pasta and white bread. They include anti-nutrients that can slow muscle growth.
  • Hydrogenated oils – Found in vegetable oil, soybean oil, corn oil, and canola oil cause inflammation which slows recovery of muscles.

Top 5 Natural Muscle Mass Building Supplements

Here are the best five nutritional supplements to assist you to naturally build muscle:

1. Whey Protein (1–2 scoops daily)

Helps increase protein intake and is rapidly absorbed by the body so it’s a perfect protein right before or after a workout.  Avoid whey protein powders that have artificial sweeteners. Look for undenatured whey protein preferably from grass-fed cows with natural sweeteners such as stevia.

2. BCAA’s (follow directions)
These amino acids are crucial for muscle formation and can help build muscles.

3. L-Arginine (1000 mg 2x daily)
Helps with blood vessel dilation and improves the flow of blood.

4. L-Glutamine (5–10 grams daily)
This amino acid helps with muscle recovery and preventing catabolism.

5. Creatine Monohydrate (1–3 grams daily)
Helps increase muscle strength increases so you can train harder. Be constantly aware that consuming more than 1–3 grams daily may be hard on kidneys.

Exercise Suggestion

Doing hefty weight training of 6–12 reps, five days weekly for 45–75 minutes is perfect if you are attempting to gain muscle. Also, limitation when you do cardio and traditional cardio, opt for burst training instead.

Nutrition Tip

Try this recipe for the Superhuman shake — because in case you need to pack on muscle, ensure that you use up plenty of calories in liquid form. Consuming a milkshake a few times a day with uncooked eggs, almond butter, coconut milk, raw milk and protein powder will help you receive the extra calories you want.
