The right food to build muscle mass is absolutely necessary to allow you
to get the maximum benefit from your gym work. Every bodybuilder needs to
understand that taking in a large number of calories will not get the job
done unless the correct nutrients are present in the food. Here we show
you the right food to build muscle mass.

Lesson 1
The right food to build muscle mass needs to be rich in protein. Among
the bodybuilder's perennial favorites are tuna and chicken, good choices
because they contain ample protein. Red meat and other similar proteins
have lost ground in popularity due to their higher quantities of fat.
Protein is the most essential nutrient of all for a bodybuilder, as
without it the muscles cannot even grow.

Lesson 2
Although fat has a very bad reputation as a contributory factor in
degenerative disease, which is for the most part well deserved, small
quantities of fat are actually necessary and beneficial. Fat is part of
the right food to build muscle, and not enough fat in the diet will
hamper your bodybuilding efforts. Current estimates are that around 20%
of you calorific intake needs to be made up of fats. This is a subject
which requires further reading, as there are different types of fat, some
of which are considerably better than others for the human body. A full
analysis of different fats is outside the scope of this short article, so
do use the search engines to uncover the information you need.

Lesson 3
Include a lot of carbohydrate in your diet! These form a large part of
the right food to build muscles because if your diet is lacking in
carbohydrates, your body will not have enough energy to maintain your
bodybuilding schedule. This is rarely a problem for bodybuilders who
listen to the needs of their own bodies, as hunger will naturally entice
you to eat more filling food, more often.

Lesson-4
Another vital part of the right food to build muscle is water. So many
athletes in all sports put a great emphasis on hydration, and this is not
without good reason. Water helps keep your energy levels up for your
training program, and it is also an important nutrient for muscle growth.
Bodybuilders should cut down their consumption of alcohol, tea and
coffee, as these always have a dehydrating effect.

Taking the time to learn about the right food to build muscle will pay
off handsomely as your training program progresses. This guide will give
you a solid start.
