On February 27, 2013, the fitness supplement retailer Muscular Development Store comments on an article published by the Atlanta Black Star outlining foods that can help athletes build muscle.
Atlanta Black Star describes 10 essential foods to adopt into your diet to promote protein synthesis instead of adding pounds of fat. Atlanta Black Star recommended that athletes should eat protein-rich food while implementing a resistance-training program.
According to Atlanta Black Star, athletes wanting to build muscle should eat foods with a lot of protein because amino acids repair tissue and promote muscle growth. Some of these foods include organic bison meat, coldwater fish and Kefir, a popular European drink containing probiotics.
Atlanta Black Star reported a study which revealed people who eat a variety of meat are more successful at building muscle due to available variations of amino acids, while vegetarians only eating plant-based proteins were slower to gain muscle mass.
Brian Turner, a spokesperson for the Muscular Development Store, said people who eat meat for protein could also benefit from introducing whey into their diet. Whey protein, according to Turner, is a great supplement to increase endurance, prevent fatigue and increase energy level. “If people don’t want to eat steak or chicken all the time to build muscle, they can replace the meat with whey,” he said. “Whey protein contains high amounts of amino acids, such as phenylalanine, arginine, glutamine, proline and tryptophan. All of these help promote cell regeneration, tissue repair, improvements in immune systems and healing.”
Turner said if you want to see results and build muscle, athletes should consume whey protein before or after a workout to get the nutrients needed to perform, but also recover.
