Four Healthy Proteins you should Eat

By: A.H Eating clean/ healthy is not an easy task, especially when you’re dieting, working out, or body building. Many people do cardio and train hard but they face problem of being fat or not having pure muscles so we need to focus on our training routine and our eating habits. Here are foods that will help promote muscle growth and help you lose weight: 1. Fat Free Cottage Cheese Fat-free cottage cheese contains valuable protein-based nutrition if your goal is muscle enhancement. Two of the most important proteins in bodybuilding are whey based protein and casein-based protein. Whey protein is the liquid by-product of cheese production; casein is located in the curds (that separates from the whey in the process). Cottage cheese is, simply, casein and whey. A half cup serving of fat free cottage cheese provides 80 calories and 16 grams of highly beneficial protein. 2. Canned Tuna You can’t beat canned tuna for quick and easy when it comes to high-protein foods. However, its benefits to bodybuilders go beyond convenience. Besides containing a firm protein boost, tuna contains Omega-3 fatty acids, which helps prevent muscle loss, as well as boosts immunity and enhances your metabolism. Three ounces of white, water packed albacore tuna provides 1 calorie with 30 grams of protein, and 0 grams of fat. 3. Turkey Breast The white meat from a turkey provides an intense protein pack. A single eight ounce serving provides 60 grams of protein, with very little fat accompanying it. The same is not true for dark meat, which, while still high in protein, is a much fattier type of meat. Not to mention turkey breasts might be a slightly more appetizing option than many high protein low fat menu items. 4. Eggs Some experts believe eggs to be one of the most perfect bodybuilding foods available. Each egg contains all eight amino acids essential for the building and maintenance of muscles. Besides that, an egg also contains many vitamins, acids, and other nutrients extremely important to the healing and re-growth of muscle tissue. While some bodybuilders might worry about the fat content of eggs, there is evidence that such worry is unfounded. Although eggs do contain about five grams of fat each, only 1.5 of these grams are of saturated “bad fat.” Eggs do also contain cholesterol, but there has been no solid proof that their particular type of cholesterol contributes to human high cholesterol. However, egg whites contain no fat or cholesterol, only protein. A serving of six egg whites and two yolks will yield 27 grams of protein, for 153 calories. If you want to get in shape and build muscles, eat “clean” proteins and low fat/ sugar foods.
