Sources of protein for muscle building


It is not easy to watch your diet and try and keep it clean, what makes it even harder is that you need to eat alot of protein for muscle growth. It is known in bodybuilding that animal protein such as beef, fish,eggs and chicken are the best source of complete proteins but not everyone is able to eat as much of these foods as they would like/need. This may be because it becomes a chore to eat so much food in a day and everyday, or because the diets some people on or their religion does not allow them to eat beef or all meat in general.


I am sure there are many vegetarians out there, who would also like to build muscle and find other sources of protein to help them build their dream physiques. So today I will share some other sources of protein one can eat if they find eating only meat sources is a chore, and for those who don’t eat meat.

These sources are incomplete proteins but if you combine them they to can be really effective in helping you build and repair muscle.

Brown rice, soya beans, peas, beans, oats, nuts (walnuts, peanuts etc), coconuts, wholewheat foods, peanut butter and a lot more other non-meat foods.


If you do not eat meat completely and even if you do eat meat and want an easy way to get the required protein intake per day then you should consider using supplements such as whey protein and BCAA’s ( branched chain amino acids). Whey protein provides high quality protein, with all the complete amino acids you need to build a great physique. BCAA’s provide the essential amino acids for muscle building and repair. There are other supplements that provide protein as well so you have a lot of options when it comes to how you choose to get your protein.
