If you’re looking to bulk up there are lots of options in terms of what you can eat and how you eat. You can have a “dirty bulk” where you eat everything or you can be more methodical and go for a calculated approach by measuring your calorie intake. But more importantly, you can greatly improve your odds by targeting certain foods and I’ve complied a list of my top 5.
I am a big egg advocate and that is why I’ve listed it first. Eggs are packed with protein and they also have cholesterol which some people frown upon. But keep in mind, cholesterol is literally the basis of steroid hormones. Eat your eggs, and what yourself grow!
Chicken breasts are probably the number one recommend food for anyone getting into bodybuilding or the fitness world itself. Chicken packs a lot of protein and micronutrients for a very low price which makes it one of the top pics!
Some will frown upon too much red meat but I can’t recommend good old beef enough! Beef is packed with creatin, saturated fats, b-vitamins and so much more. Depending on how you want to consume your beef it can also be located on the cheap!
There was an avocado craze just a couple years ago and with good reason. Avocados are a superfood, loaded with vitamins, minerals and healthy fats. A medium avocado will provide you with 300 calories, 30 grams of fat and a TON of micronutrients. The healthy fats they have combined with the micronutrients will make you grow.
If you look at any of the major bodybuilder’s nutritional plans, they all have fish somewhere. In fact, Dwayne The Rock Johnson posted his and it was literally a serving of fish almost every meal every day. Fish are loaded with protein and are easy to digest, allowing your body to absorb more of the calories it is taking in from fish.
