I'm always looking for some brand new secret. Why? These foods work, they always have worked. Another reminder I need to stick with the basics and leave out the trash f[d. Oatmeal and egg whites, why do anything else?
I can name 50 top bodybuilder foods.. In addition to the top 6, I will like to add some that are rich in micro nutrients and some based on the indigenous foods where I hail from. Kidney beans and lentils, water buffalo, red snapper, coconut milk/oil, graviola fruit, Irish sea moss, oysters , mangosteen.. I also enjoy close cup and shittake mushrooms .
Interesting to see this thread has been opened for soo long!
A lot of the suggestions are great and its impossible to qualify the importance of specific foods..
Hence I focus on keeping variety in the diet with our 'best' foods to make sure nutrient, antioxidant, phytonutrients, ect are in the diet to prevent deficiencies and make sure we are getting the best antioxidants and nutrients possible.
Over the years I've been more for focusing on organic, natural products and Its difficult as these products can be significantly more expensive.
So aside from that, high quality protein sources, clean fatty fish good, lean meats like chicken, ostrich, buffalo. Obviously a lot of eggs (which need to switch to free range and natural, but so damn expensive!) But almost all my meals include some type of veggie.
Most of the time fibrous veggies, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, spinach, and beans like lima, ect. Quinoa nice grain.
Lists can go on and on but I've come to a pretty simple realization is that if you are eating these particular 'bodybuilding' type of foods, then the biggest is the quality in which you are getting these foods. Expensive yes but worth every penny
