Muscle-Building Protein

August 11, 2010

Must See Nutrition Videos

Aiming to build muscle? Plate some protein throughout the day—not just at dinner. Men’s Health throws down five truths about protein, including when best to eat it: with three meals and a couple snacks each day. This way, you’ll fuel muscle growth for a longer period of time as opposed to just a few hours if you’re consuming protein mainly at dinner.

Needs some meal ideas? Sample these options:

Breakfast
Former Seattle Seahawks nutrition consultant Susan Kleiner suggests an easy morning meal: Nabisco Shredded Wheat, almonds, low-fat milk and a hard-boiled egg.

Lunch
New York Jets nutritionist Wendy Meyer Sterling recommends a healthy, muscle-building turkey sandwich: Turkey, Munster cheese, spinach, tomato, avocado and Dijon mustard on a whole-grain bagel.

Dinner
New York Giants team nutritionist Heidi Skolnik vouches for chicken stir-fry: boneless, skinless chicken breasts, assorted vegetables, brown rice and soy sauce.

Snacks
Chicago Blackhawks team nutritionist Julie Burns recommends simple snacks: 2 hard-boiled eggs, 2 ounces of jerky, 5 pieces of sushi or 1/4C of nuts.
