Foods for the Muscle

Aside from the fact that protein is one of the most essential nutrients that the body needs for development and maintenance, protein is also needed for the muscle to reach its maximum growth. With this in mind, It is recommended for people who want to build their muscles to undergo a protein diet.

Our muscle is like the machine of the human body which provides force so you can work. So to give you a guide for the food you should eat to maintain your muscles and reach their full potential, check out the list of high in protein foods I made below.

Presently, the recommended daily intake (RDI) of protein for women between ages of 19-70 is 46 grams and 56 grams for men in the same age bracket. For your safety, be sure to ask the advice of experts before you undergo a protein diet. The right amount of protein your body needs must be taken into consideration.
