Eating is half the battle. I learned this the hard way after continually working out and eating the wrong things. I was gaining the mass needed, but never really develop the definition I was looking for now. That I'm eating the right kinds of foods and doing the right kinds of work out, I'm definitely getting a lot better as far as building a healthier eating habit and musculature.
Here's a breakdown of the types of food to eat everyday sustain the right vitamins, proteins, and carbs to build up your healthy body. Be sure to check the video below the info!
"In this episode, Sanela and Mike are going to show you how to cook delicious healthy meals that will help you get the sexiest body on the beach this summer.
First off we are going to start with Veggies! I know there are going to be some of you who aren't the biggest fans of veggies, but they are really tasty if you cook them like I show you, and Awesome for Fat Loss.
Broccoli and Asparagus are my favorite veggies because they are loaded with vitamins, BCAA amino acids, and go great with the staple protein sources like chicken, beef, and tilapia.
Next, I will talk to you guys about the importance of fresh fruits. It is a very healthy source of carbohydrates and vitamins, and serves as a great late night snack when you may not be able to stomach a full meal.
Load up your house with fruits like bananas, apples, grapefruits, almonds and oranges to satisfy your late night munchies in a healthy way.
Finally, I will cover the best sources of protein and how to prepare them. Here's a summary...
Beef- I prefer and 80/20 ground beef, its a little extra fat, but a lot cheaper than the leaner alternatives. When I cook the beef, I will use a George Foreman Grill which will cook of most of the excess fat, and if the beef is still looking a bit greasy I will squeeze the rest out with my own hands.
Chicken breast- There are several healthy ways to prepare chicken... First you can fry it... hahaha, JUST KIDDING! The healthiest way to prepare the chicken breast is to de-skin and bake, however you can also use a little oil and cook it right in a skillet as well.
Tilapia- Tilapia is really a great protein source. Its lean, healthy and great for your heart. Also its very easy to cook and not expensive. Depending on where you shop you can usually purchase them individually packaged and flash frozen. At that point all that is needed is to run the fillet under warm water for a few minutes... season to your liking, bake for about 15 minutes an enjoy.
There are tons of options you can put together to satisfy your pallet and still feed your body what it needs to build lean muscle and burn more calories daily... Remember its all about the afterburn! the more lean muscle you have the more calories you will burn... Its scientific FACT!"
