Any high protein food is good for building muscle but the high protein foods listed on this page have extra stuff in them that will help you build muscle faster so…
1. Organic Beef
Organic Beef contains lots of CLA (or conjugated linoleic acid) which is basically a fat that helps you burn fat but many studies show how CLA helps you gain muscle mass - for example…
According to one study a group of men who took only 5g of CLA per day gained more muscle over 7 weeks than men who did not take CLA.
Eggs have lots of GOOD cholesterol in them that helps you maintain your current testosterone levels and according to one study…
People who ate 3 whole eggs per day while on a muscle building workout plan gained twice as much muscle as the people who only ate 1 egg everyday.
Almost all fish like salmon, tuna, and herring are high in Omega-3 fats and people who have higher levels of Omega-3s in their diets reported greater levels of muscle strength than those who didn't include that much Omega-3s plus…
Omega-3s help your muscles recovery faster after workouts and Omega-3 fats increases muscle growth basically by helping your body use most of the protein you eat for muscle building.
4. Wheat Germ
Wheat germ is high in octacosanol and if you eat wheat germ about 30-to-60 minutes before your muscle building workout… The octacosanol in wheat germ will help increase your muscle strength and endurance during your workout plus…
This high-carb food source also has lots of protein in it.
5. Brown Rice
Brown rice is high in GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) and GABA will increase your growth hormone levels by up to 400%
Spinach is high in a compound called beta-ecdysterone that increases your body's ability to use more protein for muscle growth by 20%.

Hello Adrian, my name is Ramona and I am trying to build alot of muscle mass. I use to train while playing ball in high school and now that I have reached 30, I want my arms to be more defined as they were back then. I also want to start competing in the womens bodybuilding as well. I purchased some creatine supplement pills to help, but I don't know where to start. I am starting my workout tomorrow. I need some pointers.

I am 61 years old. In good health. I do not take any meds. I do not smoke. I drink wine and vodka once Ina while. I am 5'5" and weigh 145. I am thick around my waist. I used to workout but haven't in about a year. Will your plans work for me? Can I ever hope to be lean and strong and flexible again? Or is my age against me now?

Hi Adrian, I need your help. I am only 5 feet tall, and weigh 165 give or take. I have a big butt, big breast, and I have curves. The only thing about this is that all areas need to be toned. I also need my arms toned, and my inner thighs. I also have kids therefore leaving a few stretch marks, and excess belly fat with love handles. In other words, I guess I need a new me=). Adrian, is there any hope for me and all of these problem areas? Thanks in advance for any helps you provide, it is greatly appreciated.

How you doing Adrian, my name's andy I'm 21, 6'1 and 183 pounds I'm trying to gain weight but nothing I do is working for me. My ideal weight would be 200 pounds any way to do this without the gym, i go to a gym facility about 2-3 times a week but i feel all i do is burn calories n just losing weight instead of gaining although I'm also becoming more defined any help would be appreciated thanks!!!

Hi there Andy. I struggle to put weight on I have been going to the gym for just over a year and have gone from 58kg to 64kg. I have hardly any fat and so you can see how much muscle I gained. My arms went from 12" to 14" chest from 32" to 36" all you need to do to gain weight is eat more calories. Work out how Many cals you burn during the day and eat that much plus add an extra 500 cals for example I burn 3000 cals in a day so I'm aiming for 3600 cals. Also keep going at the gym cause with all the cals your eating will also be lots of protein too so you will gain alot of mass. All you need to do is be dedicated and work hard, one last thing you prob have a fast metabolism which is the same as
Me. It's frustrating if you want to gain weight but stick at it and you will get there.
