A GREAT MUSCLE-BUILDING BREAKFAST TO START EVERY DAY

A Great Muscle-Building Breakfast to Start Every Day

Since the beginning of time, we’ve all heard that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. That statement becomes even more veritable if you’re taking part of in a daily fitness program. Your first meal will set the tone for how your body performs for the rest of the day, so it’s important that you feed it with the proper nutrients. If your goals are to build muscle, we’ve put together the perfect muscle-building breakfast to help get your day started.

THE RECIPE TO A PERFECT MUSCLE-BUILDING BREAKFAST

1. 300G EGG WHITES

Egg whites are an excellent source of protein and quite easy to prepare. We suggest taking the yolk out of the equation because this is chiefly the protein source we want you to use. The fat source will come later.

Three hundred grams of egg whites contains 32g of awesome muscle-building protein. It’s very low in carbs and fats (2g and 0.5g respectively) and digests quickly for easy absorption. You can add spices and veggies like onion, zucchini, tomatoes to add flavouring.

2. 80G OF OATMEAL

Oatmeal will provide you with an awesome complex carbohydrate source to keep you fueled over the next few hours and help with digestion. Eighty grams of oatmeal provides 60g of complex carbohydrates and 8.5g of fibre.

3. 30G OF CHIA SEEDS

One of the best things about chia seeds is that they are a versatile food that can fit into just about any meal. In this case, we recommend you mix them with the oatmeal.

Chia seeds are a great source of antioxidants, vitamins and healthy fats. They also contain small amounts of protein and carbohydrates as well. A 30g serving of chia seeds contains 9.5g of healthy fats, 4g of protein and 13g of carbs.

Put all these items together for an awesome muscle-building breakfast and don’t forget to hydrate yourself throughout the day with plenty of water.

When you put together the sum total of my 30 years of bodybuilding training, the contests, the vast array of diets I have experimented (tortured) myself with as well as the experiences I have been through with various training partners in the gyms I have trained in all over the world, it’s been a great ride and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to be able to do lots of personal training for private clients alongside my day job. For a few years during my 30’s, I moved to Asia and worked as the Fitness Manager and head personal trainer at one of Thailand’s leading gyms in Bangkok. Learn More
