Many people are unsure about carbohydrates. There are many types of diet that promote muscle building including; high protein, low carbs, and even no fat diets. Good nutritionists will tell you that we need adequate carbohydrate intake to promote optimal performance and a healthy lifestyle. A balanced diet, with appropriate nutrition supplements, and regular, gentle exercise will help you and the ones you love to build muscles and age gracefully.
Carbohydrates serve several key functions in your body. They provide you with energy for daily tasks and are the primary fuel source for your brain’s energy demands. Fibre is a special type of carbohydrate that helps promote good digestion and can lower your risk of heart disease and diabetes. Some nutritionists recommend a ratio of 50 percent carbohydrates, 20 percent protein, and 30 percent fat as a good balance for a healthy lifestyle. We are all unique individuals with different personal health goals. So finding the right combination of carbs, protein and fat for you and the ones you love may take some time, trial and error. The optimal balance will also change throughout your lifecycle.
Carbs for muscle building
Your quest for building a beautiful body may seem endless. You can try to eat less, or exercise more, or both. Then you can vary your diet, and your nutrition supplements, to try to build muscles. For years we’ve been hearing that cutting carbs should be a cornerstone of most diets, especially whole grain carbs. The truth is, you could enjoy your carbs and build muscle at the same time. Some of the best carbs for muscle building may not be on your usual shopping list, so why not try them? Here are some carbs that will actually help you build muscles if you add them in to your current diet;
- Quinoa – full of fibre
- Chickpeas – snack with spices
- Whole grain rye bread – get if fresh from your local baker
- Sweet potatoes – good for blood sugar
- Barley – reduces hunger
And don’t forget to treat yourself to some popcorn. Post-workout snacks should be tasty rewards that include protein and carbohydrates; protein powder mixed with water alone is not enough.
