March 08, 2020 2 translation missing: en.blogs.article.read_time

It doesn’t matter how many crunches you complete, if your diet is not on point you will struggle to see your abs.

The following 5 foods will help you build lean muscle and sculpt chiselled abs.

Almonds

These delicious nuts pack a wealth of nutrients into every mouthful. Protein, fibre and healthy fats as well as vitamin E – a potent antioxidant – tick all the right boxes, giving your body slow-release energy that will sustain you for longer. Almonds are also rich in magnesium, which helps your body regulate blood sugar and prevents cravings which is a bonus.

Eggs

Eggs are a fantastic protein source. They’re cheap, high in amino acids, which provides the basis your body needs to grow muscle fibres. Boiled, poached or scrambled, eggs make a great hunger-sating snack. Alternatively, add them to a stir-fry or salad to form a delicious, nutritious meal.

Salmon

Salmon has many benefits, in particular a high protein content and the essential omega-3 fatty acids. Healthy fats found in salmon will also help burn fat.

Greens

Green veggies are low in calories, allowing you to pile your plate high without piling on the pounds. Spinach; kale; broccoli are packed with calcium and essential vitamins and antioxidants. Leafy greens are high in fibre and won’t leave you bloated.

Greek yogurt

Greek yogurt is another protein-rich food, but its benefits don’t just end there. Smooth and satisfying, Greek yogurt is blessed with probiotic bacteria to keep your digestive system healthy and prevent bloating. Start the day with a bowl of yogurt and berries for a high protein breakfast that’ll fuel your body with a triple whammy of energy, antioxidants and fibre.
