Desired Weight Gain.......... Part One
Many athletes are trying to gain weight in order to help themselves improve at their particular sport..... and this increase in bodyweight is desired to be in the form of increased muscle tissue. For these athletes, it's all about "pumping iron" and hitting the training table. I've discovered that a lot of athletes just don't know what foods are going to help them meet their goals. And that, for one thing, they should consume a high protein and complex carbohydrate snack within 20 minutes of their strength training session. Well, here are some ideas of some good healthy foods for athletes to consume throughout the day..........
Nuts: peanuts, almonds, cashews, Brazil nuts, pistachios
Dried fruit: raisins,apple rings, apricots, dates
Sandwiches on whole grain breads with cheese, chicken, ham, tuna, peanut butter, or banana
