Top 25 healthy muscle building foods

    From a whey protein perspective, I am pretty much standardized on "Muscle Milk." The reason for which is that it has been fortified with additional aminos, electrolytes, vitamins, fat, and minerals your body requires. I use one scoop in the morning with fruit as a meal myself. One scoop offers about 1/3 of the recomended vitamins and minerals you need, 16 grams of protein, and 150 calories (1/3 of which are from the fat). Add some additional fruit, wheat, oats, etc. for some fiber, and caloric energy, and you have a pretty complete meal… I've looked at many and used many different whey protein supplements, and they all have their place, but Muscle milk seems to offer the best nutritional value…

    All these are very important , but i would generally say that the most important is protein amino acids as this is the building blocks of solid muscle. water is as inportant but DOES NOT build muscle weather it is 75 % or not.
