The main component for muscle building is protein. We all know by now how and why it’s helpful for losing weight and putting on muscle. Seeds and nuts are one of the less talked about protein sources. Apart from lentils, eggs and chicken, these make for a great alternative especially if gaining muscle is your goal. They are extremely high in protein and hardly have only the healthiest fats and carbs. They are rich in fiber too which is also extremely important for muscle building. Also, According to FDA “Eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease". Rather to build muscle or to manage weight, superfoods like nuts and seeds are proven to assist you in achieving your goals, a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition also found that women who reported rarely eating nuts had a greater incidence of weight gain over an 8-year period than those who consumed nuts two times a week or more.
