Working hard in the gym every day is a great way to get healthy and to start getting a bigger butt, but you’ll never get the results you want if you don’t eat right. Food is fuel. The right foods can fuel your workouts and help you get more from your workouts. The wrong foods will slow you down and prevent you from making progress.
Remember, the butt is made up of muscles and fat. The food you eat fuels your muscles and helps with fat burning and fat distribution. That’s why it’s so important that you pay attention to what you’re eating before and after you workout.
Foods to Get More from Your Workouts
Not only is salmon an incredibly nutritious food, but it’s also quite tasty. Even people who don’t like fish tend to enjoy salmon. And the good news for your butt is that salmon is high in protein and packed with good fats. Talk about a win-win! Salmon is also an excellent source for many vitamins.
There’s a reasons grilled chicken is a staple in the diet of most fitness buffs – it’s lean and it’s a great source of protein (a 4 oz. serving of grilled chicken breast gives you about 25 grams of protein). It’s also incredibly diverse. You can pair grilled chicken with just about anything, from sweet potatoes to a salad.
Pork tenderloin is another lean meat that’s low in calories but high in protein, making it a perfect choice for your workout. Women’s Health notes that eating more protein can reduce fat around your midsection. That means you’ll have better curves and nicer hips and butt.
Celery & peanut butter—
This is the perfect workout snack. Celery is a good source of fiber and nutrients and it’s very low in calories. Peanut butter has a good amount of protein and healthy fats. This snack fills you up and gives your body what it needs to help you get a bigger booty.
You can’t go wrong with a classic whey protein shake. Consuming whey before your workout can help you burn fat and gain muscle. To get the most from your protein shake, add berries that are rich in antioxidants.
