The correlation between tuna and bodybuilders

Find out why tuna is important for muscle building

RATE:  
 

If you are bodybuilding you know that eating a healthy, balanced diet every day is just as important as your exercise regimen. Fish, such as tuna, is a good option because it is naturally low in fat and high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Tuna is also packed with protein as well as containing virtually no carbohydrates.

For those of you who are new to bodybuilding or do not know much about nutrition might not realise how much protein is in tuna fish and how much it can benefit you.

Cans of tuna vary in their nutritional value, but you can find cans that contain up to about 30 grams protein, only 1g carbs, and 0 fats per 100g. Look for tuna in brine or spring water, but stay away from tuna in oil because that is full of fat. They are also low in calories and are great for pre-contest diets.

This inexpensive protein source is a convenient way to increase the protein in meals and snacks

Tuna is convenient and can be eaten anytime anywhere to boost protein content and to help with muscle building. You can have it as a post workout meal and whack it in some wholemeal bread to make a sandwich which packs the carbs and protein your body requires post-workout. You can virtually have Tuna at anytime of the day as they hardly contain fat nor carbs and are low in calories.

There are so many other health benefits of tuna which include;

  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Keep muscle's strong
  • Food for the heart
  • Improves your immune system
  • Helps promote detoxification
  • Great for eye health
