As a personal trainer and prep coach, I am constantly designing meal plans and learning which foods work best for each client. When it comes to choosing the very best foods for each
client’s individual physique goals, this can be very difficult. This article is to help make it easier for you to find the best of the best. Through research and trial and error, I have found
these “power foods” to have a significant impact on build-
ing that perfect physique.
Each food was chosen because it contains incredible effects on the human body. I make no guarantees, but eating these foods often will likely change your health and change your life.
Here are my choices in no order, along with the reasons why I’ve included them:
Eggs
very affordable, great source of protein, contain several essen- tial vitamins and minerals making them a nutrient-dense food.
Sweet Potatoes
A great source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They contain loads of fiber and potassium. They have more grams of natu- ral sugars than regular potatoes but more overall nutrients and with fewer calories.
Broccoli
Broccoli is known to boost the immune system, build bones, fight birth defects, and to help prevent degenerative eye diseases.
Walnuts
Helps to prevent cardiovascular disease They are one of the few plant-derived sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. They’re also high in plant sterols, which reduce cholesterol. Combine that with their arginine-powered ability to keep the insides of blood vessels smooth and you can understand their effect on heart health. In addi- tion to all that, they’re the nut with the highest anti-oxidant activity.
