Grocery shopping list for bodybuilders
If you are a bodybuilder who is trying to gain muscle then you will know very well about the necessity to eat correctly and that starts and ends with buying correctly at the grocery store. If you buy crap you will eat crap so the first step is making up a good shopping list that will stock your kitchen with all the required nutrition you need to gain muscle.
The list is long so we need to separate it into different sections. Like knowing the difference when you are buying protein, complex carbs, fibrous carbs, fruits and veggies, healthy fats, dairy and eggs, and finally beverages and condiments. If you cannot separate these food groups when you make a purchase at the grocery store then you need to first make up a shopping list from these different foods.
If we list the proteins that you should buy then you also need to know how these proteins will be cooked as the preparation is everything when it comes to adding muscle and not fat. Here is a basic list of the different kinds of proteins that you can buy at any local grocer.
Chicken Breast with no skin and no bones
The list above has been deliberately shortened to show just a few of the many protein alternatives that are available if you can afford to purchase them. The list above is only the protein so we need to concentrate on purchasing complex carbohydrates which is listed below.
Tuna in water or brine
Fish (halibut, salmon and any other line fish)
Extra Lean minced or ground beef
Egg Whites and/or Eggs
Top Round Steaks or Roast (could be London Broil, Stew Meat or Stir Fry)
Top Sirloin (Sirloin a Top Butt sirloin)
Beef Tenderloin (any other Filet like Filet Mignon)
Top Loin ( like a NY Strip Steak)
Eye of Round (could be cube meat or stew meat or even bottom round meat that is 96% lean and ground Round)
Ground turkey or normal turkey breast slices or other turkey cutlets
Oatmeal (Old fashioned whole oats)
The proteins and the complex carbs are important but so is the fibrous carbs and the fruit that you purchase so we will add a few ideas here so that you know what to look at in the store.
Sweet Potatoes (Yams)
Beans (can be either sugar, kidney, pinto, black)
Whole Oat Bran Cereal
Farina (Known as cream of wheat)
Potatoes (red or brown)
Green leafy lettuce (Of any type ranging from red or green leaf to Romaine)
Other fruits and vegetables will also include cucumber, any green or red peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes, Zucchini and other fruits ranging from bananas and apples to strawberries and grapefruit. The last and probably the most important section on your shopping list is your healthy fats that you purchase.
Natural Peanut Butter
Olive Oil or any other Safflower or Canola Oil
Nuts (peanuts or almonds)
