One of my pursuits is proper eating lately. Just as I`m starting to run and swim again, I`ll be spending time lifting weights and generally building strength. I am a thin, flexible guy, and am really light on my feet. Both characters I will be keeping. However I want to gain weight. In an interview with B.J. Penn in blackbelt magazine he said "Nutrition is important; you`ve got to eat the right foods. You`ve got to have a nutritionist or a friend who knows nutrition because if you`re just working out and not eating right, your wasting your time." I train a guy who used to be into body building, and when it comes to nutrition he knows his stuff. But I`m looking for alot of suggestions, so here are the type of foods I`m looking for; Vegetibles I`m trying to gain weight in both muscle and good fat. List them for me. Startches- Other then Potato`s (Which I love) what other vegetables are good for energy? Fruits First and for most which fruits do you highly reccomend for energy? I understand that apples are good. Protein I understand there is the "leg" rule. The less legs the more protein, making chicken really good, but fish just about the best. Which type of fish has about the most protein? I am looking for enough healthy foods to eat for all my meals, all week. SO variety helps alot. I am concerned with gaining good weight, developing strong muscle, having more energy, and calcium and all of that good stuff. Teach me something.
