Can you tell me what types of foods are available to increase muscle growth/strength?

Increasing lean body mass and strength first requires an increase in weight bearing exercise, because the body has no reason to develop more muscle unless that muscle is needed to do something. Increased exercise also has the typical consequence of increasing appetite, which is helpful when a person is trying to increase muscle growth.

Building additional muscle requires high-quality protein. You may want to review the protein profile on our website for ideas about protein-rich foods and accompanying recipes. We especially like legumes, nuts, seeds, and fish as staple protein sources, and for individuals who can consume dairy products without adverse reaction, we like moderate amounts of those foods as well.
