The Black Sheep Of Muscle Building Foods: Pork

The Black Sheep Of Muscle Building Foods: Pork

Post  Admin on Tue 23 Aug 2011 - 10:42

If you’re looking to pack on some quality lean mass, the chances are very high that you’re getting all the main stream protein sources that you must add to your regular meals.

You’ve got chicken, eggs, fish, lean red meat, and low-fat dairy products all covered and have evenly distributed these throughout your day.
But, one high quality source of protein that far too many people completely overlook is that of pork.

Not only is pork a great source of protein, but it’s good for your overall health as well.
Let’s have a quick look at a few of the important facts to know about pork.

Why People Avoid Pork

So why is it that pork is often forgotten about anyway?

The most common reason why people often shun pork is simply because they think it’s far too high in fat to be eating and figure it will cause them to gain excess body weight.

This has been promoted in the media to a very high degree so most people are under the influence that this is actually the case.

Only it’s not – not if you choose wisely.

The Nutritional Profile Of Pork

When you choose leaner cuts of pork, it’s actually a fantastic source of protein with 24 grams per 3 oz serving. In addition to this, it also only contains a mere 3 grams of fat, just up from that of chicken and only 127 calories.

To add to these positive nutritional stats, pork is also a terrific source of iron as it supplies you with over 100% of your daily requirements and is also rich in vitamin B12, vitamin B6, thiamine, niacin, selenium, zinc, phosphorus, riboflavin, potassium, as well as magnesium.

All in all, you simply can’t afford to miss out on the nutrition benefits of pork.

Eating On The Cheap

Another very great benefit of adding more pork to your diet is the fact that it’s incredibly cheap. When compared with other protein sources such as chicken, fish, or seafood, pork is priced much, much lower.

For those who are on food budgets, this makes it a great regular addition to your diet. If you have protein requirements that move over the 200 grams per day mark, it can get quite pricey putting your diet together.

Pork will help take the sting out of your grocery bill.

So next time you’re getting set to go grocery shopping to pick up your weekly food supply, make sure that pork finds its way onto your list. Far too many people are completely overlooking what this food has to offer and are not only missing out on nutrition, but taste and variety as well.

The more variety you can get into your diet program, the easier you’ll find it is to follow it and the less likely you’ll be tempted to cheat and go in for that cheeseburger or order up a pizza – both of which definitely aren’t a healthy addition to your muscle building or fat loss diet plan.

Any of you ever try pork? Did you like it?
