We've all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, here's information telling why breakfast is critical for Keto Gains.
Your body needs to have more than just protein to build muscle. Susan Bowerman of Herbalife Nutrition notes that protein intake should be spread throughout the day to stimulate muscle protein synthesis for muscle gain. Starting your day off with a breakfast that includes proteins and fatty acids is a great way to start that cycle.
Fatty acids obtained through nuts, seeds, fish, olive oil and avocado are important for building muscle. The right balance of carbs are a key factor in building muscle, so choose your carbs wisely by avoiding sugar and refined carbs, and focus on beans, fruits and vegatables.
