Muscles are all about strength. Actually, there is a directly proportional theorem between three things, the heavier you lift- the stronger your body becomes- the muscle will grow bigger. Apart from heavier weights, there is one more important thing in building muscles. Yes, we are talking about nutrients. Following are the 10 best lean muscle building foods which you should definitely add to your diet.

Beef is important for building lean muscle because it is very rich in protein, cholesterol, zinc, B vitamins and iron content.

Fortunately, Indians can eat this. The protein in eggs has the highest biological value and has the ability to boost lean muscle and strength gains. Eggs are full of vitamins B6, B12, D, and E, phosphorus, zinc, vitamins and minerals.
