Many fit guys look at food and see one thing: protein count. And in a way, that makes sense—your muscles need protein to build and deliver those gains you’ve been sweating so hard for.
But truly fit fellas know not to underestimate the micronutrients packed in produce and grains. Vitamins and minerals not only help your internal systems function properly, but also help keep inflammation down and your health status up—powering you through workouts and life. Even those foods with a paltry protein count—veggies, clean carbs, healthy fats—should still be part of your fat-burning, muscle-building diet.
