Q: I am a 22 years old boy and weigh 57 kg. Which protein supplements should I take to build a muscular body?
A:The proteins of non-vegetarian source that you can take are , fish, meat etc. For vegetarians try soya, tofu, cheese, pulses- rajmah, channa, moong, matki, nuts etc. Proteins of animal origin are the best sources for high quality protein. Foods of plant origin tend to have a lower biological value and therefore different sources must be combined to gain a complete protein source. For e.g.- pulses and rice, idli, rajmah chawal etc. When choosing protein-rich foods, pay attention to what comes along with the protein. Vegetable sources of protein, such as beans, nuts, and whole grains, are excellent choices, and they offer healthy fibre, vitamins and minerals. The best animal protein choices are fish and poultry. If you are partial to red meat, stick with the leanest cuts, choose moderate portion sizes, and make it only an occasional part of your diet.
