What should constitute your daily main meal when seeking to aid muscle growth?
I get this question a lot by email so here’s the deal…..
Red meat and veggies is where it’s at!
For those of you taking the low-carb muscle route as in ‘MANS’, your main meal should look like this every day….
* Celery Root (Celeriac)
Why Red Meat?
As well as providing an abundance of protein to aid muscle growth, red meat also increases serum levels of testosterone. It’s also a great source of:
* Vitamins A, E and B
* Conjugated Linoleic Acid
* Coenzyme Q10
I usually have steak or pork with a broccoli and cauliflower mix; a proper muscle-building dinner!
You might want to melt some cheese sauce on top of the veggies for added flavor. Also, why not try a little raw onion on top of your steak, mmmmmmm.
Man, all this talk about food is making me hungry. Think I’ll go whip up a home-made protein bar!

Oh lawd! Do I feel like a tard. I’ve been eating primarily fish, chicken and turkey!! I guess beef and pork is cheaper, anyway, so that’s what I’ll have to do.
Been eating lots of broccoli, though! Mmmm…broccoli.
Definitely go for the red meat Andrew.
Broccoli, the king of vegetables!
I’m a broccoli fanatic!
But what type of red meat do you suggest would be best?
Sirloin and round are the top 2 cuts in my opinion.
Hey Mark im a vegetarian and i want to follow teh MANS diet…what kind of low-carb dinner do you think I can eat..
I can eat the same vegges of course but what should i replace with the meat that you have there…
Lunch and dinner and the main problems and I’m not sure if there are other options than eating tofu for each major meal…
what do you think?
thanks a lot
