Reset your body from the inside out by getting your nutrients from a delicious array of whole foods, explains wellness expert and celebrity trainer Jackie Warner.

Here’s what you should be looking for: whole grains and legumes (for zinc, lysine selenium, B vitamins, and slow-digesting carbs), the most colorful array of veggies you can find (for beta-carotene, micronutrients and minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and indigestible carbs that help keep you from snacking on less nutritious foods), lean protein (for muscle building and satiety), and healthy fats from foods like nuts, avocado, and olive oil (for muscle building, tyrosine, and overall healthier thyroid function).

Lastly, take advantage of the good side of natural sugars as a fuel source during exercise and to help nutrient absorption post-workout. Make sure you’re getting a good balance of fiber, healthy carbs, and lean protein, all of which will help you develop lean muscle tissue and lose fat fast. Here are some of Warner’s favorite muscle reboot foods that can help you do just that.
