Eating for Weight Gain
The Two Most Important Factors for Muscle Growth
If you are a hard gainer it is
vital that you eat more calories than you burn off and
also lift heavy weights. Not only that, great attention must
be paid to how you accomplish these tasks.
All too often I see thin people eating nothing but junk in
the hope that they will pack on the pounds. Chips, cookies
and cakes will help but they do not build muscle!
You must have the proper balance of protein,
carbohydrates and fats in order to gain quality
In addition to eating correctly you must also weight
train. Taking protein powder and not lifting weights will do
nothing for you! You will only be wasting your money!
If you do end up gaining weight it will more than
likely be fat. Fat is NOT attractive! Nor is it healthy.
You must remember that diet and exercise work
together. Most people will tend to favor one over
Doing both together, and in the right fashion will ensure
quick, quality weight gain.
In Order to Grow, You Have to Eat!
Most people don't realize that
food intake is just as important as weight training.
It does take planning but it can be done! Of
all the macronutrients (carbs, protein and fats) the one that
is overlooked the most by hard gainers is protein.
Why Is Protein So Important?
With any weight training you partake in you tear down
muscle tissue. This is especially true with the type of
weight training that you need to do. The heavier and more
intense your weight lifting sessions are the greater your
requirement for protein becomes. When muscle tissue is
repaired properly and as quickly as possible it becomes
stronger. In other words it grows.
Your protein should come mainly from animal sources and
you must keep track of the amount of protein that you
consume on a daily basis. Guessing will not help you.
For every pound that you weigh make sure to consume 1 gram
of quality protein. This will ensure optimum muscle
growth. You must also eat more often since your body can
only assimilate so much protein in one sitting. I needed to
eat a minimum of 5 meals daily.
