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 weight.

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 the other.

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.
