If you’re main goal is putting on weight and muscle. There is no easy way to say it, but literally you have to eat more then you think is possible. You really need a strong appetite to be able to eat all the food which is necessary for putting on weight and muscle. Not just any food though, you must eat healthy and ensure you are eating plenty of high calorie foods.
A good weight gain diet and nutrition is critical for gaining muscle mass naturally. As a 25 year old male I was underweight and unhappy with my self image. I was 112lbs and 5’8 tall. Once I decided that being so skinny was killing me and the life I was living was so bad that the future held nothing positive for me. I finally decided that I was not going down without a fight. I would not succumb to being miserable the rest of my life as long as there was something I could do about it.
I took this intensity to the local gym signed up and literally began eating non stop for the next 6 months while pounding my body with weights 3-4 days every week. I went from 112lbs to 160lbs in a little over 6 months and by the end of 1 year I was considered a “body builder” I was noticeably defined and heavily developed by comparison.
A new passion was born in my life. Once people looked at me in disgust now they wanted to be like me, every where I go I get the same question “How did you get so big?” and “If I sign up at your gym will you work out with me?” and obviously the opposite sex noticed immediately the change in my appearance and self confidence and the same girls who used to laugh at me now were throwing themselves at me.
Do not fall victim to the hyped up supplement companies which promise huge muscle gains in no time. It is nothing but BS with no credible research. Don’t get me wrong, supplementation can indeed help out if done correctly, but it’s no magic bullet and the first priority should be eating right and lifting weights.
