I am not getting any bigger - why?
By Lee Hayward
I go to a gym regularly, I train hard, eat right,
but I am not getting any bigger. Why?
I get asked this question a lot, by both men and women
who are desperately trying to put some solid muscle mass
on their bones.
The key building muscle mass is to eat, eat, and eat some more.
99% of the people who call themselves hard gainers are really
just under eaters. A lot of guys will skip breakfast, have a
small lunch or snack during the day, then pig out and stuff
themselves at dinner and think that they are eating a lot.
You need to eat something every 2 hours during the day to
build maximum muscle mass. Eating frequently will make eating
lots of food much easier.
When you want to build maximum muscle mass you should aim to
eat 1.5 grams of protein and 25 calories per pound of bodyweight
each day. Don't just stick to low fat "diet foods". Eat everything!
You need lots of calories and it will be too difficult to eat a
high calorie diet with just low fat foods.
Protein drinks are a great way to get extra protein and calories
in your diet. I suggest that you use the big 5 pound containers
of whey protein powder because these are the best value for
When bulking up you should aim to eat at least 50 grams of
protein and 1000 calories each morning for breakfast. This will
start your day off right for maximum muscle building. It really
doesn't matter what you eat, just as long as you eat. If you are
in a hurry you can have a big protein drink, 2-3 slices of toast
with peanut butter, and a piece of fruit. Or if you have the time
you can cook up steak, eggs, hash browns, pancakes, etc.
For lunch at work or school you can cook foods such as
chicken, beef, turkey, rice, pasta, etc. ahead of time
and put them in a Tupperware container to reheat in the
microwave. Make sandwiches such as tuna, roast beef, turkey,
etc. Mix a protein shake and take it with you in a thermos
or shaker bottle. Take a protein / meal replacement bar.
Take fruits and vegetables i.e. apples, bananas, carrots, etc.
For dinner you can eat basically any meat and potatoes type of
meal. Get some cook books and lean to make some good mouth
watering meals. The tastier you make your meals the easier it
will be to eat the volume of food necessary to build maximum
Good snacks to eat during day include dried fruit and nuts,
cottage cheese, yoghurt, cereal and milk, fresh fruit, protein
bars, and protein shakes, etc.
