    3 Tips for Bulking On a Budget - New Newsletter Mini Article

    Skinny guys rejoice!

    We've all been at the stage where eating to gain muscle seems like a full-time job, and no matter how much you like turkey sandwiches, the thought of eating two in a row makes you want to run to your nearest bathroom with your hand over your mouth.

    Besides, who has the money to eat 4,000 high-quality calories per day?

    It's time to close your wallet and open your mind. Here are three strategies for bulking on a budget, no fork or knife needed.

    1. Ever hear of the "rock" analogy? You know, the one where the professor has a jar and he puts the big rocks in first, followed by the pebbles, and then the sand? By adding each component to the jar in this order, he was able to fill the jar completely. If he had poured the sand in first, he'd have no room for the big rocks.

    Well, try looking at your body in the same way. After you eat a big meal, your body still has room for some extra muscle-building protein.

    Try mixing one scoop of Nitrean protein in water and slamming it right after every meal. Do it three times per day and you've instantly added an extra 300 calories and 60 grams of protein.

    2. Most guys don’t get nearly enough high-quality fat in their diet. One fantastic source is extra virgin olive oil. But screw the idea of the pouring it over a salad. Just take a spoonful two times per day! That's an extra 250 calories and 28 grams of joint-lubricating, healthy fat. Try doing it after your meal and protein shake for a triple-whammy.

    3. Peanut butter sandwiches are crap food for kids, right? Well, not if you make them with good ingredients! Every night before you go to bed, grab two slices of whole-wheat bread, and spread some natural peanut butter and sugar-free jelly on them. Wash it down with a glass of 2-percent organic milk and you've got an extra 500 calories of protein, carbs, and fats.

    Sure, getting big takes time, but isn't it nice to know you can speed things up without cooking a full meal?
