I'll always stand by the idea that most people that can't gain muscle well, are doing two things wrong. Improper training for their body type, and eating like a 9 year old schoolgirl.
I certainly understand how hard it can be to eat sometimes, especially when you're not a big appetite person in the first place, and how busy and hectic life can get. One meal everyone should always be able to get, is breakfast. And if there is a meal that takes the trophy for most important, it's this guy - hands down.
As you're now learning, if you want to gain more muscle, you need to eat more food than your body needs. It's called a surplus. In part 1 of Hard-gainers Rx, you learned that you need to cram an immaculate amount of food down your throat a few times a day, in order to calm your metabolism down, and let the muscle building process begin.
Consuming 1000 -1500 calories at a whack is sometimes a difficult task, and buying the ridiculous gainer shakes full of 200 grams of sugar, are not really what you're looking for.
So, for breakfast try this on for size (pun intended):
- 5 scoops of Maximus Protein
- 2T All natural Peanut Butter
- 1 Cup Organic Strawberries (frozen)
- 1T Organic Coconut Oil
- 1 Large Banana
- 3 cups of water
Drink over the next 20 minutes and enjoy about 1200-1300 calories of muscle building goodness!
