How do you bulk up without filling your cupboards with Protein Bars and Shakes?
As I already said in another post you need 1 GRAM of Protein for every lb of body weight.
Protein isn’t the only thing you need in your meal plans to gain muscle.
You need Carbohydrates & Fat too.
Here is a 1 Day Plan which might encompass a typical day.
It’s based on 5 meals per day to gain muscle.
2 Whole Eggs, preferably scrambled.
1 Cup of Milk (Fat Free)
1 Cup of Cooked Oatmeal prepped up with Milk.
Put a handful of Raisins in with the Oatmeal.
Optionally, you may wish to mix in some fruit with the Oatmeal too.
7 Ounces of Lean Chicken Breast
A side plate of Salad, be sure to include plenty of Spinach and Peppers.
1/2 a cup of Grated Cheese
1 Bannana, an Apple and an Orange
A Whole tin of Tuna Fish with 2 Slices of Brown Bread
1 Baked Sweet Potato
A small bowl of Stir Fried Vegetables cooked in Olive Oil
A Handful of Blueberries
1 Glass of Orange Juice, Fresh.
2 Scoops of Whey Protein
1 Cup of Fat Free Milk
