Muscle Mass Diet

Muscle Mass Building Diet Plan

Muscle mass needs planning, gaining muscle won't just happen by accident, you need to plan your training and your diet as well as your recovery. If it sounds a lot, then you'll know why every dude you meet is not packed full of muscle and brimming with health.

Increasing your muscle mass by adding 30 pounds of bodyweight and 50% is fat is not a good mass gain diet. The objective when planning any good muscle mass building diet is to aim for increasing lean body mass while maintaining your body-fat level and NOT increasing body-fat.

When you build muscle you need to increase the amount of calories you eat every day, it cannot be done without increasing the calories. Your body-fat increases when the calories you eat are more than the calories you burn, so there's a fine line when eating the calories for muscle gain ONLY.

It's called smart growth for a good reason, if you consume too many calories you'll kick-start fat-storing which is a process that's not easily stopped. The solution is actually simple if you have the discipline to eat 6 times a day at specific times. Obviously this is the ideal or the objective, the diet plan listed can be used as a guide to what a perfect split of daily nutrition for muscle growth looks like using the sample meal options below.
