The goal of a bodybuilding weight gain program is to put on size
and weight, for weight gain purposes, a general guidline should be as
follows in terms of nutrient consumption
2 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight
4 grams of carbs per pound of bodyweight
.5 grams of fat per pound of bodyweight
So using the example of a 180 pound bodybuilder, this would
360 grams of protein per day
720 grams of carbs per day
90 grams of fat per day
Total Calories per day: 5,040
A sample bodybuilding weight gain diet to put on lean
muscle mass would need to include a high quality
Meal Replacement Product
that can be consumed easily with a meal to insure enough caloric intake
as well as be consumed during a workout to prevent MUSCLE BREAKDOWN while
it is occuring.
It would also be neccessary to supplement the diet with
an advanced high quality protein blend.
Eating 4 times per day along with protein drinks inbetween is all that is necessary in my experience
for the purposes of weight gain and putting on muscle mass.
