• Hardgainer Diet – What Hardgainers Need To Eat To Build Muscle
  • If you’re someone who is really struggling to gain weight, you need to put yourself on a hardgainer diet. This is a diet that is more calorie dense and will therefore provide an overabundance of calories in order to help you generate lean body tissue.

    Those who do not follow a hardgainer diet usually find themselves struggling for years in a cycle where they’ll gain a couple pounds but lose them just as quickly.

    Planning out your hardgainer diet will leave nothing to chance so you’ll know at all times what you need to be eating in order to see the results you’re looking for.

    Here is a sample meal plan that you should follow. It’s based around an intake of 4500 calories which should be enough to get any skinny guy growing. If you use this hardgainer diet for a week or two and still aren’t seeing progress, then double up on some of the serving sizes until you do.

    (Use my free bodybuilding workout routine in conjunction with this diet plan to get the best out of both of them)

    Spreading your meals evenly throughout the day will be a good idea and will help you get a steady stream of nutrients to the muscle tissues. As you progress throughout the week for variation you can sub in foods of a similar nutritional value and create your own mix of meals.

    For example in your hardgainer diet you may want to include an apple instead of a banana on some days, some turkey rather than chicken, a potato rather than rice, and so on. As long as you replace fruits for fruits, meat for other protein sources, and starchy carbohydrates with similar foods you should hit your daily total calorie intake and see great results.

    Coming up with a hardgainer diet that you do enjoy and can follow on a daily basis is one of the most important things you can do for success when trying to gain muscle mass, so be sure not to overlook this. If you can include foods that you enjoy naturally and are more calorie dense in nature so easier to get down, you should find that you have good success while following this diet plan.

    If you’re struggling to figure out how to create more daily meal plans similar to the one above, I feel your pain! It can be a real HASSLE and very time consuming…and that can really throw water on the fires of your determination to get in shape and gain muscle mass.
