Need to gain lean mass.. need more calories

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. The type of snacks you've been having are for cardio queens, not for people trying to gain lean mass:

    "some type of fruit" = carbs
    "bread+peanut butter" = carbs+fat

    Protein is what builds muscle, every meal, be it a snack or a proper meal should contain some form of protein
    Best sources of lean protein: whole eggs, lean beef, other types of red meats (kangaroo, bison, etc), fish, skinless chicken breast, low fat cheese....I'm sure you know all that ... protein powder shakes are good for convenience and after workouts but don't rely too much on them. In terms of anabolic responses, nothing replaces real food.
    As everyone else mentioned, good fats are your friend


  2. i also find it hard to put in all those cals.i like to eat cottage cheese at night as nasty as it is i mix it with pinnaple.i found that if you eat enough protein up in like the 400gram mark you dont really have to worry about everything else but i know you body can only use up so much protein but if you working at to your max potental your body will utilise it and youll grow.better to get protein thru food than protein shakes but dont get me wrong those are usefull too.

    ...my new saying.. eat like godzilla.. thanks jackellpet ha
    No worries mate.

    Hey, another 'trick' I use is making up bulk chilli con carne. Say about 3kg worth (10lbs), a freeze portions into containers to eat when required.

    1.5kg lean ground beef (or Bison would be better, or us DownUnder lifters use Kangaroo)
    2 tins of tomato
    1 tin of tomato paste
    2 tins of kidney beans
    Squirt of olive oil
    A lifetime's supply of garlic (crushed)
    2 chopped onions
    3 cups of brown or wild rice
    As much chili as you can handle

    After browning the ground meat in a BAP (Big Arse Pot), I just throw it all in together and let it bubble away for a hour - you may need to add in an extra cup or two of water for the rice to absorb.

    Serve with some sour cream to get the calories up, and maybe nuke some broccoli to get in extra veges.

    Can't say what the breakdown is, but it's all in there for growth!

  8. nice guys this is all great.. one question.. EFA sorry not familiar with what that means.. and thanks again guys appreciate it all... i tried the protein shake with 1 cup of oatmeal and a banana and protein powder this morning with my eat not bad at all.... thanks guys keep it coming....

  9. EFAs are essentail fatty acids and they are what keeps you test levels healthy and steady.a must in any bodybuilding diet.i take flaxseed oil plus some supps are better taken with one since they are lipophillic bterrer obsorbed thru the fat tissues.

  10. sweet sweet.. thanks bro
