Get Muscle Growth With Consistent Eating

You won't get consistent muscle growth without eating enough calories---consistently!!

I was talking to a young athlete the other day and one thing became clear---he was not following his meal plan consistently, day-in and day-out. If you are accustomed to not eating much, 3600 daily calories can seem like a ton of food to EAT EVERY DAY!

If you want your muscles to grow, FEED YOUR MUSCLES CONSISTENTLY! Just lifting weights is not enough to grow your muscles and become a lean, muscular athlete! And, on the days you do lift weights, its best to eat before and after your workout. Read my post on Pre- and Post-Workout Nutrition.

You need a sports nutriton plan geared towards muscle growth. It is not uncommon for some athletes to need 5000 daily calories to fuel muscle growth and recovery!

And, you know my take on supplements: try to get the nutrition you need from food. Save your money! Don't depend on supplements to significantly build your body up!

And, to stop your muscles from breaking down (catabolizing) while you sleep 7-8 hours, a night-time snack or protein drink before you go to sleep is needed. When your body is fasting, your muscles will take the hit.
