10 Bodybuilding Diet Tips For Fast Muscle Gain
Strategy -1: How Much Food You Really Need To Eat for Explosive Growth
In order to gain muscle most bodybuilding programs recommend you eat 12 - 14
calories per pound of bodyweight daily. Our studies have shown this is not
enough for 76% of skinny males between ages 16 - 35.
Our tests over the last 10 years have confirmed a total daily calorie intake of 19
calories per pound bodyweight effective.
If you have been failing to gain muscle weight, the first step you must do is
increase your daily calories to your bodyweight times 19. This amount of the
proper foods (more on the right foods later ) has shown to kick start even the
hardest gainers muscles into explosive growth!
Of course, everyone is different so I recommend you start at 19 calorie per pound
of bodyweight and adjust your calorie intake accordingly based on how your body
Here is an excerpt from my first book detailing how to adjust your calories and
After two weeks following the training and meal plan weigh yourself and
measure body fat:
1. If your weight has increased by two to four pounds and your body fat
either stayed the same or decreased leave everything as is.( this is what
2. If your weight decreased add another 800 calories daily until bodyweight
stabilizes then calculate your calories by multiplying your new
maintenance daily calories by 125%.
3. If your weight stays the same then add another 500 calories per day until
weight stabilizes, then recalculate your calories by multiplying your new
maintenance weight by 125%.
When you are eating this much, eating the wrong foods will turn your once skinny
build into one more comparable to a Sumo wrestler!
For Lean Muscle gain, you must eat the right foods in the right combinations and
Strategy - 2: What Foods You Must Eat (and avoid) To Boost Your Muscle Mass... Not Turn Into a Fat Pig!!
Eating to support explosive growth is not as simple as just eating enough
calories. You need to eat the right calories!
You must eat foods dense in all the essential nutrients your body craves when it
is being shocked into explosive growth!
If you are missing even one crucial nutrient, no muscle growth can occur and you
may actually lose muscle.
This is assuming you have no previous muscle memory (had big muscles in the
What are the right calories? Eat fresh live foods and stay away from heavily
processed and refined foods.
An example of a good nutrient dense muscle building meal is a steak with green
vegetables totaling 600 calories.
An example of a bad meal is deep fried chicken nuggets and fries for 1200
Anotherexample would be to eat a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast instead of a
bowl of Captain Crunch Cereal.
Many more examples and a complete listing of the exact foods your muscles
need for explosive muscle growth are all presented in The Underground Mass
Secrets Master Manual. The charts and step by step system makes this powerful
and advanced knowledge accessible by even a simpleton!
Eat nutritionally dense foods and to get the most out of your meals by applying
the next powerful strategy:
Combine foods together that are compatible for best digestion (thus best delivery
of necessary muscle building nutrients).
Strategy -3: Why You Are Cheating
Yourself Every Meal And Don’t Even
Do you want to gain muscle without gaining excess fat? Or how about avoid
(Indigestion is a sign of digestive trouble. Poor digestion equals poor supply of
muscle building nutrients).
Or how about finally stop blowing those out of nowhere sick farts at work in class
or worst of all when you meet new people in elevators!
Putting a bit of effort to eat meals of compatible food combinations aids to digest
a fuller extent of the foods you eat.
This translates to more nutrients per calorie to support explosive muscle growth
and reduced unwanted fat gain!
I will give you some examples of good food combinations and bad food
•• protein and fibrous carbs ( steak and spinach salad)
• protein and fats ( Chicken Cordon Bleu )
• protein and simple carbs (many weight gain powders, most meal
replacement bars )
• carbs and fats (cheese bread, pizza)
Once you are eating good food combinations at each meal, you can gain an
unstoppable muscle building momentum by applying the next strategy:
Strategy - 4: A Simple But Overlooked
Factor Critical To Successfully Building
Eating consistently on a schedule is crucial to provide quality nutrients for muscle
growth when your body needs it.
A good rule to follow is eat a nutritious meal every two to three hours and never space two meals more than five hours apart.
If you are eating the right foods consistently then your body will always be in a
positive growth state.
But for us hard gainers there are some underground secrets you can follow to
really boost muscle growth from a nutritional standpoint.

workout routine. I will get into the specifics of this exclusive and potent workout
system in the next report “Underground Training Strategies”
At these two times substitute your regular meal with what I refer to as a “Power
Strategy- 6: How Underground Mass
Building “Power Meals” Load You Up
And Energize You For Explosive Growth
“Power Meals” contain very specific foods combined with one purpose essential
for explosive muscle growth. Rapidly and thoroughly replenish muscles with
particular nutrients to minimize the occurrence of catabolic actions. (catabolic is
opposite of anabolic )
Power Meals not only accelerate lean muscle growth but also minimize muscle
tissue breakdown that is common from hard resistance training combined with
poor meal planning.
To make a power meal use a quick digesting source of protein and combine with
particular energy foods which can also be digested fast.
An example of this would be a quality whey protein or egg protein blended with
Power meals are for specified times only. Too many power meals will
compromise lean muscle growth by increasing fat gain and lowering your
sensitivity to insulin.
Strategy - 7: Why Most Muscle Gain
Diets Will Not Work For You.
For the natural athlete it is crucial to feed your body the nutritional components it
requires to produce testosterone at its peak potential.
Low testosterone levels equal little or no muscle mass! For building muscle, you
must have decent testosterone levels.
This is the main difference why males are more muscular than females.
It is because men have higher testosterone levels than females.
Your body uses cholesterol to manufacture Testosterone (simplified).
To give your body what it requires for optimal testosterone production, you must
follow a balanced meal plan that provides ample amounts of the right fats.
Most diets and meal plans are deficient or lacking the ideal amount and/ or types
of fats critical for the natural athlete to optimize testosterone levels.
In my “Truth About Fats Revealed “report, I summarize and reference over 200
scientific studies confirming the disturbing details.

Fiber is The “Turbo Charger” your digestive system needs to maximize the
movement and assimilation of food each day. Kind of like an assembly line!
The more production you can get out of your digestive system the more you can
fuel your muscles for growth!
Strategy - 9: The Truth About Protein
Do you really need the massive amounts of protein recommended by gym rats
and bodybuilding magazines for muscle growth?
It is crucial you get enough protein and spread it out throughout your day.
Protein requirements have been exaggerated for many years in the interests to
sell more protein.
On the other hand, protein requirements are definitely higher for a person or
athlete training to gain muscle than for a lazy couch potato hunting for his next
show with a remote control!
reference for muscle growth and up to 1.5 grams protein per pound of lean
muscle is recommended under certain rare circumstances.
These levels of protein are more than enough to ensure you get enough for
muscle growth yet not strenuous to the average healthy active male.
My “Protein Exposed” report goes into much more detail than is practical here.
