    Stop Messing Around. Eat For Gains

    Stop Messing Around. Eat For Gains

    Can you gain 30 pounds of mostly-muscle in 10 months? Here's how one expert did it.

    What's the biggest mistake beginners make? Well, every guy first starting out makes the same mistake: not understanding how much he REALLY has to eat in order to put on size.

    Whenever I have a beginner wax poetic about how he can never put on size despite "eating all day" I ask a simple question: "What did you have for breakfast this morning?" I usually get nothing but crickets chirping.

    The first few weeks of training are a weird phenomenon because it's not uncommon to see quick strength gains. I've seen some guys double their squat or deadlift numbers in a matter of weeks due to the neural adaptations involved.

    Now, granted, for some that's going from a 100 pound pull to a 200 pound pull, but it's still impressive and speaks to how wonderfully adaptive the body is. That said, many get frustrated when they don't see the immediate results in the mirror.

    10 Months of Real Eating
    I lifted weights throughout high-school and college, and while I wasn't bashful about taking my shirt off on the beach, it wasn't until I made a conscientious effort at age 25 to eat my balls off that I really started to see results with my physique.

    I decided I was going to experiment and give myself a 10-month window to eat. I went from 180 to 210 pounds. Here's what a typical day looked like back then:

    1-2 cups of oatmeal and blueberries with scoop of Protein powder
    5 egg omelet with cheese and spinach

    Mid-AM Snack:
    6-8 oz lean beef
    Veggies (anything)

    Early PM (prior to training):
    Protein Drink

    First Post-Training Meal (60 Minutes Later):
    3 cups cereal with one scoop Protein powder
    1 cup cottage cheese

    Second Post-Training Meal (60 Minutes Later):
    Pasta (2-3 servings)
    Chicken breast

    Third Post-Training Meal (60 Minutes Later):
    2 cups oatmeal

    Rest of the Day:
    I'd try to force down one more whole food meal around 7-8 PM.

    I'd fluctuate my caloric intake based off training days vs. non-training days to control body composition. It took me a while to work up to that much volume of food, but it's what had to be done.

    Any time I have a beginner tell me he can't put on size, it's almost always because he's not having an honest conversation with himself about total food intake. The body isn't going to make muscle out of nothing.

    I like that. Especially if your using PEDís ; your body can handle a lot of excess macros. Eating a lot is easy for me but, choosing the right foods can be difficult for some. Especially if they think they have to eat clean 24/7.
