Hardgainer Tip: 1 Easy Way To Gain Weight Fast!

Wasssup,

I was going through all the feedback I've been getting from my blog and I came across an interesting trend amongst the obstacles and challenges that's holding alot of guys especially people like me (hardgainers) back from gaining weight and building muscle.

And it seems as though the #1 obstacle holding hardgainers back is a good knowledge of the basics.
Alot of guys are lacking the fundamental principals they ought to know if they want to build muscle consistently and with less effort.

I'm still compiling my hardgainers guide which will reveal all of this to you. It's designed to give you the basic knowledge you NEED to know if you want to see consistent muscle gains. Because if you're a hardgainer and you're trying to build muscle fast than you're going to have to do things a bit different from everyone else and if you don't know what those key things are than you'll be spinning your wheels, and wasting a whole lot of effort fro minimal gains.

So today I wanted to share with you the easiest way to gain weight fast.

But before I do, I have to take a step back and go over a fundamental principle for gaining weight and building muscle. In order to gain weight you have to consume an EXCESS amount of calories.

So what do I mean by excess?

You have to consume more calories than your body burns to get get through each day. For example, if your body burns 2,000 calories each day you NEED to consume MORE THAN 2,000 calories to gain weight and build muscle.

After saying that, it's important to point out that you should be getting most of your calories from 1. protein, 2. good carbs, and 3. good fats.

I'm not going to dive in too deep into each of these right now. Just keep in mind that your calories should come from "good" whole food sources rather than junk food. Note that 24g of carbs from potato chips is not the same as 24g of carbs from whole wheat bread.

Ok, so here's the EASIEST way to consume MORE good calories each day to gain weight and build muscle.

You ready?

Ok, drum roll...................

1. Start off by drinking 1 glass of milk after every meal
2. Each week drink at least 1 more glass of milk than the previous week until you reach a gallon a day.

That's it.

I don't know if I told you this but low fat milk is my SECRET WEAPON to building muscle. After every meal, I drink a tall glass of low fat milk. Why is this so effective?

Think about it....

1 cup of low fat milk contains:

8g of protein
14g of carbs

Now multiply those numbers by 6 (since I typically eat 6 meals a day), that's:

48g of EXTRA protein / day (just from milk)
84g of EXTRA carbs / day (just from milk)

That 48g of EXTRA protein and those 84g of EXTRA carbs from milk could mean the difference between your body being in a calorie deficit (you lose weight or remain skinny) and your body being in a calorie SURPLUS (building muscle and gaining weight). And all you have to do is drink some milk.

So if you're having trouble adding more protein and more "good" carbs to your diet just use my secret weapon and DRINK SOME MILK (less effort is the name of the game - you don't have to go out and buy all these protein powders and muscle potions just drink some milk).

Hope this helped,

Rich

Whoever said milk does a body good And that's on top of my meals which 40g of protein each. So I'll let you do the math increase the amount of cups
