Being too concerned with a specific diet is overkill. I want you to focus on eating right for life.
Too many times people get caught up in following this diet or that diet and never stick to anything.
To eat right you have to eat nutritious foods and get enough calories to put on muscle.
Since we as ectomorphs have a hard time gaining weight we can get away with eating more 🙂
We’ll mainly be eating good sources of protein, carbs, and fats.
Staying away from sugary unhealthy foods is a must. You can lift weights all day but if you’re diet is lacking you won’t get the results you’re after.
Good Sources of Protein
- Chicken Breast
- Lean Turkey
Good Sources of Carbs
Good Sources of Fats
- Olive Oil
- Coconut Oil
You’ll have to tailor your eating to nutritious foods that you enjoy. You’ll pick your foods after you figure out your caloric needs.
Do I have to count calories?
Yes and no. If you want to be successful and know why and how you can duplicate that success than yes you need to count calories.
If not then don’t.
Counting calories is a key skill to have if you want to gain muscle.
You’ll be able to gain muscle without putting on much fat.
When it comes time to cut to show off your new muscle counting calories will play a big part.
Put in the time and effort it takes to learn how to count calories. It really isn’t that difficult and pays major dividends.
But I’m not a great cook..
I wasn’t either. I’m still no top chef but I make due.
This is another skill you’ll have to learn. Once you learn how to cook delicious healthy food you’ll feel powerful and see results quick.
