I feel depressed to read that you can only gain one pound of muscle per week. I’m currently bulking and thought two pounds per week was a reasonable goal. Im 22, 6’1” and started out at 175lbs. After two weeks I’m now at 180 and don’t think I put on any fat. My goal is 200 lbs with below 10% body fat, I’m currently at 11%. But if half the weight I’m gaining is not muscle, then when I get to 200 in 10 weeks I’ll have an extra ten pounds of fat, which will put me at 15% body fat… guess I have to slow down and take a solid five months to get to 200lbs. When I first started weight training in high school, I went from 150 to 175 in three months, without gaining fat, but I guess that was the early results phase.
After ten years of working out regularly and seeing less than satisfactory results, I spent three and a half years devoting little time to fitness and put on fifty pounds of fat. I had tried spending two hours a day in the gym, several different diets, and countless supplements that promised to help me reach my muscle building goals. After seeing the testimonials paired with the 90 day money back guarantee, I decided that I had nothing to lose and purchased the system. I lost a half of an inch of off my waist after just the first week! I achieved better results in 9 weeks than what I had achieved over the past year of working out and dieting. It is awesome to see how so many people are amazed at the results. Just look at the definition in my abs and obliques! What is also incredible is that I have gained over 10 pounds of muscle mass to go along with the 13% decrease in body fat. This system is the real deal and I can't recommend purchasing it enough. The price of this program is a bargain to achieve the kind of life changing results that you will undoubtedly see if you follow the system as it is described. Thank you for all of your assistance throughout the past months Francesco; I couldn't have transformed my body without your help.
Healthy sources of fat include cold water oily fish (such as salmon, mackerel, and sardines), extra-virgin olive oil, peanuts (unsalted), avocado, pecans, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts or flaxseed. Nuts (any sort, just make sure they are unsalted) are a great food to snack on if you're having trouble gaining weight, as they are not only high in calories, but they are actually composed of good quality calories. They contain monounsaturated fats, they are also a good source of protein, fibre and contain a number of essential minerals that are needed for health. For those not consuming any oily fish, you may want to consider taking a fish oil supplement daily. Remember that total dietary fat should supply approximately 30% of your daily calorie intake.
