Remember the saying that “muscles are made in the kitchen”? Although it refers to six pack abs, it’s true for other muscle groups too. If you want to build a fitness model’s body, following a good muscle gain diet is just as important as working out.
Skinny Muscles is the fitness blog where skinny guys can find information, advice and inspiration about healthy weight gain and muscle building. Our editorial policy is dictated by the needs of our readers and it regularly features other muscle gain diets and meal ideas for skinny guys.
A couple of months ago we teamed up with Chris Heskett to develop series of workout plans for beginners. Our collaboration has resulted in four different body workout plans that are divided into two groups: this suitable for gym goers and another for those who workout at home.
As strength and conditioning coach, personal trainer and a fitness model, Chris knows the importance of good nutrition and food for muscle growth. That’s why he has designed a muscle gain diet to accompany his workout plans.
What is the Muscle gain diet: meal ideas for skinny guys?
It is a sample eating plan for anyone who works out and wants to build muscles. The diet is presented in a very visual format and contains pictures of the recommended foods and meals.
