MuscleHack Show Podcast 6 – Do You Need To “Eat Big” To Get Big?
Listen on iTunes Here [UK iTunes here] (please subscribe & leave a positive review, guys – thanks)
Here is a summary of the points covered in this podcast:
(1) THE LINKS MENTIONED – CALCULATOR & LEAN GAINS DIETS
- Here is the MuscleHack Calorie and Protein Calculator
- Here is my GLAD “lean gains” diet (moderately high-carb diet)
- Here is my MANS “lean gains” diet (carb cycling)
(2) MARK’S CONFESSION TIME
My confession is that I used to believe this. When I first started training, I bought into it because I was a skinny guy who had trouble putting on any weight whatsoever – muscle or fat. It therefore made sense to me.
(3) GUT CHECK
However, I soon got fat. I became a typical skinny-fat guy. Not much muscle, but a big old gut. I’d then diet and and end losing fat AND muscle (because I hadn’t created my Total Six Pack Abs cutting system at that point so I lost muscle).
Then I’d bulk again and gain back my gut. This crappy cycle continued until I started my serious research in this field 🙁
(4) THE RIGHT CALORIES
You only need to eat about 200-300 Calories above maintenance to fuel full recovery and growth. Any excess calories will be stored as fat.Click here to learn how many cals & protein to build muscle without gaining fat Click To Tweet
(5) DON’T OVEREAT PROTEIN
Protein is not “free food”. Excess protein will also be converted to fat. About 2/3rds of excess protein is converted to sugar in the body – and then from sugar to fat. Everything – protein, carbs, fat – converts and is stored as fat if eaten in excess.
See this post for a precise formula for daily protein intake.
(6) BOTTOM LINE…
The bottom line is…extra food does not equal extra muscle
