Contrary to most people who are trying to LOSE weight, you’re probably a skinny guy like myself who actually wants to GAIN weight.
You might think that building muscle is as simple as eating larger quantities of foods to gain weight, particularly high-calorie foods. However, it’s not quite that simple!
You’ll not only need to eat more overall calories, you’ll also want to make sure you’re eating the right foods in the right amounts in order to make muscle gains.
Here are 5 of the best foods to help you gain weight:
1 – Chicken Breast (skinless)
Skinless chicken breasts are one of the most common foods in the bodybuilding community. Due to the high amounts of protein, as well as the absence of fat, bodybuilders commonly use this food to bulk up.
It is noteworthy that the chicken breast with skin has an increased amount of fat and cholesterol. Thus, you should always buy it skinless. This food can be included in a number of meals and meets the protein needs of a weight gain diet. There is roughly 30g of protein and 0g of fat in 100g of chicken breast.
