Quick Cooking Tips To Build Muscle Mass Fast

In a previous post I discussed some major, but often overlooked obstacles to weight gain.

You first need to create an ideal environment to encourage weight gain. Everyone has a set weight that their body wants to stick to. Therefore you must make a conscious effort and 'force' your body to gain weight.

Here again are the 6 obstacles to weight gain in order to refresh your memory:

1. Do not try to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time
2. Do not be overly active when you can help it
3. Try not to worry excessively
4. Limit any cardio or excessive sports at this time
5. Get at least 8 hours of sleep every night
6. If you smoke cigarettes, try and quit

Keeping these 6 points in mind while changing your eating habits will help immensely.

You need to be eating 4-6 times daily, especially if you have a fast metabolism. High protein foods and frequent meals prevent muscle tissue from breaking down and being used by the body for energy.

Do you know what works best for myself and a lot of other hard gainers? Milk! I actually make my own protein drinks. Here is the recipe:

Highly Effective Protein Drink

1 cup of skim milk (or 2%)
2/3 of a cup of skim milk powder
1 raw egg
1 huge squirt of Nesquik chocolate syrup

This drink provides approximately 32 grams of protein and is quick, tasty and inexpensive. At times, I will drink 2 quarts of milk daily with my meals and in my protein shakes.

Combined with heavy weight training, you will grow like a baby! In fact, milk is so nutrient rich that it is vital for people in the early stages of life. It helps you to grow very rapidly.

Here is another quick meal for fast weight gain:

Toasted Bacon Sandwiches

Place 6 slices of turkey or chicken bacon on a plate covered with a paper towel. Microwave on high for approximately 3 minutes and 30 seconds. Cooking times vary depending on your microwave. Make sure the bacon is spread evenly over the plate and the paper towel.

When finished take 4 slices of whole wheat bread and place them in the toaster. Use 3 strips of bacon per sandwich. Divide them in half placing them crossways on your sandwich like a log cabin.

You can also make a protein shake to go along with your toasted bacon sandwiches while the bacon is cooking. You may either use the same recipe above or replace the skim milk powder with a high quality protein powder.

This meal will provide approximately 54 grams of quality protein and is quick and easy. The 'last' thing that you want to be doing when you get in the door is slaving over a hot stove!

I used to sit around after work baking bland chicken breasts for 45 minutes. No more! I learned quickly through trial and error how to improvise. I am a real hard gainer who has a real life!

You also must be eating more calories than you consume. This is what actually makes you gain weight. If not, you will more than likely become stronger but not necessarily bigger.

If you are not used to eating larger quantities of food try adding a little more at a time. A glass of milk here, a bran muffin there, it could be a variety of foods.
