It’s true ‘You are what you eat,’ so you better eat big to get big. You want to know the “secret,” on gaining real weight. Well, there is no secret or no magic pill that’s going to put some real mass on your bones.
Just like dieting, gaining weight also need work. It takes discipline, just like training.
Carbs are an important part of your diet. They provide energy, enhance muscle recovery and help you with the bulking process. The right kind of carbs can be used to bulk up and put on massive size during the offseason.
We have compiled this list of 6 great high-carb that you can use to bulk.
1. Breakfast Cereal
We aren’t talking about sugary cereals here, cereals with high or at least 2g of fiber per serving are good because fiber slows digestion, making cereal a good source of longer lasting energy reserves for a tough session in the gym. For additional protein mix one rounded scoop of whey protein and add some milk.
Cereal is a great high-calorie source while at the same time giving you high energy for a hard workout.
High in carbohydrates, easy to prepare, Pasta is an excellent energy source for the hardgainers. Always choose the healthier whole wheat based derivative you’re guaranteed to get slow burning energy. Pasta isn’t all carbs, 100 g of whole wheat pasta provides around 15 g of protein as well, a good healthy source of additional protein.
The best part is that it goes well together with some good protein for an overall balanced meal.
