The American College of Sports Medicine suggests in it’s position statement on protein consumption, that by consuming as little as 0.72 grams of protein per lb of body weight per day, you can effectively repair damaged muscle tissue, build lean muscle mass and limit the chances of negative side effects.

Fat does not just make people fat because it is bad for them, at 9 calories per gram, a small amount of fat can contain a staggering amount of calories. Following this logic, it is important to understand that in order to consume more calories, fat is essential to your muscle building diet. Certain types of fatty acids, (fat) when consumed properly, can not only increase your calories, but they have been scientifically proven to lower unwanted body fat levels, increase muscle building hormone levels, increase brain function and alertness and provide an additional energy source for your body.

As you can see, these are some pretty great side effects! By consuming between 40 and 60 grams of “heart healthy” fat per day, spread over 5 meals, you can ensure that you will be able to get the benefits that dietary fats have to offer, without taking in the excess of calories often associated with fat consumption.

Take these bodybuilding nutrition tips and implement them into your everyday diet. After a few weeks of hard work and diligence you will gain muscle mass.
