4 Easy Tips for an Ecto Meso Body Type

As an ecto meso body type, you have great genes for being lean and defined. But that also makes it very difficult to gain any muscle.

Even though you can probably eat whatever you want, nutrition is super important for you. And you’ll need to have it dialed in to reach your fitness goals.

 The good news is, it doesn’t have to be complicated! With my simple 4 part nutrition framework, you will build muscle and stay lean.

1. Proper Calorie Balance

First, and most important for ecto mesos, is eating enough calories.

Often, ecto mesos have a big appetite and eat more than most people. However, you also burn more calories.

If you’re having issues gaining weight, then you’re still not eating enough! So you need a body type specific calorie target. And you may be surprised by this number.

2. Healthy Food Choices

Next, the food you eat is the easiest change you can make to reach your fitness goals. Try to add more natural whole foods to your diet. And avoid processed or pre-packaged foods.

Healthy foods are more nutrient-dense, which helps fuel your body for peak performance. Exactly what you need if you want to build lean mass.

3. Carbs + Protein

Another key aspect of nutrition is macronutrients – specifically carbs and protein.

Carbohydrates are your body’s easiest source of energy. And protein provides the building blocks for muscle.

When you combine ample carbs and protein you increase protein synthesis. And that’s a recipe for muscle gain.

4. Meal Schedule

Lastly, when you eat affects whether you gain or lose weight. Eating the right amount of carbs and protein around your workout is most beneficial.

During the rest of the day you’ll still want to include protein. But you can substitute fat for carbs as needed.
