1. Healthy Food Choices

The food you eat is the easiest change you can make to reach your fitness goals. That being said, it’s not always easy to avoid junk foods disguised as healthy.

For that reason, I’ll give you a healthy grocery list loaded with calorie dense foods.

2. Proper Calorie Balance

Next, finding your personal calorie target gives you the most “bang for your buck”.

Often, ectomorphs have a big appetite. And you probably feel like you eat a lot. In reality, you’re still not eating enough if you’re having issues gaining weight!

Therefore, you need to find a calorie target that helps you gain weight without gaining fat.

3. Carbs + Protein

Third up 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 weight gain.

4. Meal Schedule

Lastly, when you eat affects whether you gain or lose weight. Eating plenty 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.
