How Much Carbs, Fats And Protein You Really Need to Build Muscle Fast

Question: “Rich, How much carbs, protein and fats should I eat to build muscle?”

This is a great question because nutrition is so important.

And I know this is a big stumbling block for a lot of guys, so let's dive in and clear the air. Remember you need to consume 3500 extra calories in order to gain 1 lb of body mass.

And the reason why I say body mass is because it all depends on where those calories come from that will determine if you're gains are mostly muscle or mostly fat.

For example: if the majority of your calories from fat and bad carbs like chips and donuts MOSTLY IF NOT ALL FAT

But if the majority of your calories come from lean meat and whole grain sources like, lean beef, whole wheat bread , and fruits MOSTLY MUSCLE.

So what's a good carbs, protein, fat ratio to build muscle fast with the least amount of fat?

The truth is, there are many of these ratios. And each one has its pros and cons. So I just going to tell you what has worked for me.

The ratio that has helped me gain the most muscle with the least amount of fat is the: 30 / 40 / 30 ratio.

30 / 40 / 30 ratio = 30% Protein / 40% Carbs / 30% Fat

For example: If you need to consume 3000 calories a day to build muscle then you'd need to consume

30% Protein = 900 Calories = 225 grams of PROTEIN per day (1g of protein = 4 calories)
40% Carbs = 1200 Calories = 300 grams of CARBS per day (1g of carbs = 4 calories)
30% Fats = 900 Calories = 100 grams of FATS per day (1g of fat = 9 calories)

Your next step would be to create a meal plan that helps you reach these numbers every single day. And if you're anything like me when I first started out and you don't have a clue of how to create a muscle building meal plan Then I highly recommend you check out this all out, check out
