Top Food to Build Muscle And Gain Weight

One of the biggest problems guys face when it comes to building muscle and gaining weight is nutrition.

If you don't know what foods and nutrients you need to build muscle then good luck because you have a long and hard road ahead of you.

So to make sure you don't make the same mistakes I made, here is a down and dirty guide to what foods you need, why it's important and whens the best time to consume it.

Proper Nutrition is Just As If Not MORE Important Than Exercising


Because think of your body like a house. You can’t build that house bigger and stronger without the bricks right?

And guess what the “bricks” are when it comes building muscle, CALORIES. And if you’re a naturally skinny guy like myself, then you’re going to have to consume A LOT of extra calories in order to build muscle and build it fast.

So let me break it down for you…

It takes approximately 3500 EXTRA calories to build 1 lb of new body mass.

And I say body mass because it ultimately depends on your genetics and where those extra calories come from that decide how much of those extra calories is converted to muscle and how much is converted to fat.

For example if most of your extra calories come from fats and bad carbs “like chips and soda” you’ll gain mostly fat. But if they came from protein and good carbs “like tuna and whole wheat bread” you’ll mostly gain muscle.

It doesn’t matter how hard you train, if you cannot provide your body with these extra calories on a daily basis (with the right combination of carbs, protein and fats) your body will struggle to build muscle.

The faster you consume 3500 EXTRA calories the faster you'll see muscle gains.

So your goal should be consuming the following foods so you can consume 3500 EXTRA calories as FAST AS POSSIBLE.

Let's do some math, if you consume 500 EXTRA calories each day, in 7 days you would have consumed 3500 EXTRA calories.

So here’s a quick guide into the important food groups and nutritents you need to build muscle. I go more indepth in my 30 Day Build Muscle Challenge, but this should get you going.

Carbs - The main fuel source for your body. Your body breaks down carbs for energy

Fast Acting Carbs (Simple Sugars)

- provides almost immediate energy to your body when it need to.

Impact on muscle gains: In order to build muscle, you need to workout your muscles. but if they do not have enough energy to go through your workouts your results will suffer. That’s where these carbs come in.

Best time to consume: immediately before, during and immediately after your workouts to provide quick energy when your muscles need it most

Foods high in “Fast” Acting Carbs

  • Apples
  • Berries
  • Bananas
  • Oranges

Slow acting carbs (Complex Carbs)

- provides a constant release of energy to your body throughout the day.

Impact on muscle gains: once your muscles are depleted of its energy (due to your workouts) it needs to replenish its energy stores for the next workout.

Best time to consume -pretty much any time, you're not working out.

List of “Slow” / Complex Carb Souces”

  • Oatmeal and non-sugary cereals
  • Whole-grain breads
  • Brown Rice
  • Beans
  • Potatoes

Protein - Used to build, maintain and repair muscle.

Types Of Protein - Whey, Casein, Soy, Egg… (many)

Whey Protein

- a fast acting, easily digested protein. Provides a surge of amino acids (protein) to the muscles very quickly.

Impact on muscle gains: during your workout sessions your muscles demand for protein dramatically increases and to avoid any unnecessary muscle breakdown whey protein is needed

Best Time to consume: immediately before, during and immediately after your workouts to provide protein when your muscles need it most .

Best Whey Protein sources: Supplements

Casein, Soy, Egg, Lean beef, chicken protein

- provides a steady release of protein that your body and muscles can use throughout the day.

Impact on muscle gains: helps repair the damaged muscle tissue and helps build new muscle

Best Time to consume: any time throughout the day when you're not working out.

Foods High in Casein, Soy, Egg, type protein

  • Grilled Chicken and Turkey
  • Egg Whites
  • Tuna and other fish
  • Milk and other low-fat dairy products
  • Lean Beef

Essential Fatty Acids - Used to help increase metabolism, used in Testosterone Synthesis

Types - Mono and Poly Unsaturated Fats

Impact on muscle gains: Helps produce Testerone “Big daddy muscle building Hormone”, increases metabolism, helps decrease inflammation.

Best time to consume: During the day time (not within 2 hours of your workout)

List of Foods High in Essential Fatty Acids

  • Peanuts
  • Almonds
  • Virgin Olive
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Tuna Fish

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the foods you should eat, but it's definitely a start in the right direction of the things you should be eating in order to build muscle and gain weight with the least amount of fat.

If you need help figuring out how to prepare meals that's filled with all of these muscle building nutrients, and actually taste good and easy to create then I highly recommend you check out my 30 Day Build Muscle Challenge Training Program, that comes with one of the easiest and simplest diet plans designed to help you gain 10 lbs of muscle FAST.

Leave a comment below and let me know what is your favorite muscle building food or any simple recipes you like to make, or if you have a question about anything I just discussed in today's post.

“Build Muscle Quickly” – Learn Step by Step How to Change Your Physique Fast!

Hey everybody,

My name is Richard Knight.

First I just wanted to say: If you came here wanting to learn how to build muscle quickly than you've come ot the right place.

Secondly I wanted to say thank you for checking out my blog and I also wanted to take a quick second to introduce myself. And that finding this blog maybe the best thing that could happen to you and your physique, SERIOUSLY!

So first things first.

"Who the heck is this Richard Knight guy and why did he create this blog?"

Well to answer both of those questions I'm gonna have to tell you a little bit about myself.

First off, I was a SKINNY guy. And as I write this post, I still think I am a skinny guy. All throughout high school I was pretty much the tall "skinny" kid, with glasses. And on top of that I had braces. (Yeah, as you could imagine I was a stud when it came to the ladies)

Throughout the years I've been called things like "Skinny", Scrawny, linky, string bean, and my favorite (I don't know why) "Sack of bones".

Well since my highschool years, I've put on a few pounds but nowhere near where I wanna be (I'm about 184 now and I want to be a SOLID 200 lbs). And I know this may sound like alot but when you're 6'3 (or 6'3 and a half depending on who you ask) 184 lbs isn't alot of weight, TRUST ME.

Well anyway, one thing I found out throughout the years is that BEING SKINNY SUCKS.

Which brings me to the reason why I created this blog.

Within the next few weeks I'm going to finally dedicate the time and resources to ultimately change my physique. That's right folks Rich is finally going to "BULK UP" for good.

But what's cool about it is that I've brought my nephew onboard (he swears he can put on more muscle than me for some reason). See me and my nephew are SUPER competitive. It's almost like our relationship thrives on competing against each other.

And that's where this blog was born and also the name of this blog "Build Muscle Challenge". I put this blog up so I can show the world how bad I'm gonna wup my nephew in this little competition of ours.

(More on my nephew a little later)

But what's cool about it, and how this will actually benefit you is that throughout the past couple of weeks me and my nephew have been reading non-stop. I mean literally devouring tons and tons of information on how to gain muscle, how to build muscle quickly, how to get ripped, you name it. We read alot of the popular courses on the internet including but not limited to: Anthony Ellis' program "Gaining Mass" and also Vince DelMonte's No Nonsense Muscle Building course (for an ecourse this one took the longest but it was worth it). And we're now about to devour the book "Scrawny 2 Brawny" by Mehia. Banking . We also read all the Build Muscle magazines (Which made us realize how much those magazines really aren't for skinny guys like us), we've listened to audios, read countless articles, all for one specific purpose.

We want to build muscle quickly. But we want to do it with LESS EFFORT. I know it sounds weird but we only want to do the things that will have a DIRECT impact on our muscle growth. We know it's gonna take  ALOT of hard work and dedication to build muscle quickly but we  don't want to be obsessed with when to take  supplements and shakes  and spending hours at the gym and all that stuff.

We just want a simple plan that we can execute that'll give us the results we need without too much hassles. So we've taken bits and pieces of everything we've learned that GETS RESULTS and combined them so we can get the maximum amount of results with the least amount of effort as possible. So if you wnat to learn how to build muscle quickly with less effort than this is the right place for you. And here's why:

Throughout our challenge we're going to be:

  1. Creating videos
  2. Writing articles
  3. Creating audios (podcasts)
  4. step by step guides
  5. Action plans

all to tell you what's getting us results and what's not getting us results. In other words, what's helping us Build muscle quickly and what's not and how you can use it to build your physique.

We're gonna break down everything from our diet plan, to our workout plan, all the way to our recovery Plan so you can see:

  •  not only what we're eating, but why we're eating it.
  • What we're eating and when (which is VERY VERY important if you want to build muscle quickly)
  • EXACTLY what we're doing in the gym and how you can use that to build muscle quickly and change your physique
  • how much recovery time we're actually giving our bodies for maximum muscle growth
  • what supplements we're using and which ones we steer clear of
  • and a whole bunch more to list
