Common question- “No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to increase my muscle size. How much should I be eating in order to accomplish this?” . . Answer: The amount of food that you should be consuming to increase muscle mass will vary from person to person and activity level. It’s much harder for the muscles to recover and build without proper caloric intake. Calories = energy, energy = great workouts 💪🏼 Great workouts = need for recovery. Need for recovery = more calories needed. Make sure that you are consuming enough protein and foods that are nutrient dense. Eliminate as many empty calorie foods as you can. Do not fear carbs. I would schedule your carb intake around your workouts. For example, be sure that you have a serving of carbs both before and after your workout for optimal recovery. On days that you work large muscle groups, like legs for example, you should up your carb intake even higher than normal for the most benefits. . . 📸 @bluelineefex
