When it comes to gaining muscle if you’ve got a fast metabolism it can be difficult to get enough calories in to gain muscle. Typically it has to hover in the 3,000–4,000 range (depending on your size).

Getting that amount of calories in clean calories is extremely hard, and often you have to eat so much you feel like throwing up.

That’s where protein powder comes in. It’s not just for building and repairing muscle that’s been broken down, it’s to aid in hitting our calorie intake. Adding in a couple scoops of protein in some milk twice a day can be the difference between gaining muscle and staying the same size. I talk about that a lot in my free course and how it’s important to keep track of your calories.

Think about it 500 calories a day is all it takes to gain one pound a week. That’s about 3 scoops of protein and 2 cups of milk. That’s it! You can have that before (or after) your breakfast, and before bed. For more on supplements, including whey protein and a few others you should be taking, check out the podcast above.
