How To Build Muscle With The Perfect Ectomorph Diet Plan

By Jeff Kappel

The perfect ectomorph bodybuilding diet doesn't exist just yet. There are many people out there with an ectomorph build who are struggling finding the right ectomorph weight gain plan. Those who have an ectomorph body type usually have extreme difficulty gaining weight. They are called hard gainers. For the most part, society is unsympathetic to their plight. But for those who are trying to gain muscle mass, extra calories to burn is a requirement.

There is one thing that holds true and is a constant in any weight gain plan for ectomorphs. You must EAT if you want to gain weight. It sounds simple in a society where more than 50 percent of the population is overweight. But you have probably figured out by now that three square meals a day isn't going to do the trick.

Providing that you are serious about building muscle and gaining weight, we are not going to be talking to you like we would the rest of the population who is considered obese. You'll need to make sure you body is satisfied all the time and the best way to do this is have smaller meals with smaller breaks during the day to keep your body fueling all day long.

When we talk about eating more it doesn't mean that you can simply intake more calories by eating junk foods that have no nutritional value. You might have heard at some point that it's ok to consume 2x the normal amount of calories and even to buy junk food, but that my friend is something that I would not recommend to you. Quality instead of quantity.

Two of the most important sources to gain weight with an ectomorph diet plan are to implement more lean protein and complex carbs as the majority of the calories that you will be consuming. Other things like low sugar fruits, green vegetables, and essential fats are still important to building healthy muscle. Substitute dairy based products with almond or coconut based alternatives for better results.

The real secret to success when working to gain weight as an ectomorph isn't reaching the finish line first but being able to sustain the results you've achieved once you get there. Don't be in a hurry and throw your body into a state of shock by suddenly increasing your caloric intake by 1,000 or more calories each day. Gradually build up your calorie count over time in order to achieve the sustainable results you're looking for.

If you are considering looking at the use of supplements you won't need a ton of different ones to assist in building muscle and gaining weight. Once again, we are looking for quality versus quantity. Fitness professionals typically recommend things like a high quality protein and a multi vitamin as a starter. The more your body gets used to taking supplements you can decide for yourself if you are interested in taking a weight gainer in congruence with your ectomorph diet plan.

When you combine the three strategies we talked about today you are going to significantly increase the odds of getting to your goals. Even leaving one of these out will make the process of seeing success with your ectomorph diet plan to be delayed.
