Gain muscle you can really see!
What to eat to gain muscle
Generally, you can gain around 0.5 kilograms of lean body mass (muscle) per week with a good routine and diet, although this depends on your experience (beginners can gain muscle faster than intermediate or advanced lifters) As fat and muscle are separate tissue systems, you can gain muscle whilst losing fat, giving you a muscular but lean appearance
You should eat around 2g of protein per kg of body mass (about 1g per pound) per day, although this will vary depending on your weight, body fat % and body goals
As well as eating a high level of protein, you also need to consider your overall macronutrient balance (learn more about macronutrients here) Protein should make up around 25-30% of your diet (calorie intake)
