MASS GAINERS ARE 💩 HORSE SHIT
By: @jacked.on.plants -
🚶🏽♂️As a skinny guy it’s all too easy to look to mass gainers and weight gainer supplements to help build muscle. The promise of instantly available calories is enticing enough to lure most into buying these mass building supplements. -
⛔️The problem: the only mass these supplements are capable of helping you build is FAT, as they deliver nothing but excess empty nutrition. -
Until you dedicate yourself to improving your whole food nutrition you will toil and tread water in the gym. After trying to build muscle through my entire 20s, it wasn't until I got my nutrition dialed in that I finally started to see fast changes. Supplements should never be part of your game plan until you are committed to eating healthier.
That said, even then, there will never be a place for weight gainer powders if you are looking to add lean muscle and stay healthy. And it doesn’t matter if the gainer is vegan or not, same junk. -
✖️Mass gainers are full of sub quality protein and sugars…neither of which will do a good job of helping you to add quality lean muscle. -
✅When it comes to building muscle the most important thing is the quality of your calories first, and then the amount of calories. Thinking that sheer numbers of calories is the way to build muscle is the fastest way to a fat body and disappointment in your hard earned efforts in the gym.
To build muscle mass you gotta provide your body with a consistent supply of high quality nutrition. -
This should first come in the form of solid nutrient dense foods.
Plant based food does the job better than any other.
EAT MORE PLANTS.
To your healthy gains💚
