How To Quickstart Your Muscle Gain Journey

Let’s eat and grow!It’s so easy, isn’t it?

Yay, bulking (=being in a calorie surplus to build muscle mass)! What sounds like a dream for many, is in my eyes even more difficult than cutting (=being in a calories deficit to lose fat). Why?

  • Finding the balance between gaining muscle and gaining fat: some of us do not like the more “fluffy” look and don’t allow themself to eat enough; others just get into a dreamer bulk (=insane calorie surplus) and gain far too much body fat. The sweet spot inbetween is desirable as too much or too less fat are not favorable for building muscles.
  • Hard gainer: you feel like you eat a lot of food but actually you are such a restless person, that it’s simply not enough; or your appetite is low (stress or whatever) and you just can’t eat that much.

Nevertheless, difficult is not impossible and therefore we collected some tips to help you on your gainz journey 😉 .

It’s Okay To Want To Change Your Body

Body positivity and self love are incredibly valuable to our society. Being different and not having to be ashamed of it are essential: acceptance and tolerance are more important than ever. And is definitely unhealthy to chase (fake) beauty images or to try to look like someone else. But I think there is a dark side to body positivity: being obese is unhealthy! And no, there isn’t such a thing as “healthy overweight”, stop kidding yourself, please!

What Drives Obesity

Gaining fat is really simple: your energy intake is greater than your energy expenditure. You just eat too damn much! Gaining so much fat, that you are actually classified as overweight or even obese, however is a task that takes a lot of consistency and time (and avoiding to look into the mirror). As many drastic changes, this doesn’t happen overnight. But why do you do this to your body?

For overweight people, and sadly a lot of us are overweight, losing weight in form of fat is probably the best thing to improve health. Some of us already lost a lot of bodyfat and keeping it off is a very good idea and already difficult enough.
