I recently began a muscle building phase with a goal of gaining 7-10 pounds of lean muscle. I’m documenting my progress in an effort to provide you with some valuable insights, which you can apply to your own body sculpting journey.
Since I frequently get asked “Scott, what do you eat on a daily basis?”, I thought I would share exactly what I ate yesterday. Check it out…
Typically I consume more veggies throughout the day. This happened to be a very high starchy carb day with the only veggies coming from the 4 cups of raw spinach in my eggs.
I was more than fine with the extra starchy carbs since it was a CRAZY intense leg training day, which took a lot out of me.
The 2762 calories put me in a slight caloric surplus for the day. With my activity level I have an approximate Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) of 2600 calories.
I have given myself permission to gain some fat during this muscle building phase (approximately a 1:1 muscle:fat ratio), which will still have me looking pretty lean. In order to achieve this I will be avoiding excess surplus calories.
I hope that this share has been helpful to you. Be on the lookout for more meal plans and recipes.
