When it comes to building muscle for us naturally skinny guys, often times consuming enough calories on a consistent basis can become difficult. In fact, the inability to hit your necessary calories can be and probably is the biggest reason you aren’t gaining any weight/putting on any muscle. And if you continue to fail at reaching your macronutrient goals for the day, you’ll never grow, period.
It’s not your metabolism!
In many cases one only assumes they are eating enough only to end up disappointed when they step on the scale. Heck, many of the emails I receive are from guys who are convinced that gaining weight is just not possible…at all. They believe their genetics won’t allow it or their metabolism prohibits it…but it’s simply not the case. Gaining weight is a simple matter of energy balance, and although some of us may require slightly more calories than the average person, the formula for packing on size is the same.
Because I know how frustrating it can be to bust your ass in the gym only to gain no weight, or how torturous it can be to force food down your own throat just to ensure you’ll move the scale, I am going to give you something that is going to make hitting your calories a breeze. I am going to share with you 7 easy to make, high calorie, nutrient dense weight gainer shake recipes that can be made in less than 2-3 minutes.
7 Homemade Weight Gainer Shakes for Skinny Guys
Prepare: Throw all ingredients into a blender for 30-60 seconds.
These are just some of my personal favorite homemade weight gain shakes but please feel free to adjust the ingredients to your liking. Don’t get caught up in having the exact items for each recipe and I encourage you to experiment with different blends. The idea is simply to put together a high calorie, nutrient dense, mass building shake that will make reaching your calorie goals for the day much easier.
The recipes above all consist of 600-800 calories and can be increased (or decreased) by manipulating the serving sizes of each recipe item.
1 More Recipe – The Heavy Weight Shake
At a whopping 830 calories and almost 70 grams of protein, this is my Heavy Weight Shake. Being a father of 4, married, and having many obligations outside of my business, sometimes I am limited on time and packing in over 800 calories with 1 quick smoothie is absolutely necessary if I want to hit my calories for the day.
Try Bony to Brawny for $5
I am sure by now you are familiar with Bony to Brawny, the muscle building program I used in order to transform my body in 12 weeks for the first time. If you’ve already started the program, then you’re probably already making gains and getting stronger, but if you haven’t, then it’s probably because you’re still skeptical (which is understandable). Because I have a certain number of lives I want to change this year and because there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Bony to Brawny will help transform your body, I am going to take all of the risk. Try Bony to Brawny for just $5 and don’t pay the remainder UNLESS you are 100% happy with the results you’ve gotten in the first 2-3 weeks, period.
