Lean Muscle Meal Plan

The Lean Muscle Meal Plan is designed to help you gain lean muscle mass with minimal to no body fat. This can be a little tricky and cardio exercise will play an important role in your overall goal for building lean muscle.

Building lean ripped muscle requires more attention to detail to your nutrition than meal plans catered toward sheer size and mass. All that being said your muscles still require larger amounts of the right foods and nutrients than the average Joe to recover and grow.

You may find the below lean muscle meal plan is actually a comfortable nutrition plan as you won’t feel like you’re overeating. You’re not necessarily restricting your calorie intake that much either. It’s a happy medium. This makes it a solid meal plan for maintaining or preserving muscle as well.

Lean Muscle Building Meals

Lean Muscle Meal 1
› 2 whole eggs and 4 egg whites
› 1-2 servings of oatmeal

Lean Muscle Meal 2
› 1.5 scoops of whey protein
› 8 ounces of milk* or water
› 1 banana

Lean Muscle Meal 3
› 6-8 ounces of steak

Lean Muscle Meal 6

* Milk works for some while others it doesn’t. Some are lactose intolerant. It’s also been said that milk thickens the skin. So milk is optional. Also some may prefer skim milk, which I’m personally not a fan of.

Get Ripped with the Right Foods

My Lean Muscle Meal Plan can be anywhere from 2800-3400 calories.  The portions of course can be modified depending on where you’re at and what your goals are. You can mix and match the meals, or substitute foods within the meals.

Also, you can cater the above nutrition plan so that your protein shakes are around your workout times. I personally like to have a shake post workout.

Though calorie intake is important in this nutrition plan for lean muscle, the types of calories are probably more important. The Lean Muscle Meal Plan is designed to boost your body’s metabolism throughout the day and give you the energy you need for your workouts.

These foods have the proper nutrients to help your muscles recover and grow. The meals in this lean muscle nutrition plan are loaded with essential vitamins and nutrients, so not only will you get ripped, you’ll also be eating extremely healthy.
