Keeping the body in an anabolic state in order to gain weight each day is just not an easy task. It typically specifies careful planning ahead to make sure you’ve got meals for the day. What about when you run short on time and do not have your muscle building foods ready? Don’t skip meals when out on the road whatever you do. It’s best to discover a good fast alternative to keep those calories coming in so that you can build muscle fast.
I’m not a fan of fast food joints but sure I’ve been guilty of throwing down plenty of ninety-nine cent double cheeseburgers at Wendy’s. This can be a cheap way to get some calories and very low grade protein but it’s not a great choice for overall health or muscle development. Let’s look at a few better choices of meals you can have while out on the road.
Santa Fe Grilled Chicken Salad
This is a little gem I found at McDonald’s and it is usually what I order when I take my kids to get their happy meals. For a $4.95 salad at a fast food joint this is actually a better tasting salad than I have had at some expensive restaurants. It comes with a whole slice of grilled chicken, some black beans, and your basic greens. Throw the Newmans Sante Fe dressing on top and it is loaded with flavor. If you want a good meal plus are looking to gain lean muscle without bulking up on unnecessary fats try this out. If it does not have enough calories for you grab a ninety-nine cent grilled chicken wrap as a nice boost to build muscle fast. If you are carb conscious just throw the additional chicken in the salad and feed the wrap to the birds once you go outside because they love those extra carbohydrates. This is a muscle building food that’s great for an individual looking to stay lean on their bulk up.
twelve” Tuna Sub for Subway
With the number of carbs that come on the twelve in. roll I wouldn’t suggest this for the “lean bulker” but it is one of my favorites when I want a whole lot of calories plus protein. Sure it is loaded with fat from the mayo but you actually get a decent balance of carbs, protein, plus fats. Make sure they load it up with tons of veggies so that you can get a large amount of fiber in there to help you slow the digestion and gastric emptying rate of the food.
Did someone say double meat? For the really big appetite choose double meat. As a bonus it comes with double cheese as an option – and yes I take that option thank you very much! For a guy like myself quickly approaching forty years old this option is certain to add some fat around the waist so I only eat it on heavy workout days where I know my metabolism will burn it off. For the younger guys out there that have trouble gaining muscle let alone fat you might probably go triple cheese and not gain any fat while you build muscle fast.
Build Muscle on the Road
We can’t always be prepared with a cooler stuffed with ready meals so you’re going to have those days where you eat out. Just don’t make a habit it of it because it will get expensive plus there are a lot of processed additives in these foods that your body just doesn’t need. Muscle building foods should be made to taste great and in bulk so that you have many meals ready to go in the fridge.
