When you’re trying to build a better body, your actions outside the gym matter just as much as the all the clanging, heaving and pumping that goes on in the weight room. What you do in the kitchen, in particular, plays a huge part in your progress.
Whether you’re new to the game or fell off a healthy track, this starter meal plan is a clean approach to eating that will help support your muscle-building efforts. Rather than measuring and counting, keep it simple and focus on making the right food choices and eating five to six meals a day.
