How to Gain Mass Fast Without Putting on Fat

The biggest fear when trying to gain mass fast and add muscle size is that the process used to reach those goals will also make you fat. It’s a real concern. But, you should first realize that it is impossible to only put on muscle. If you have a calorie surplus, which is required for putting on muscle, you will also inevitably put on a little fat.
Don’t feel down. Answer this question: Would you mind putting on a little fat for a lot fast mass gain? Well, that answer to that is the key for fixing your mentality when it comes to gaining weight and fat. Your goal should be to maximize muscle gains while minimizing fat gains. If you train properly and follow a clean diet that is exactly what you should attempt to achieve.

Get Stronger

More strength means more muscle. Muscle burns more calories than fat. If you train to build muscle, you’ll burn more calories which eventually will make it easier to reach a lower body fat percentage. That’s why everyone advocates training for strength. Keep strength as your primary goal and everything else will fall in place.

Clean Dieting

Learn your macronutrients. Eating enough to gain weight is one thing. But, eating enough food to gain GOOD muscle mass fast is another thing. You need to know how much of each macronutrient your body needs. Eating the right ratios of macronutrients will limit how many calories get stored as fat.

Eating clean also means no junk food or eating out. Limit your cheat meals to once or twice a week.

Set Reasonable Goals

Set reasonable and attainable goals. Like I said before, putting on fat is inevitable when you are trying to quickly gain mass. Not all of your gains can be muscle. But, your goal should be to limit fat gains while maximizing muscle gains. If you gain 10 lbs, but only 3 lbs of that are fat, I would call that a success.

Everyone always wants the impossible. Don’t let that get you distracted from your ultimate goal. Gaining a little bit of fat in order to gain a lot of muscle is a good trade off. Just spend a few weeks after your weight gain running and restricting your calories in order to burn that fat back off.
