Eat Your Damn Breakfast
Busy dudes tend to skip breakfast just because they don’t have time. Grab a cup of coffee and maybe a banana – more like a chocolate chip cookie, right? – and get out the door. When you’re trying to build serious muscle, this isn’t going to work for you.
You need breakfast to get your body going in the morning. You don’t have to become fucking Wolfgang Puck every morning, but you do need to put something in your body. For most dudes, ten minutes in the kitchen is all it will take.
What should you eat? Eggs are ideal because they’re packed with protein to build lean muscle and increase gains. Lean meats like leftover chicken from the night before can also be great on the go.
Cantaloupe, which is a fast-digesting carb, as well as cottage cheese, which has a lot of protein and will help you feel full until lunch, are both excellent choices. You can even prepare this mixture in a bowl the night before and leave it in the refrigerator.
Whole milk and a healthy whole grain cereal – not that Count Chocula shit – can also work in a pinch.
