When you are looking to gain lean muscle or lose weight, eating a high protein diet is very important and squeezing those meals into a busy schedule is quit challenging. On my journey to gain lean muscle and weight management, I have developed a quit meal that is high in protein and packed with carbohydrates (carbs) to keep you fueled throughout the day.
Since I love fish and I need two easy meals at work, I eat fish and rice or broccoli at least twice while I am at work from Monday through Friday. I eat two pieces of salmon or tilapia with brown rice or broccoli on my first break, then another meal on my lunch break. These meals are great for me because each piece of fish has at least 21 grams of protein plus the brown rice or broccoli. When you calculate it, you are getting at least 50 grams of protein per meal. After work and during the weekends, I usually eat what I want to make my diet fun and not stressful.
If you don’t like fish or you get tired of it, you can substitute it with a chicken breast, which contains about 43 grams of protein per cup. You can also alternate your sides with a baked potato or a slice of wheat bread for carbs.
The good thing about these two meals is that they are quick and easy to prepare. They are also high in protein and delicious at the same time. With two protein shakes, you could easily have four meals per day and not be stressed about it. When you add a simple exercise routine with these meals, you will be able to maintain your weight while gaining lean muscle as well.
I have been on my diet and exercise plan for about two months now and I have already gained about 10 pounds of lean muscle. I also feel better and I have more energy at work.
For anyone who has a busy work schedule and cannot find the time to cook healthy meals, this easy fish diet will be a great start to maintaining a healthy weight and gaining lean muscle.
