The Vince Delmonte Diet in the No-Nonsense Muscle Building Program is designed to help skinny hardgainers and ectomorphs gain weight and build muscle fast.
The Vince Delmonte Diet focuses on the principle that muscle mass and weight gain are due in large part to quality caloric intake and how often you eat (i.e., meal frequency). Simply put, it doesn’t matter how many hours you put in the gym, if you’re not consuming enough calories and doing it the right way, you’re going to struggle to gain muscle mass.
This is often the biggest stumbling block for the skinny hardgainer.
The Vince Delmonte Diet begins by educating you on the need for a disciplined and knowledgeable approach to your eating habits. It tells you what foods to eat and what to avoid.
Keep in mind that this isn’t a normal “diet,” so the emphasis is on a balanced diet high in protein, with balanced amounts of carbohydrates and fats.
Because gaining weight and muscle is not a one-size-fits-all process, the Vince Delmonte Diet includes a calorie calculator to help you calculate your ideal calorie intake based on weight, gender, and daily activity. This is important to give you the fundamental base from which to build muscle consistently.
On average, you’ll be consuming at least 1,000 to 1,500 extra calories per day. That might seem like a lot, but it’s broken up into 6 smaller meals per day to ensure your metabolism and energy levels stay consistent. In general, hardgainers have high metabolic rates, which means that any large gap between meals results in lower energy levels and a situation where your body looks to your muscles for energy. This slows or even stops your muscle growth, so regular meals are the key to sustained muscle growth.
Well, most people who get this far often don’t know exactly what to put in their meals. After all, preparing and planning 6 meals a day can be quite stressful and tedious, and the temptation not to do it is often overwhelming.
The Vince Delmonte Diet Program overcomes this obstacle by giving you meal plans for 84 days with 5 different calorie levels from 2,000 to 6,000. There’s also a weekly grocery list that makes meal planning a breeze and means you can focus your time and energy on more enjoyable things.
