You’re not going to build much muscle if you’re not eating enough.
One great thing about low-carb eating is that it is very satiating i.e. you feel satisfied sooner than when on a low-fat diet. This is good for cutting fat but could work against you if it causes you to under-eat.
To get around this it’s a great idea to get some liquid anabolic calories.
Introducing the Monster Whey Protein Shake
On certain days when I know I haven’t ate enough due to being very busy or otherwise, I make a high-fat, high-protein shake to take care of business. This would be taken at least an hour after my Post Workout Shake.
The BIG Protein Shake Recipe
You don’t have to worry about ‘over-eating’ on a low-carb diet so this protein shake is perfect for some muscle-building calories.
Remember, eat BIG when the goal is to build muscle. If you have an ectomorphic somatype, this shake will especially serve you well!
