This 12 week meal plan is designed for the individual interested in gaining good quality weight. It is a progressive increase in calories over the 12 weeks from approximately 2750 calories to 3650 calories. I realize it can be very challenging for some athletes to increase size and strength. This nutrition plan will assist in bridging that gap. Parents, you can be assured that all foods and supplements (weight gain powders and energy bars) prescribed on this plan are safe for children of all ages (teenagers, pre teens, etc.). This meal plan in conjunction with a sound training program can be a winning combination!
