Do read on if you are serious on gaining weight like never before!

At the age of 18 years old in college, I started to pay a lot of attention to my form because i wanted more female attention, I also wanted to look cooler at the beach with a body that i could be proud and not feel lousy when i stood with my friends who were more muscular. This affected the way I looked and also the way I felt about myself. I was Sick and tired of it and to make a change.

I tried spending countless hours each day reading fitness magazines, fitness books reading tips on the internet on how to put on weight, interacting with body builders in the forum to get my questions answer but that did not really help me in my weight gain. In addition, my brain was so filled with so many facts and contradicting tips from body builders that I just did not know what or who to listen to. It was there and then that I almost gave up on gaining weight and throw myself to this “destiny” that I was meant to be skinny

On one of my outings with my former classmate, I got a total shock when my classmate who was skinny like me turned into this buff guy which I almost did not recognize. He then introduced to me to a system of training called Vince Del Monte Training system. Curious about the product I went on to take a look. I had mixed feelings when I entered the site after I purchased it because I have had so many experiences approaching such websites and magazines and was hesitant when I looked through the page; some of the benefits and bad points I could list out was the following.

Below is also the video which i made to show you the navigation of the website as well.

Benefits

Forum memberships were a great deal for me because I was able to obtain moral support, share tips and advice and get my questions quickly answered by both members as well as trainers which were present there.

2. Men and Woman Support

Vince Del Monte’s Training System was catered to both genders which mean that both females and males can use it. In addition, Vince Del Monte’s Training System has the same kind of support and knowledge for both genders.

Bad Points

1. Hard work and determination

Building muscles is no joke and takes a lot of dedication and hard work, if you are looking for a quick miracle solution this is not the right e-book for you. This e-book is really about building muscles that will last and not have any side effects like taking steroids and pills. I found that out myself when I could only see visible changes in about 2 weeks. It really is no pain no gain situation but it really builds your body which is the real thing.

Final Verdict This was the general feel of the e-book after I purchased it, and I hoped that you really enjoyed that short list of the content that it delivers. The techniques, tips and secrets I have learnt from this system is the most unique and engaging one that I have come across and I believe you will not need another program after getting this. Click here to read more about gaining weight on their website and you will understand how beneficial this system can be to help you gain weight quickly, I really believe that Vince Del Monte really over delivered on the e-book with the price I paid and it was worth every single penny I had( I don’t have many). His methods are not only effective but also relatively quick. As of today I am already on my 10th week and I have gained 26lbs so far. This additional weight has boosted my self esteem and I really feel confident going out now with shorts. I also perform much better in my role as a defender because I have much more power and stamina and size because of my fast weight gain.

Formulating your Nutrition program


Understand your Body

1.)    Before you start your weight gain regime, it is always important to plan out a nutrition guide that you can use during the duration of your regime. You must always figure out first the type of body you have. For more information, do download the free guide that is available in the home page. If you are an endomorph, you will have to cut down on your carbohydrates and work more on a protein based meal. This will ensure that you can lose fat easily when accompanied with a high cardiovascular activity such as running, jogging or swimming. If you are a mesomorph, gaining muscle is very natural for your body so having a balanced meal can really maximise your muscle gain. Lastly, if you are a ectomorph, you have to ensure that you eat lots of carbohydrates as well as protein in order to gain substantial weight. You should always ensure that you eat small meals each time but in a shorter interval that you usually would. This means a small meal every 2 hours in order to maximise your gains. Any longer than 3 hours between each meal and your body will start thinking it is starving and start feeding on muscle mass. This is not what you want to achieve.

Having a balanced Meal

2.)    Every Meal should contain carbohydrates, protein and unsaturated fats in the ratio that is suitable for you. Whether you are an ectomorph, endomorph or a mesomorph. Most of all, protein is one of the most important component and should not be left out.  Let’s just put it this way, if you eat only carbohydrates and not protein, you will not be able to put on any muscle mass but rather just fats. In addition, your energy levels will be at rock bottom after 1-2 hours. Or to put it in another way, if you only eat protein, your body will not be able to convert the protein into muscles because your body requires carbohydrates accompanied with protein in order to absorb the protein and convert it into muscles.

Lose The Bad Fats And Gaining Good Fats

Most people begin their weight lost and muscle building program by calculating the amount of fats that they must lose, however, did you know this is a huge mistake that can really slow down your process from your muscle building goals.

Types of fats

Before you begin your weight lost program, you need to understand the different types of fats that is available and which of it to eat and which to avoid.

How much do I need to eat?

Building the perfect beach body requires a healthy balanced meal. 40% of your meal substance should consist of protein, 50% calories and the remaining 10% unsaturated fats. You can normally obtain unsaturated fats from your meals by following these simple tips:

  • adding a table spoon of olive oil into your cooking or into your cooked meals.( not needed if eating meats such as fish which already has a high good fat content)
  • Adding a few slices of raw avocados into your meal (it’s really tasty!)
  • Fish oil capsules during the day after your meals or at the start of the day
  • Instead of snacking on potato chips or sweets. Munch on almonds or macadamia nuts.
  • Eating salads with the combination of nuts as well as olive oil (considered as a meal)

Adding exercise to your weight lost regime
