What’s good to eat when gaining muscle mass?
I started lifting last June and didn’t have much trouble gaining for a while. I’ve gained like 30 pounds but seem to have plateaued out around 170 pounds. I know that I don’t eat well. What are some things that are good to eat when trying to gain more muscle mass other than oatmeal and egg whites?

Well, you can start by eating the entire Egg! The actual egg is the yoke: the thin liquid whites are just to keep the yoke from busting. Then you also want to start eating lots of beef, because it has zinc, iron, and it’s also high protein, which is what your body needs to make more muscle. I don’t mean that you should stock up on bologna, I mean eat hamburger meat and steaks.
Eat whole wheat bread instead of oatmeal, because it’s better for you. Spinach is high in iron as well as a good source of vitamin C and E, so make sure to eat that on a regular basis. (i.e. Salads, pizza topping.)
loads of proteins but sometime is difficult to get those in the amount necessary without get some fat too so i will use a good protein supplement
hope this helps
