It’s time to eat for those who have read both the Ultimate 4,000 Calorie Clean Bulking Meal Plan: Grocery List and the Ultimate 4,000 Calorie Clean Bulking Meal Plan: Prep And Pack articles. If you haven’t read these articles yet, you might be a bit lost going forward so I suggest checking them out now. You’ve turned the grocery list in part 1 into prepped and packaged meals. The only thing left to do is plan your meals to optimize growth. What do I mean by this? It’s crucial to plan your meals accordingly to when you workout.  I know they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day but in my world it’s the pre and post workout meals. Pre workout meals are going to provide energy throughout your workout and should include a good amount of protein and slow digesting carbs. Where as your post workout meal should be high in protein and fast digesting carbs for recovery and rebuilding muscle. Below is a full breakdown of my daily intake including calories for each meal, I usually workout from 6-7:30pm.
