Don't anticipate too much right from the beginning and give your body time if you are just starting. Maintaining the right mindset helps a lot. In fact, your body has its own unique body composition. So you know it the best. Just be consistent, patient, and stay motivated by seeking inspiration from the inspiring people out there.

Don’t be protein-centric


Even though we assume muscle gain is all about protein, one just needs 10-15% of the protein in their daily calories. So it is not like going vegan will get your body no protein at all. In fact, plant-based protein foods like lentils and legumes can get you far.

Focus on healthy food

Eat more and eat healthy

Muscle growth necessitates a caloric plethora, so it is crucial to eat right and eat/ supplement the appropriate amount of protein! Hence, it is essential to make smart food choices and opt for calorically compact sources if you fail to consume large servings. Besides, let some time pass between your meal or snack and working out and keep drinking plenty of water throughout the day.

Exercise smartly
