Eat More Protein 1 of 8

Being naturally skinny isn't always fun, and that's especially true once you start hitting the gym. Those with a slim body type have a lot of trouble putting on any weight, and that includes muscle. It will take dedication and a lot of hard work if you want to bulk up when you're skinny. If you think you're ready, follow these tips!

The first step is fairly simple. Your body needs protein to gain muscle mass, which means you need to eat more protein in your diet. This can come in the form of food or supplements, but food is generally better because it also gives you more calories. Some of the best protein-packed foods include:

  • Fish
  • Chicken
  • Beef
  • Milk
  • Cheese
  • Peanut Butter
