  • Winter is coming, so it’s time for many of us to bulk up
  • But the art of bulking can be an expensive one!
  • So how do you increase mass without breaking the bank?
  • Here are 5 top tips to do so

1. Learn how (and where) to shop

Buying bacon in bulk

No, this is not going to be a plea to buy from Muscle Food, but we do have an awesome Early Black Friday going right now!

But seriously, you’ve got to pick and choose your places to shop. Go for the reduced aisle in a supermarket, or buy big hampers for freezing.

2. Learn to cook

Failing to cook

We have a good recipe section to help with this, but to get the most out of your food you have to learn great cooking skills.

Learn some good, wholesome recipes to give you all the macros you need! That will help you when it comes to bulking up.

3. Cook the same meals over and over

The same as with anything – if you find something you love, do it over and over again.

Find your favourite recipe and keep cooking it. Normally, variety is the spice of life. But if you want to keep track of your macros, then it’s much easier to keep track of with the same meals.

4. Cook tonight’s dinner and tomorrow’s lunch at the same time

Meal prep

Meal prep is essential, not only when it comes to bulking up, but also for eating on a budget.

This gives you both complete control over what you eat and the cost of it too. Not only are you shunning the empty nutrients of a meal deal, but you’re also keeping costs low.

5. Check your monthly expenses and keep cutting


To borrow and change a saying from Glengarry Glen Ross – A.B.C. Always Be Cutting.

Check your budget on a monthly basis and cross check with the food you buy. If anything was not used in that month, cut it out and focus on the stuff you love.

Plus, that saves your money for Black Friday and trust me – looking at what we’re offering, you’re going to want to save some cash for out Black Friday offers…
