In brief: Balanced diet

To build lean muscle mass it's necessary to combine an adequate calorie intake with a solid muscle strengthening program. While large number of calories are needed to fuel both the workouts & tissue repair & muscle building, it's important to eat the right combination of calories to encourage muscle gain.
Optimal carb to protein ratio for this effect is 4:1 (4 grams of carbs for every 1gm protein).
