The following diet as recommended by Vince Gironda and used on some of his people in his gym, is not to be used as a permanent type diet, but only for a short period of time for special purposes of stimulating added muscle growth.
When I am approached in my gym by anyone who asks about gaining weight, I usually ask this question: “Do you want increased bodyweight, or is it size that you are after?” Invariably the answer is “Size”!
So let’s not confuse bodyweight with muscle growth. (How much do you think an extra inch on your arm will affect the scale?)
This diet is designed to step up muscle tissue growth – not out on bodyweight. Remember, muscle size is desirable – not bodyweight – which will only smooth out your definition and increase the size of your hips and waist and cause a loss of symmetry.
