Paleo Meal Plan to Build Muscle?

Commented on February 28, 2014

I've been paleo for about 6 months. Lost about 40 lbs; down to 190 lbs (at 6' tall) Now looking to build a bit of muscle. Im 50, feel great but find myself at a plateau in building some muscle. Has anyone had this issue? Any ideas on adjusting my paleo diet to allow for some muscle building? Appreciate the feedback

To add to the above, if you've hit a plateau and trying to add say 1-2lbs extra each week to each workout doesn't do anything, try doing an extra workout or two each week with lighter weights - this might provide the stimulus to say "we need to add more muscle because of the current demands" - this goes sort of against what Body by Science says, but it did work for me.

Workout with compound movements with the heaviest weights you can lift, and include squats... think clean and press for example.

Eat plenty of meat, at least 3 palm sized portions (don't forget egg yolks, wild caught fish, and liver a few times a week too.) Eat more carbs and protein after workouts, less on off-days.

Body by Science is a great book to use.

More meat and veggies, heavy weights, good sleep. Throw in some porterhouse cuts after a big workout at least once a week.
