Hypertrophy Diet

Hypertrophy diet

If you are trying to create your first diet to gain muscle mass, seeing the structure of one you have already made can help you.

Here is an example of a diet designed for someone with a normal metabolism, around 1.80m tall and weighing 70kg.

It is organized for someone who trains in the morning, after breakfast, and who already has some training experience.

The diet aims to gain weight in the form of lean mass and reduce fat gain to a minimum.

It has six meals, three of which are rich in proteins It is carbohydrates, and the other three are high in protein and fats, but low in carbohydrates.

Carbohydrates will be used most of all around the training period, which is when they are most useful.

Don't forget that this is just a generic hypertrophy diet, and therefore, it won't work for everyone.

Just use it as an example, and make your adaptations.


  • 125g Oats
  • 30g Whey

After training

  • 30g Whey
  • 2 Bananas


  • 125g Brown Rice
  • 150g Chicken steak
  • Broccoli with olive oil


  • 2 cans of tuna
  • 40g Nuts

To have lunch

  • 150g Salmon
  • Cauliflower with a drizzle of olive oil
  • Salad with lettuce and tomato


  • Scrambled eggs with 6 egg whites and 2 yolks

Final notes

The only supplement used in this diet is a Whey protein powder.

Like all foods in this diet, Whey can also be replaced, and if you want to do so, you should put a good quality and quantity of protein source in its place.

Again, this is just a generic diet, and it's important that you adapt it to your specific situation.
