(Taken from http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/muscle-building-food-stack-to-get-you-jacked.html)


Here's an article I recently took interest in- a 'food stack' meal plan for packing on pounds of muscle.
The plan uses Carbs + Protein in all its steps to optimize muscle gains.
All of the items used are actually natural and relatively healthy items that you can find at your grocery store. Here goes-



Breakfast:

3g of Protein
.5g of Carbs
0g of Fat

25g of Carbohydrates
1.5g of Fat


Lunch:
-Protein = Tuna
Nutrition Facts For 1 Cup Of Tuna In Water, Drained: 
180 Calories
39g of Protein

-Carbs  = Brown Rice
Nutrition Facts For 1 Cup Of Brown Rice, cooked:

Dinner:
Protein = Chicken
Nutrition Facts for 1 cup of Roasted Diced Chicken: 
215 Calories

Listed are several alternative meals that are also great sources of Protein/Carbs. Check out the link at the top for more info.
