As a female, you’re going to build muscle at about the rate of half of what a male would. This is due to the fact that you simply don’t have the levels of testosterone in your body that’s necessary to produce significant amounts of muscle mass.

But, this isn’t to say you can’t be successful. With the right program in place you can see gains of 1-2 pounds of lean muscle per month with some hard work and dedication.

Getting your diet in line is half of the equation for results. The following diet is going to help to provide the nutrients your body needs to generate more muscle without adding any unnecessary body fat.

Since we know you want to stay lean while adding some additional curves to your body, this plan will help you accomplish that goal perfectly.
