    I think that article has some ok basic information but it lacks any kind of detail. Instead of saying the average person burns 1800-2200 calories a day put in something that shows how to calculate you maintenance calories. If I only ate 2700 calories a day I would not gain any weight at all. As a matter of fact I eat almost twice that any calories and I only weight 179 pounds. Also, the 2 grams of protein per pound of body weight should say 1-2 grams of protein per body of lean body mass. IE you don't need to feed your fat protein. Also, you don't mention much in the way of what exercises are good for mass. You need to add the words squats, deadlifts, cleans, bench, rows and pull ups somewhere in that article. Maybe elaborate on the progressive overload and how to properly periodize a workout. There's a few suggestions for ya, good luck with your writing.

    Your audience aren't simple, so don't write that way. There's a difference between writing simple and writing something complicated in a simple way. Hit them with some science, then elaborate on it to explain, then give an example if you need to.

    You don't need to write a thesis every day with graphs and stuff, but don't be afraid to go deep into it.

    Other than that, i agree with what ihateschoolmt said up there.

    I know the best thing i ever did with my writing was pretend i was explaining the topic at hand to a client. In person i was giving great advice that was easy to digest, but writing an article would just come out like a text book and have bugger all info in it. Get that down and its a lot better.
