Bulking Advice?

I just started bulking, i’m 155 pounds at 5’8. If you have any feedback on my bulking plan let me know. I’m doing Intermittent fastingfor about 16 hours a day, been doing some form of it my entire life.

500 gram sausage, 150 g avocado

Lunch: 4 tbsp chia seeds, 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 scoops whey protein.

Post workout: 3 bananas, 2 scoops whey protein, 1L juice

Dinner: 100 g rice, 150 g pasta.

In total about 4000 calories. Does this diet look good for strenght and size gains?

Probably a bit low on fibre… try adding some veggies.

Also, where does the 16 hours of fasting fit in?

Between 8pm and 12 am

This is not 4000 calories. Try again.


Something is not right, maybe it’s the AM/PM. 8pm-12am is 4 hours a day?

I put it all into cronometer and came out with

4025 calories

Pretty sure he means from 8 pm to noon the next day.

If you have a very fast metabolism then 4000 calories might be appropriate. I have one thats middle ground so I don’t have experience with a fast metabolism, but for your body weight and height, 4000 calories seems waaay too high unless you want to gain a lot of fat with that muscle and 4000 calories is a lot of food. I am about your height and weigh 174lbs. I am bulking and eat 2614/day and I have been gaining 0.5-1lb/week, which is what most people shoot for.
