Bulking Advice?


#1

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.

Breakfast:
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?


#2

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

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


#3

Between 8pm and 12 am


#4

This is not 4000 calories. Try again.


#5

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


#6

I put it all into cronometer and came out with

4025 calories
182
315
212

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.
