I’m rather confused now… I’ve been eating 3-4k calories per day for around 2months and working hard in the gym making some decent noobie lift improvements. But so far no gained size as far as I can tell.
My bulk is pretty much clean but I will occasionally have a burger with friends about once a week - 2 McDonalds cheeseburgers have more protein than one Big Mac just so you know and its cheaper. I don’t have a log book which is something I’m definitely contemplating doing. I feel like I get enough protein and somedays too many carbs but I don’t mind that especially if its an off day I find on off days eating a few more carbs really helps the following day.
Anyway. Sample diet.
Breakfast: Oatmeal + pint of milk.
Snack: yogurt/milk and fruit.
Lunch: Tuna pasta.
Snack: Sandwich, either tuna, ham or chicken.
Dinner (1hour before workout): Chicken, rice and vegetables OR Steak, jacket potatos and baked beans.
Post workout: protein shake mixed with 1 pint of milk.
Snack: more milk and I’ll eat some natural peanut butter stuff I have which is full of protein. This snack isn’t everyday just if I feel hungry.
Prefast (before I go to sleep): Protein shake.
Only drinks I have are water and green tea.
To me that looks pretty sound… Right now I’m about 16% bf so I don’t think I’m eating too much because before bulking it was only around 14-16% anyway. I think I am 140lbs + now but I don’t have any scales I go mainly by measuring…
Upper arms biceps/triceps: 13"
I’ve only just recently got a bench which I’m doing 5x5 for and I’m making really good improvements there but body-wise it’s not doing anything my pecs feel more solid but apart from that nothing. This is what I’m trying to explain I eat like a gaddam horse… I do the best I can with the equipment I’ve got… I’ve cut out all cardio apart from walking around town and I’m still damn tiny…
I want to be 165lbs by May 22nd so I’ve got time to do the V-Diet before a holiday type thing I’ll be doing in June and after that I want to cut down to about 10% bodyfat I know I’ll lose some size but it’ll be a hell of an improvement from where I’m at now.
Please help me figure a good way to go about my goals what I’m doing just isn’t working.
