I wanted to post here as I feel that the people who frequent the beginner forum generally don’t flame like the other forums and also you guys have given me great advice in the past.
I started at 126lbs and in the last ten months have grown to 165lbs ( i was underweight therefore my newbie gains were radical). I have been told that once you feel you have a base that gains should be about 1lb a week, i’m still piling on 2lbs a week. I understand that weight as well as muscle is part of the bulking principle but i’m beginning to look like a pot belly pig and no i’m not scared of fat it’s just too big for my frame, people consistently joke that i’m pregnant.
Could you assess my diet and tell me whether i should change anything whilst still maintaining my bulk, because frankly 165lbs is still puny.
6.30am Protein shake mixed with full fat milk and Flake seed oil
8.30am Multigrain cereal and semi-skimmed milk
11am tuna or chicken pasta
1pm Protein shake
2.30pm 25g of peanuts or 75g of cashews and banana
3.30pm Glass of semi skimmed milk
6.30pm Large piece of meat, potato and veg
8pm piece of fruit
10pm Protein shake mixed with full fat milk and Flake seed oil
well thats it. If by the remotest chance this is ok should I continue and wait for my body to adjust ie As I get bigger keep the same intake thereby my body needing more calories and eventually raiding the fat storage that is my belly.
i appreciate any advice
