I was curious if anyone had input as to what would be some good meals for a bulking diet?
I've been lifting for 5 years, I'm just coming off a break of about a year because i was rehabbing a slipped disk, and ive never really been super focused on my diet. SO im trying to learn as much as possible the second time around
feel free to correct any wrong information if i put any down, but what i have so far is...
- protein with all the aa's (egg whites, grilled chicken, whey, red meat, ect...) gives nourishment to muscles,..biggest factor in making gains
- complex carbs ( oatmeal, wheat bread, potatoes...) gives the body energy...and if i dont workout carbs = fat
- then there are "good fats" like olive oil and almonds that should be incorporated as well
Is this on point? I'd rather not throw down a bunch of money on food for a new diet plan without knowing what the hell im doing..so if you've had success with a bulking diet id appreciate some insight. im 5"10 170 (mostly flab)...ive never been above 175 during training, but i want to get to 185 in the future.at this height/weight what is a good amount of calories, protein and carbs i should be intaking daily?
