ok, so at the start of my bulking cycle i was 215. Keep in mind i am 6'4 and kinda large set. I started to try bulking because I would like to bring my numbers up and develop a better physique. Now I am a former fatty of 350 pounds, but thats in another post. By bulking I mean i have added in more eggs (up to about 9 or so a day), cottage cheese (anywhere from 2-3 cups a day), sunflower seeds (1 cup + a day with raisins etc.) and 2 protein shakes a day. Its hard for me to do at the cafeteria here at rez.
Anyway I have noticed a larger amount of fat particularly in the breast area and stomach area. For lifting I was doing West side for skinny bastards and am now doing big boy basics. I am doing moderate to intense cardio 2-3 times a week. But now I way in at around 248 (about 5 months later) and have added about 2 jean sizes. I have been keeping a food journal as of late, and my avg totals are around 118.6 g fat, 4,200 callories, 327 g protein (this count protein from everything, greens, rice, oatmeal included), and 435.1 g carbs.
My problem is I don't know why I am adding this much weight this fast, and it seems to be a lot more fatty (for good sake my breasts are the size of my girlfriends) than I thought iw ould be. Is there anything I am doing wrong or should I just keep with this as I plan to do the velocity diet in the summer around 8 months after starting the bulking. Is it possible I just have a bad tolerance for carbs from being previousely fat? thanks guys.
