Well after some thoughtful considerations, I have decided to start bulking with AD. So far the only time I have done AD is for cutting purpose but this time around I want to gain some weight while minimizing fat accumulation. Training wise, I will be training 6x/week (OTS BBB) MODOK inspired =) I will be eating via IF style. Now I know usually people don't recommend bulking on IF and I agree with their points. I am only doing so because it fits my lifestyle perfectly and I have been doing it for nearly a year.If by any chance I feel like I need to eat more often due to the rigorous training then I will eat more, but until my body tells me that I will be keeping my 8hr meal window. Another reason is because I enjoy big meals. BIG meals...
In addition, I will be training fasted also. Been doing this for the past year as well and I find working out on empty stomach a lot more comfortable than with some substance in it. However, I do take pre-workout consiting of Xtend and also bring a bottle of that with me to sip on while working out. I find that extremely helpful and will never drop it!
Typical diet will be like this..
PWO Shake: Whey + Heavy Cream
MEAL 1: eggs, bacon, cheese
MEAL 2: meat, cheese, veggies
MEAL 3: eggs, sausage
PRE-BED: Whey + Heavy Cream
Carb source from whey + cheese alone will be enough to satisfy the 30g to keep me out of ketosis
Healthy oil will be drizzled with every meal
Diet soda will be consumed
Condiments will be from hot sauce and mustard
