I have been on a bulking diet for precisely a month. I am 5’8" (34 years old)and started weighting 159 and now after a month i weight 174(all natural). although I gained weight, I gained fat on my belly too. my waist went from 32 to 35. My diet is 45 carbs, 35protein and 20 fat.My protein is high(more than 2 grams per pound, consequently my carbs is kind of high too (more than 450 grams).
I really feel I need to decrease the calories, especially the carbs to stop the fat coming and my question is, can I do this without losing muscle, and more importantly, will I continue to gain muscle but less fat? I know everyone has a different body and the way it behaves, but generally, is this a good way to go…I am still experimenting and I will see how it goes by the end of the week.
