Critique BIG BULK!!!

Hey My Fellow T-Peoplez! lolz

I’m currently at the end of the V-Diet getting ready for a bulk. But as I come off of the diet I plan to slowly return to solid food and up my calories 250 every week and adjust c/p/f till I find my LONG LOST equilibrium. Then I’ll times it by .20 and start bulking.

I’ve made up a diet that I will probably end up using depending on the amount of calories I end up bulking on. But looking at my history and my estimates I will bulk at non-w/o 2800 and w/o 3000.

So I was wondering what yall thought of my diet plan (I used Dr.LL and Dr.JB’s rules for the most part):

C/P/F
Oatmeal 1.5 cups 450 cals 81/15/15
Whey Protien 1 scoop 110 cals 2/23/1

**** End/Beginning of Meal ****
Workout half before and during other half after workout
Gatorade 4 cups 200 cals 60/0/0
Whey Protien 2 scoop 220 cals 4/46/2

**** End/Beginning of Meal ****
Oatmeal 1.5 cups 450 cals 81/15/15
Whey Protien 1 scoop 110 cals 2/23/1

**** End/Beginning of Meal ****
Chicken breast 1 breast 260 cals 0/54/3
Can Green Beans 2cans 140 cals 28/7/0

**** End/Beginning of Meal ****
Chicken breast 1 breast 260 cals 0/54/3
Can Green Beans 2cans 140 cals 28/7/0

**** End/Beginning of Meal ****
Can Tuna 1 can 170 cals 0/37/1
Almonds .25 cups 204 cals 7/7/18
Fish Oil 5 Caps 50 cals 0/0/5
FlaxSeed 2 tbsp 50 cals 3/2/5

**** End/Beginning of Meal ****
Right before bed
1-2%Fat CottageC. 1cup 164cals 6/28/2

Total: 2976 cals 302/320/71 36%/43%/21%

Stats:
Age: 19
Weight: 165
Height: 5’7"
Waist: 31.5"
BF: 10-12%

On non-w/o days I’m just going to get rid of the W/O drink. Let me know honestly what you think. I’m mainly looking for criticism on my nutrient timing and food choices. I’m open for any constructive criticism tho.

Thanks a Ton!

Good idea.

Thanks!

Looks good to me. Just don’t get greedy and jump from the V Diet to that in like 2 weeks. Stay firm and do the whole 250Cals/week, I made the mistake of not doing that before.

In the end you have to do what Berardi’s new article is all about. Try out that diet for 2 weeks. Take pictures, BF% measurements and compare them from 2 weeks eariler… Good results = Keep it up, Bad Results = Change something.

Thanks Lonnie! I am mainly worried about my mourning routine, as far as there being too many carbs pre-workout. I will be waking up and eating 1.5 cups of oatmeal (81 carbs) at 6am and then 6:45 I’ll be consuming on my workout drink (30 carbs - simple sugars). I understand big breakfast w/ carbs is good, but when you have that many, that close together are they really all going to be used? I think it was Joel Marion I read who W/O in the mourning and usually had a protien shake for breakfast then hit the weights. So yall think it’s too many carbs too quick?

Thanks!

Since when is 3000 Kcal a “Big Bulk?”
