Instead of wasting time on fitday and on here making threads, start using the search function.
Also, 5’11" at 175lbs and “16-20% bodyfat”? Let’s see a pic of that. If you seriously have that little muscle, you should focus on that first. And this is coming from another beginner currently bulking–I’m not giving training advice, but seriously…there have been about 1,000 threads made exactly like this one, and they’re all equally stupid.
And you’re 20 years old. Stop pissing away money on supps and start learning about nutrition and discipline. Supps help those who already have the other pieces in place. You clearly don’t know anything about getting those pieces together. Again–use the search function.
As far as your diet–it’s pretty much a mess.
You’re perpetually keeping yourself in starvation mode.
You eat no vegetables.
10% of your daily calories come from corn chips.
While I appreciate your attempt, your blatant disregard for real tangible knowledge is kind of giving me a sour vibe
A) There is little to no evidence to suggest starvation mode is caused by a slight deficit in calories
B) Corn chips are the ONLY thing in my diet that cannot be considered ‘clean’ (and I only eat them because I don’t want them to go stale)
C) Clearly you didn’t look at my post. On Friday, no vegetables, on Saturday??? Vegetables. I just picked some up, relax sparky.
D) I have 16" biceps, pumped, I have a 1rm of squat of 295, I am fairly satisfied with my muscularity at this point (considering I started at 220lbs with 13" biceps pumped), and I train Mixed Martial Arts and want to compete in a lower weight class, is that a problem with you? buffnoob?
E) Pissing money away on supplements? Ok, sure, I’ll just stop… spending money on HOT-ROX…and protein powder? Damn, all that money… just wasted! (FYI I’ve lost a total of 50 pounds, bulked up a total of 20, then lost 20 more, losing zero strength along the way, with no regard to diet, now I’m changing that)
F) The search function is essentially useless since diet is very subjective… finances, height, weight, training regiment… etc. ALL vary.
As for the GOOD advice from HLSS
Thanks. I know I’ve been low on fats and calories, so I picked up some natural peanut butter last night and ate my way up to 2800cals. I went comatose but I woke up feeling a bit more refreshed than normal, not to mention I like having a delicious snack.
Ended up at 130g of fat for the day, and they were all from good sources (excluding chips)
Feels good, man
P.S. I’m 21
