So I am needing a bit of advice on setting up my daily requirements. Ive been training for over 2 years but have not paid nearly as much attention to dietary requirements as I should. I eat pretty clean though and always ensure my protein requirements are met daily. Heres where I currently stand:
My goal currently is to add as much lean mass as possible. I am more ectomorphic than anything and a have a fairly fast metabolism, however I can gain fat around my waist if I try to go all out on a mass gain diet.
If anyone can give me some recommendations on daily caloric intake levels for gaining mass as well as carbs and protein I would really appreciate it. With many of the people I spoke with, such as super large, bloated, “bodybuilders” at my gym they all just give me outrageous protein and calorie suggestions. Sure I’ll gain muscle on that diet, but that overall look just looks ridiculous to me. Ive done an eating plan like that a year ago and gained quite a bit of muscle but a load of bloat and fat, got up to 240lbs. Anyone can create that look, just eat tons of shit and lift heavy. This time around I would really like to have some good calorie, protein and carb requirments that would allow to gain LEAN mass this time. any advice?
