Guys, I have been trying to cut down on my processed carbs as an attempt to have a cleaner diet but the result has been a drop in overall calories and therefore bodyweight. I am skinny for my height with low (sub 10%) bodyfat. Ideally I would like to pack on a few pounds (currently 80kg at 6'4" would like to be closer to 90kg) My training is BJJ, kettlebell and basic bar lifts (bench, dead, squat, press)
I am your typical hardgainer (i.e. I actually struggle to eat a lot of bulk, my body just isn't used to it)
Previously I have bulked up to 90kg but did it as a dirty bulk. Pizza and ice cream. Whilst I looked good, I didn't feel good and ended up feeling bloated and uncomfortable most of the time.
What I am looking for is suggestions of 'healthy' carbs that are not from processed sources and or other calorie dense but not too expensive ingredients that I can incorporate into my diet.
I am off shopping tonight to the groceries and am just looking for suggestions. I already have nuts, sweet potatoe and beans on my list, just looking for other people's ideas, hints and tips to keep my diet interesting.
Thanks in advance for any responses.
