Hey all, I’m 15, I’d rate my metab slow to normal. I’d like to gain mass, Will be doing rippetoes with minor modifications (dips, and widegrip pullups) I’m currently trying out the anabolic diet.
I don’t want to gain and obsessive amount of fat while bulking and I understand because of that I wont gain an enourmous amount of muscle mass in a shorter amount of time.
My past diet was 900 calories a day, major cutting, I figure I should raise it to roughly 3000 with bulking. now because I’m on the anabolic diet and i nthe introductory phase the breakdown would have to be 60% fat, 35% prot and 5% carbs (30 grams)
I’d like to do this the “cleanest” way possible (minimal cholesterol and sat fat with an increase of EFA’s so I don’t drop dead of clogged arteries in 10 years) My weight is 132 lbs so I should be taking anywhere from 132-264 grams of protein a day. so lets say I take in the latter, that would put me at 1056 calories a day from protein, so 3000 - 1056 == 1944.
30 grams of carbs would be 120 calories, so that leaves 1824 for fat. I can afford Grow! or Metabolic Drive so protein powders and the such are no problem for me.
I usually snack on sugar free jello. does 3000 calories seem a little much for 132 lb 15 year old bulking wise? It would be no problem to cut it down to 2500. All input and plans appreciated.
