How To: Clean Bulk; 30 Day Photo Journal


Hello everyone,

As some of you might know, in the past I have made a cutting photo journal on Facebook and now I want to make a bulking photo journal in this forum section. This thread will document all of my meals while I bulk back from my current state (188lbs at around 9% bodyfat). A picture is worth a thousand words, so on with the pics!

I'll be going day by day, editing my meals in as I eat them each day.

vegetables? ever?


If you're on a limited time frame, going for broke, bulking period they're just taking up space.

Use a multi and maybe a greens supp but you don't need veggies ALL the time.


If you don't see em, they aren't there :wink:


you seem to be getting a decent amount of fiber without the veggies between the oats, bananas, ezekiel break, and nuts.


Good luck with that


You seem to be making good progress with your methods as they are.

Carry on with your way man.

(Maybe link to your RMP thread so I don't look like a retart? :wink:)


Been having good luck so far :wink:


What do you mean by RMP? I agree with you. It works well for me. One can always improve on their weaknesses, but if you're getting things 90% right, the method is going to net you some solid progress.


Your RMP thread = http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/pictures_pics_photo_body_rate_image_performance/my_10_week_cut_w_weekly_progression_photos


Your thread in the RMP (Rate My Physique) forum.


Does anyone seriously know how to embed pics on this site?


Click Advanced Replay, and next to Attach Image click browse.


Vegetables are extremely good for you, and it is extremely easy to fit them into a 3700 calorie diet especially when it includes dense food sources like pizza and footlongs. That's a lame excuse.

That being said, for physique goals they aren't required, so I actually partially agree with you.


Pfft, only 4 slices? You sure you're not on a cut brah? :slightly_smiling:

Seriously though, cool thread, enjoying the food log w/ pictures.


OMG that pizza looks good.

I'M cutting and still would have had more than 4 :slight_smile:


I'm talking about linking from a site like Photobucket. Is that possible?
