the fuck are you people talking about. THis kid has been lifting for FOUR FUCKING MONTHS.
There is no such thing as “cut or bulk” after 4 months. You aren’t a competitive bodybuilder. You should be eating a diet rich in quailty protein. Carbs at the right time, depending on your body type and metabolism. A a broad variety of fats to maintain proper health and hormone function.
You’ll know if you are eating enough by how much weight you gain and how much stronger you are getting. If only one of the two are increasing, you are doing something wrong.
If your goal is to be 180 at 6ft you should go to a different website. But whatever.
Your bodyfat PERCENTAGE isnt high. But you dont look muscular and lean because you havent achieved the “muscular” part yet. You have to have actual muscle if you dont want the soft “regular-american” look.
Your diet is miserable. But that’s not your fault. You have plenty to learn. Making mistakes is not something to get discouraged about. 2300 calories is a joke for a 6ft tall male. Please read the stickied threads in this forum. And hopefully others will post links to posts made by people who have listed some of the foods they eat on a daily basis.
Your first order of business should be to get around 280g of protein (a bit more would be better) in your diet with more than half of it coming from whole foods. The more protein from whole foods, the better. Even if you were trying to lose some fat you’d still need over 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight. [/quote]
