Wait, you have trouble gaining weight but you’re worrying about getting too much fat?
What the hell?
Sorry man, I guess it came out wrong when I typed it. I just chose to go low fat, I’m just trying it out because it seems that everywhere I go or eat there is high amounts of carbs. Last time I got my bf checked I had 11 mm in my stomach area, and I’m kind of unsure how to reduce that, everywhere else it was 5mm.
Well, my point was, you seem to want to bulk up, but you are concerned about limiting macronutrients. That is something that should mainly be reserved for cutting.
I’m not saying you have to really dirty bulk but I think that you don’t need to count calories or macronutrients very closely when bulking, especially if you are getting most from food items you know are good for you. Just have a general idea and make sure you get enough, but not too too many calories. Also get plenty of protein.
If you start having problems, fat coming on too fast, no weight gain, health problems, then adjust and tighten the diet up.
If you are going to bulk, don’t worry about your current belly condition. If you want to cut then yes keep close track of nutrients, cut down on calories till you are below maintenance, and consider a low-carb diet (depending on your need for insulin sensitivity rebooting, your preference, how your body responds to carbs, etc).
