If you want to be bigger AND leaner, you may just want to drop all that “size” you put on and start from scrap. I don’t mean any offense at all by this post BTW. Do you have any pics of what you looked like before this endeavor? I would not have guessed that you were bulking had I seen you, just that you were overweight.[/quote]
Yup, I know…I think the problem with the fat gain began around month 3, when I started taking a very high calorie/carb shake post workout…as opposed to the one I had been taking up til then…which was fairly low carb and I’ve just kind of ignored it (Telling myself it came with the whole bulking up process and I’d need to suck it up, as this is the fattest I’ve ever been).
Any suggestions on dieting would be appreciated too.
Right now a Training day looks like.
Get up at 5
Shake consisting of Almond milk, almonds, nut butter, 2 scoops of low carb protein (240 calories), flax, creatine and spinach
5 Eggs (either an omelet or soft boiled)
4 cups of veggies
Palm of lean meat
lt of water, 4 cups of veggies, 50 g of protein in chicken (Measured out on a scale)
Shake consisting of Almond milk, almonds, nut butter, 2 scoops of high carb protein (640 calories), flax, berries and spinach
4 cups of broccoli/cauliflower and a lean meat (50 g of protein)
Pre Bed: Casein protein and water
Pretty simple diet really as I find if I make it too complicated…I screw things up
I was debating adding hill sprints in, as I agree…I am feeling fucking fat, but again…I just kept telling myself that if I wanted to be bigger then the fat gain was a necessary evil, I go a little far with the fat gain?
Yea man, a lot of people tend to go off the deep end with “bulking” lol.
You obviously aren’t taking in many carbs, so I would just drop 500 overall calories man and start trying to drop the fat. Simple and effective. And I wouldn’t be overly concerned with losing muscle bc you have plenty of bf to spare…my 2 cents.
