Ok I understand powerlifting has little do with how you look but, I do not just want to eat pizza and shit in order to get up a weight class. Right now I am sitting @ 228-232 pounds standing about 5’6" at about 16% maybe slightly higher but I am not a fat fuck by any means. I figured in order for this to happen I need to eat about 4000 calories aday. I know this seems low but, my metabolism has NEVER been very fast and can easily add weight if I am not careful. How ever I did the math but, nutrition has never been my strong point.
Figured since I am going to be shooting for 250lbs bodyweight at roughly the same leanness 15-17% I’d need about that many grams of protein. Half that in Fat so 120g and the rest in Carbohydrates equaling out to about 480g. This is what is throwing me off however. This just seems like this amount of carbs would make me a whale in a heart beat. But I can really afford to exchange much more protein in to the diet wallet speaking. Carbs are just much cheaper penny per gram speaking. But, am up for suggestions
Protein- 250g from 10 whole Eggs, 1.5 pounds of meat a day, Would like to add milk but, figure itll bloat me up insanely 1 serving whey. Rest will come from the carb sources.
Carbs- Rice, Pasta, Fruit, Corn Tortillas, and maybe a bagel here and there.
Fat- From Protein Sources and Olive Oil and Peanut Butter.
Any tips, bitches, or critiques.
I will be heavily assisted during this time period as I know 250 at 5’6" at any respectable fat level is a huge challenge. For those who care I am looking to make this jump as I feel I am going to be much more competitive at 242 espeacially in the Squat and Pull which are the only numbers I care for and even if needed to be I could do a huge water cut and make 220 as long as IVs are involved.
