Im doing CW’s 10/10, and have been getting good progress, but my increases in BW have slowed to a halt. I have a hard time adding weight, but am thinking of ways to increase my calories enough to get to my target weight.
I started this bulk phase at around 189, and am currently about 192, but would like to be 195 at the end of next week.
I dont count calories but know I should be in the 4000-5000 calorie range, and instead I focus on nutrient timing, and eating as much as I can, as often as possilbe.
So in raising calories, Ive started by adding a good amount of carbs for breakfast.
To do this, ive added a pre-breakfast shake, of 30g Protein + 50-60g of carbs (mainly fruit or maltodextrin).
Then I have my normal breakfast which is an omlette with eggs, peppers, spinach, onions, ham, and cheese.
Also, I take in a good amount of carbs, Pre and Post workout with my shakes.
Other than that, I keep carbs a bit lower the rest of the time, and focus on protein and fat for each meal.
I think fat may be the key for me getting the amount of calories im trying to get in, but am not so sure as to how to approach this.
I READ SOMEWHERE ON HERE WHERE A COACH RECOMENDED INDIVIDUALS SIPPING ON OLIVE OIL THROUGHOUT THE DAY. HAS ANYONE EVER DONE THIS? IF SO, HOW DID IT WORK OUT?
Also, natural peanut butter, and cottage cheese mixed seem to work well, and I can take in a lot of calories in the form of cheese, but im not sure how good this is.
Anyone else have any secrets?
