I shall believe you’re really not a troll but just very simple minded.
The idea of starving yourself to bulk later is outrageously stupid.
Your remarks about the machinist show that you are a very immature person. There are lots of fat celebrities of the past who died because back then ocassional starving for a role was typical.
Starving is really bad stress. Bulking coupled with hard training is also bad stress.
Combined it’s like a stress superset, even more stressful for the inner organs. Your heart, liver, kidneys and whole digestive tract will ache.
Heed laroyal’s advice on how to shop with a small budget. Train smart, regularly and progressive for the next years and establish a solid base with ~12% bodyfat.
If you have decent numbers with a consistent decent body composition, go for the bulk.
p.s. I hope you know you etched yourself in TNation stupid history forever.
But do I ‘cut’ then? What to do? I tried just ‘eating clean’ but I look teh same for so long.
I really feel like I am stuck. I had less bf before starting weightlifting when I was just eating the candy.
Should I try and stay at specofic weight (like… 210lb) but just get the stronger at this weight?
If I bulk I just get obese… if I ‘cut’ down to christian bale then I can bulk properly.
What angers me is that I read ‘just eat and lift’ but what is that suppose to mean? I understand for peoples who started at 150lb and then “eat all and lift the weight”, but I am not in that position.
I seem to be fat AND too little muscle. Does anyone have Any ideas on what to do? I also have the 40" inch waist-
Thanks for any help guys. I mean it.[/quote]
You are confusing this by placing your own personal issues into the picture without understanding the basic concept.
If you are carrying too much body fat then you diet down. You don’t starve yourself for the reasons listed above. Holding onto muscle tissue isn’t just done because of aesthetics. It is done to maintain your metabolism.
You hear different responses because not everyone at “20%” body fat needs to jump on a crash diet. If they are all of 150lbs, gaining some actual muscle tissue would help them far more than dieting down to a skeletal 120lbs before they ever gain any weight.
