So, although my post count isn’t very high, i’ve read through plenty of information regarding nutrition and diets to gain mass.
Some say they gain ludicrous amounts of clean mass is possible by bulking on the anabolic diet (low carb with carb loading days, high fat / protein) however Thib (whom i often take heed to) does not agree with the anabolic diet.
Others say that eating plenty of the right carbs at the right time (wholegrain throughout day, 75g sugar PWO) when bulking is the key to mass gains and doesnt have much risk of excessive fat gain
Good ol’ Thib posted somewhere that the ideal nutrient breakdown for mass gain is something like
- Protein: 1.75g to 2g per pound
- Fat: 0.65g to 0.85g per pound
- Carbs: less than 50g
Some old-school bodybuilders swear that bulking while in a state of ketosis is brilliant for clean mass (cant remember who i read that said this, but there are a few out there, i promise)
Arnold’s bodybuilding book says ketosis = bad, carbs = good
I’m hoping someone can post their experiences on various nutrient breakdowns and tell me which they found gave them plenty of mass gains with minimal fat gains (I am not afraid to get some fat but i want to make sure i’m getting the most muscle per pound of fat possible)
If someone complains that i didn’t post details etc etc, im 6"4, 210 pounds, 12% bodyfat (finishing my cut in 3 days) and very very hungry for a diet which is heavily supported by hopefully the vast array of posts this thread receives.
