145.4 g fats, 233.9g carbs, and 312.8g protein… I’m on what I thought was a bulk diet, any suggestions as to what i should pump and what I should dump?
P.S. I’m a hardgainer.
I’ve been making decent gains but I feel like I’m doing something wrong. Gaining a bit of unwanted fat and not gaining as fast as I think I should.
that’s a lot of protein. i am not saying it will kill you but it’s quite a bit beyond the 1g/lb; to get that you must be downing a lot of shakes? (except for the post workout of course) i would do more food and less shakes.
assuming you are lifting hard and smart – i assume most are guilty until proven innocent but let’s just assume – Waterbury writes about fast acting protein (30g whey) and carbs (eg 1 banana) 20-30 minutes before lifting to trigger an insulin release (i guess us regular guys can end up fat this way but if you are truly a hardgainer) to push nutrients into the muscles while training.
and “supercharging” with BCAA’s is worth considering. at your size it would be very expensive since you need >10g (Poliquin would say at least 20g at your weight, or don’t bother) but if your wallet is fat you could trial these for 4+ weeks.
as others have said, let the ego go when it comes to fat gain concerns if you want to pack on the meat.
I take about 14g of BCAAs on most workout days. ~7g before and ~7g after. I use Animal Nitro (yes flame me for using non-Biotest products)
and it seems like people are taking this thread all wrong. I’m just wondering about making adjustments towards my diet. The side notes were just to help yall evaluate my position. I’m not trying to cry about how im too fat and losing my six pack and bla bla bla. What I’m doing is working, to a degree. I’m just looking for a more intelligent opinion towards my diet plan, seeing as I’m mostly ignorant when it comes to the whole diet science thing.
and I’m not looking for someone to tell me EAT BIG 2 GET BIG. If I wanted to know that I would go read muscle and fitness or something.
