Iv'e been trying a new diet this training season and iv'e gotten bigger and noticed more results from it in 1 month compared to the end of my last season which was 8 months! so i thought i would share and ask what you all are taking to bulk up!!!

i'm about 160lbs right now up from 148lbs in jan. i'm 5"9 and have a 29" waist (small frame) the muscle is lookin good on me!!! :)

my goal is 175 by july 1st but at this rate i will hit it sooner!!! anyways ....here's the foods i eat to gain lean muscle mass (i don't use the bulk up fat and cut to muscle method)

ranked in order of effectiveness:

1. 100% natural peanut butter (2 tbsp per day)
2. 2% cottage cheese 2 servings per day
3. 50 grams soy protein/50 grams whey protein per day (total of 100)
4. 2 weightgain oatmeal muffins ( 15 grams soy protein per muffin , oatmeal, raisins, shredded coconut, and extra brown sugar)
5. 4 free range eggs per day
6. 4 slices 7 grain bread per day

These are what i try and have with my meals every day, i also eat tuna, chicken breasts, some pasta, and i throw in some fruits also like bananas and oranges with my shakes. I heard from a few people that soy protein is crap, but i was using all whey last season and it wasn't nearly as effective as the soy!!! i found that soy is excellent for gaining LEAN muscle mass and getting cut, but when i was taking all whey i seemed to look big but had no definition!!! could also be my workout too though.... i can get 2 kg's pure soy protien for 20 bucks here and it's 50 grams protein per scoop! i take some sort of dairy or meat product with it though ( i heard u need the amino acids in it to break down the soy protein?)

go ahead and eat tons of ice cream and see what happens. you'll bulk up and be a fat mess. people don't realize that bulking does not mean go out and eat absolutely everything and mostly crap (yes regular ice cream is crap for you). you should still try to maintain a conditioned look if you're a bodybuilder. if you're a hardgainer, than by all means mangiare. but i mean come on, these same people who go on these bulking rampages end up 2 months later askin how to get rid of the gut

tony touch your exactly right! some fats are good (eg. peanut butter) but ice cream is crap! sure u will gain weight but not the right kind and not where it counts!!! i'm so sick of this bulk up /cut down method i think it's retarted. i like to keep it simple, eat alot of good food, lift hard and lift heavy. it works wonders!!!

qea: sorry i don't have the macro on those. but i know fer sure they work! feels like a meal after having one! they are heavy! :D

actually its ok to eat some ice cream like forzen yougert. Ice cream is not a high GI carb but a medium GI carb. All dairy products are low GI carbs except ice cream.

But don't depend on ice cream as a good carb source.

too much sugar and fat combined. carbs+dietary fat=fat mess
