I know some of you have read my post over in the Training forum. So I got votes to bulk. I am going 300 calories over my AMR. I tried to follow a 40/30/30 ratio to the best of my ability, and this is what I came up with:

I don't have a mad metabolic rate like you man. :)

But what do you suggest I add there?

#1 Breakfast - 7:00a

1 1/2 Cup Oatmeal - 450 Calories, 9g Fat, 81g Carbohydrates, 15g Protein

Calories: 560
Fat: 10.5g

Add another scoop of whey, although you have 37g of protein in there, only 22 of it is complete. Add a tablespoon of EFA.

#2 AM Snack - 10:30a

2 Whole Eggs - 140 Calories, 9g Fat, 2g Carbohydrates, 12g Protein
2 Slices Whole Wheat Bread - 140 Calories, 2g Fat, 22g Carbohydrates, 8g Protein

Calories: 280
Fat: 11g
Carbs: 24g
Protein: 20g

More food here. Add a bagel to get the carbs up above 70g. Add another whole egg and a few whites to get the protein up to 40g or so.

#3 Lunch - 12:00p

2 Slices Whole Wheat Bread - 140 Calories, 2g Fat, 22g Carbohydrates, 8g Protein
1 Can Albacore Tuna - 175 Calories, 2.5g Fat, 0g Carbohydrates, 37.5g Protein

Calories: 475

Add some more carbs, up to 70g here too. Add a tablespoon of EFA.

#4 PM Snack - 3:00p

1 Cup Oatmeal - 300 Calories, 6g Fat, 54g Carbohydrates, 10g Protein
2 Tbsp. Natural PB - 200 Calories, 16g Fat, 7g Carbohydrates, 7g Protein

ADD PROTEIN. 30g of complete protein (meat products) each meal, mimimum!

#5 Dinner - 5:00p

4 Oz. Extra Lean Ground Beef - 264 Calories, 19.3g Fat, 0g Carbohydrates, 21g Protein
2 Slices Whole Wheat Bread - 140 Calories, 2g Fat, 22g Carbohydrates, 8g Protein
1 Cup Kidney Beans - 220 Calories, 1g Fat, 40g Carbohydrates, 14g Protein

Calories: 624
Fat: 22.3g
Carbs: 62g
Protein: 43g

This one is great.

#6 Post Lift, Bed Time

Isopure MRP - 300 Calories, 0g Fat, 25g Carbohydrates, 50g Protein
Phosphagen HP - 140 Calories, 0g Fat, 33g Carbohydrates, 0g Protein

Add 1-2 tablespoons of EFA. Add 20-30g of complex carbs.

Just some additional things, add a multivitamin and a calcium supplement, since you don't have any dairy in your diet.

You'd better train like a mofo, Yaz. That's some serious food. ;)

Switch breakfast and meal 2. You want a good amount of real food as soon as you wake up...save the whey bull**** for meal 2. AND, IMO 3.5 hrs is too long in between meals. I like to go with 2.5

LOL @ belial calling that "some serious food".


Is it any coincidence, that people that eat little amounts of food, have little amounts of muscle?

Talkign fat in the post training meal is not always a good idea(slows absorbtion), but if it's your bedtime meal then fair enough.

Zat a diss, beercan? ;)

I eat around 3500 cals a day; my diet's pretty similar (less mayo and bagels, more oatmeal, tho). i just meant "serious" as in that's not a half-assed meal plan by any means, and considering this is a first bulking cycle, it'll be a bit of a shock. Yaz, prepare to grow like a weed. :D

Yaz
04-19-2001, 03:27 PM
I was wondering about the EFA in the last meal too, myself.

And that is some real serious food. Especially for me. I didn't even used to eat half that much. Grocery shopping this week is going to be focking hell. :p

Though I can get 16 oz. 85% Lean Ground Beef for about $1.20. I will be eating about 8 oz per day, so... erhm, that's about $5-6 on red meat per week. Not too shabby. Tuna is the most expensive thing for me.

Gotta love Aldi's.

Tuna! Expensive! Are you for real!

I can get 1 tin (200g) for 0.25!

That's like 60 cents i think!

Yaz

The chunk light or whatever is cheaper than the Albacore, which I prefer. Albacore is like $0.99/can at the cheapest store around here. And as far as time goes on the eating schedule, that is according to:

Wake up
AM Break At Work
Lunch
PM Break At Work
Return Home, Dinner
After Training

... Not a whole lot I can do about the time frame. :(

Yaz

I just noticed something. I have close to 30g saturated fat every day in my bulking diet.

Is that healthy?

Alex.V
04-19-2001, 09:17 PM
Wouldn't sweat it. They say no more than 20 grams a day. That's for a normal human on a 2000 calorie diet.

*adopts best imposing voice*

WE ARE NOT NORMAL HUMANS.

:D

With any sorta red meat in your diet, and eating over 3000 cals a day, it would be hard not to have that much. Chances are, a lot of sedentary americans eat twice that in a day.

Yaz

Look at a lot of sedentary americans, too. Ugh. :p
