View Full Version : caloric split

07-28-2002, 11:18 PM
I am currently bulking, eating 3500cals a day, sometimes 3000 on non workout days. i'm doing 40carbs/30fat/30protein. But 30% of 3500cals, is 262g protein! i never end up eating that much, that's way hard. 262g protein is way too much isn't it?

What I want to know is: is there a better caloric split than this better suited to bulking?

i'm 5 foot 9 and weigh 73kg (160#'s)

That is a link to a thread I have. As that stands it isn't much food (only about 2,500 calories) and not enough carbs, but it is a good 225g of protein. If I were to drink a second protein shake (which I usually do just not on that day), that adds up to 275g.

It's not much protein if you center your meals around quality foods that contain large amounts of protein, and supplement shakes/bars to fill the gaps. Also notice how the protein in the attached diet is from good sources (meat, milk, eggs, whey) and doesn't include plant protein such as wheat.
