View Full Version : I've decided to go all natural

After changing my mind and not seeing much results in the gym for the last 3-4 years, I've decided to start fresh and just eat like a b*tch and lift/run.

I figure to keep my foods mostly dry, except for eggs and drink plenty of water and this time I will try to get at least 8 hours sleep a night, even if I have to stop watching T.V, I plan on doing this.

I've been getting about 4-5 hours a night and I wake up very miserable and cranky.

Just make sure you are getting in adequate protein and EFAs. Get in 1g of protein per lb. of bw and about 25-30% of cals from fat (mostly healthy sources). Fill in the rest of your daily cals with carbs. I would increase calories in small increments each week until you are gaining about .5-1lb. per week. Just eating large amounts of food might help you gain LBM but can also add significant bf if you eat too many cals over maintenance. Gaining weight at a slow rate will help minimize the amount of bf that you gain.
