Here's my semi-bulk diet. I would like to add some flax, but I'm not sure where to put it at and I need someone to tell me if I need to mix it with incase it tastes like poo. My maintenace calories are 2100. So I added 350 to make it 2450. Some flax should make it 2600, right? Also, I rotate pro/carb and pro/fat meals. Suggestions? Critique?

okay...you can take a tbsp plain first thing in the morning, and not complain abotu the taste...

or you could mix it with the oats (after they are cooked), top your broccoli with it, mix it with the cottage cheese, or mix it into your tuna salad. btw - skip the fat free mayo. it's just more sugar.

Flax = Liquid ass.

And I agree about the shake. That is ACE, especially since whey protein digests so fast. It will keep it in for awhile.

Definitaly meals 2,3 and 7 is were I would suggest you putting it at.
There's not any carb there,so it fits perfectly in.

1. You can sprinkle whole seeds on your oatmeal and it adds nice texture.

2. You can add flax oil or ground flax seeds to your shakes. Whole seeds have more fibre but if you want to absorb the omega 3 fatty acids you need to grind them up a bit or take oil.

I don't mind the taste when added to other stuff, it's kind of nutty.

That's post workout and it has no carbs?!

Approx. 40% [i do believe] of your protein will be oxidised by the liver unless you munch some carbs with that whey.

Dude you gotta have more carbs in there. I'd say go up to about 200-250 grams carbs daily. You can't expect to put on that much weight and not gain any bodyfat. Add about 50 grams carbs and a few grams fat to your post workout meal. A combination of the 3 is the best way to replenish depleted glycogen quickest. Then throw in the carbs throughout the rest of the day, and omit/limit them in your last meal.

Doesn't eating flax seeds without grinding them (i.e. sprinkled on oatmeal) give you fiber but no omega 3's? I was pretty sure that without grinding them, they are kind of useless for healthy fat supplementation.
