View Full Version : Please help w/ my bulking diet

What follows is my semi-"bulking" diet; while I am looking to add mass, and while I don't mind increasing my bf, I would prefer to try and keep fat gains to a mininum.

I'm 5'7'', 133 lbs, male, and 17. Due to allergies to all milk and nut products, I've always been extremely lean; my bf % is quite low. My diet follows: are there enough fats in it? I'm told fat is necessary to regulate hormonal function (testosterone production in particular); how does one know if one does not have enough fats?

meal one: 7:00 a.m;
three egg whites
three whole eggs
one cup whole oats
one apple

meal two: 10:30 a.m.
2/3 cup oats
3 oz. can of tuna

meal three: 1:30 p.m.:
1/2 cup (measured uncooked) brown rice
tsp. olive oil
1/4 cup flax seed meal (9 g fat, 120 total cals)
30 g protein from either chicken breast or tuna steak

workout: 3:30-4:45

meal four: post-workout 5:00
52 g dextrose / maltodextrin
25 g egg protein

meal five: 6:30; generally 500-700 cals
family dinner; generally lean meats (lots of lean beef, chicken, salmon, tuna,) sweet potato or regular potato, steamed or grilled vegetables.

depending upon how large of dinner: meal six: 9:00
2/3 cup oats
whole egg
five egg whites

Any suggestions? Total calories are generally around 2700-2800, with at least 150 g complete protein protein and around 50-60 g of fat. Thanks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds pretty good; 2700+ calories/day for someone your size should make you gain weight. Something to do is; instead of eating one serving of meat at dinner or lunch. Throw some extra on your plate. It'll add up over the course of each day and you can get extra calories that way.

@ 133 lbs,I wouldn't mind very much 'bout increasing my bf.
You still can add some fat like flaxseed oil or olive oil in some meals but try not to combine high carb meals with high fat meals if you want minimum fat gain.
