I will adjust the daily cals when the weeks pass so i have a steady and constant weight gain with minimum fat gain.

Critics welcome.

Things everyone will/should tell you: calories and protein are too low

In addition, I personally feel the fat is far too low and the carbs are way too high, but everyone will have their own opinion on this.

Im gaining weight very quick so i'ill start out with this amount of calories (3000).

Its a 40/40/20 split so there's not too much carbs and enough proteins in it no ?

Forget calorie ratios, they're not important at all. First comes protein, then your fats (especially EFA's), and then you get the balance of your calories from carbs. On a cycle you'd probably want to aim for at least 2g protein/lb bodyweight, and a MINIMUM of 100g fat. Do the calculations and this means you're already at 3000 calories. If you want to include carbs then you're going to have to increase your calories...period.

Exactly.

Steroids increase protein synthesis, so do the math. On cycle+more protein=bigger

I personally feel your calories are low, but if you're gaining at a decent rate I don't see much point in adding more.

He was telling you why you should be increasing your protein intake. It wasn't a suggestion, but it was a valid point.

Thanks Vido.

As stated in my FIRST post, your fat is low. Call me crazy, but that seems like a suggestion to me. :bang:

Sorry about that Jasonl , i overlooked the first post.

Gonna up the fat intake with some more olive oil(or some nuts) and throw in some low fat cheese , that adds to my fat and proteine totals (and overal calories also).

I'd up the protein to 1.5-2 grs per pound of BW. It's more important than fat intake, EFA's aside.

You're getting there, but you're being stubborn about the carbs. Given your calorie level (and I'd say the same until you hit about 4000+ calories) you have very little room in that diet for carbs, nevermind 300g of them.

Adding olive oil is a good idea...that will get your fat total up. Now, you need to add more protein (be it from whole food or shakes, whatever gets that total up).

If you even think about using the excuse that protein is more expensive than carbs and you're on a tight budget, just stop in your tracks because you shouldn't be spending your money on gear then.
