He's bulking. Who cares! We'll, his arteries might.

tsungwei, are you gaining weight with this diet? If so, then it's good. If not, then it sucks.

doesn't even seem liek enough for bulking, dounds like what kids eat when they first enter college

06-03-2005, 05:03 AM
Thats a horrible diet.

Sorry but it really is

First thing I see wrong is you're eating potato chips. Seriously I know you're bulking but come on, thats just deep fried potatos (which really aren't even healthy to begin with).

Next you're only source of protien is from a suppliment. Thats not good, you need real food. Suppliments are ment to SUPPLIMENT your diet when you can't get enough normally. Next thing I have to say is that many scoops of a suppliment is probably a bad idea. I know it's just food but I think theres actually a warning on it saying not to eat a certain amount in a day unless you drink massive amounts of water or something.... I think it has to do with protien build up turning into kindey stones unless the water washes it out or something. Maybe I just read it on some website.....

Ok, but on to some serious help. It seems like when people told you what was wrong you just added more to it. Thats not what they meant. Do you count calories? If not then check out www.fitday.com . It makes counting cals easy. Also, as someone already said, get some good carbs in. Brocolli or peas or some kind of vegetable.

What the hell do you need juice and chips for?

06-03-2005, 08:21 AM
It's unbelievably bad, (well, not really but I haven't used the word "unbelievably" yet today)

It's bad!

Go and find the sticky on this site "What A Bodybuilder Eats" print off the grocery list there and LIVE IT.

You wan to put on size when you are bulking, but with that diet it will be a lot of fat, not a lot of muscle. The comments on fitday.com are right on the money too. Take in 220 grams of protein minimum and mostly complex carbs

Oh good god....I have this list printed off and didnt even see that
gg reading comprehension.

It's been my experience that anything with Fiber in it is usually a complex carb.

(also LOL@"unbelievably")

but yeah, complex carbs are just real foods like veggies. Carbs without sugars. Real foods.

Sugars are "real" foods

Additonally, complex carbs are polysaccharides, meaning many sugars.

Your experience with fiber is not exactly true. Techinically, maltodextrin is a complex carb (it's a polysaccharide...two bonded glucose molecules) and has no fiber.

06-03-2005, 07:42 PM
Well, yeah all carbs have sugars obviously but I just meant refined sugar. When I said "real" food I meant stuff you could just find in a garden.

Edit : I just saw what you said about fiber (is that what you edited in?). I just wanna say 2 things.

1)Thats not a rule of any kind, just an observation. Most things that I've ever noticed the fiber in are complex carbs.

2) I said if it has fiber it probably is a complex carb. Not if it's a complex carb it probably has fiber. You got it backwards. If you wanted to what I was saying wrong you should've given an example of a food with fiber that was not a complex carb (and it probably wouldn't be hard since fiber can be added to pretty much anything now and, as I said it wasn't a rule). Honestly I just put it up as a quick guide to hopefully help out noobies who said they couldn't tell the difference between simple and complex carbs. Something to start giving them a sense of the difference.
