View Full Version : Too much (healthy) fat on a bulk?

09-04-2005, 04:50 PM
Hi. I remember reading somewhere (I believe it was another post on this board) that anything over say, 0.6-0.7g fat/lb of bodyweight is not good while bulking. Is there any truth to this? Letís assume that the fats come mostly from nuts and fish, and some from egg yolks.

Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

Providing you're still meeting your daily protein and calorie needs, I don't think there's a limit on the amount of (provided it's healthy) fat.

Some people use .5g/lb of bodyweight as a bare minimum. As long as you are getting enough protein, use fats to meet your calorie goals. Remember, fats are used in the production of hormones, including test.

You'll be fine.

I don't see how it can be dangerous.

As a matter of fact, you might even be healthier.

Healthy fats are good, just ask the Inuit.

This doesn't make sense to me from my own personal observations. If I need an extra 5 or 10 lbs, jacking up the healthy fat intake always gets me where I need to be on my bulk.

If it's healthy, there's no reason to be worried about getting too much of it.

Eat as much fat as you want! :D

Just make sure you're meeting your daily protein needs like the others have pointed out.
