View Full Version : Is my bulking diet healthy?

09-18-2005, 06:13 PM
I am extremely skinny, 5’ 11, 140 pounds I just started bulking. I try to eat around 2500 cals and 140 grams of protein. And I normally eat the same things everyday. PBJ, tuna fish, cereal, pizza, pizza rolls, scrambled eggs, noodles, burrito, 4 or 5 protein shakes a day and whatever I can afford, I normally do not have a real meal, because I don’t know how to cook…., and rarely go out to eat or eat fast food, I do get enough protein, but I think I am getting way to much fat, even though I am really skinny, just wondering if this is healthy,,. And if I will get anywhere with it, besides a big belly and a fat ass. Thanks!!!!!!

and have you gained weight eating like this?

If your eating pizza/burritos, I seriously doubt its only 2500 calories. 4-5 protein shakes alone made with nothing but 1 scoop of whey and water is 440-550 cals. Read what a body builder eats. Healthy fats are good for you, fried crap is not.

Eating "fat" is not bad for you...it's whether or not those calories (or any calories for that matter) bring you far over maintenance that decides if you get fat or not.

You may find that you feel much better if you clean up your diet, even if it isn't making you fat. You won't spend as much time seated on the porcelain throne with your ass on fire.

Learn how to cook. Start out with some basic stuff like chicken, steak, potatos, pasta, etc. Learn to make a lot at once so you'll have leftovers to eat throughout the day.
