Hey there

id say for the past few months ive stoped gaining muscle, o by the way im doing a slow clean bulk, hoping to gain about 0.5lb a week ( whats the rush haha ) so i deceided to track my calories carbs and protein etc for a couple of days, weiging all my food, and it turns out on average i consume around 2500 cals day. so i figure this is my maintinace, as i havnt realy gained or lost any weight for quite a while. so i decided to up my colrie intake by 500 to 3,000 a day could you guys give these details a check, this is what i have eaten today any advice would be great. remember i want to do a slow clean bulk like isaid i aint in no hurry. do you think i am getting to many/less carbs and same for fat/protein?

i weigh 180 pounds and 16%bf 5"10.5

cheers ;)

It's really hard for us to make any general assertations on how clean or solid your diet is based on what you've told us... But as a general rule, if you've plateaued based on your current calorie count, it's probably a good time to pack in more food :D

Way to go for critical thinking! Keep up the good work.

And i may be WAY out of line here, but at your weight with your bf%, 2500 is not nearly a bulk... Either you've been making newbie gains or been getting anecdotally "bigger" via the cutting phenomenon of looking bigger even though you've actually lost weight.

To be more specific, sometimes people look bigger after a cut, even though they actually got smaller.
