Alright im 18, 190 lbs 6'1. Im about 20% bf and i am currently trying to bulk. I am using the wbb1 workout routine. My question to you is how should i be eating? I dont wanna get "fat" and have a huge stomach trying to shovel down food. I wanna gain muscle though and i realize i need to eat a lot of food especially high protein. So what should i be eating to see gains and not get a huge stomach and how much protein should i intake per day?

Most people here say 1g of protein per pound. I have seen people who do more as well. First track your normal matience cals on fitday.com, see what it ussually is, and then bump it up about 400 cals for your bulk. If your not gaining weight bump it up 200 or 300 more. Everyone is different.

I am 6ft about 172 lbs and am currently bulking as it seems most of us are. The numbers I am trying are 3000 cals...100 g fat...350 carbs...200+ g protein...so far it seems to be working well

6'1" at 190lbs and 20% bf? I'm not sure that even possible? How are you determining your bodyfat?

If you really are at 20%, then I strongly suggest a cut down to (at the VERY minimum 15% bf) before you start to bulk.

If you don't already know this, bulking will result in fat gain. Fat gain when you're already sitting at 20%bf is not cool.

Oh, and read the stickies... Your question is EXACTLY why they are there.
