    Fat Ectomorph

    So, I have been bulking since September, and my weight has gone from 124 lbs to just under 160. My muscle gains have been great... however, I have grown a big gut/butt.
    I followed the basic rules of eat heavy/lift heavy/sleep heavy. I am pleased with all of my progress but the gut, in fact, it is the only part of me that really looks fat, making a kind of skinny fat look. Hahaha.

    Anyhow, I want to continue bulking, but cleaner. Is there a way to do this without growing the gut more? Also, is there a way of making my midsection smaller, without taking away the fat from everything else (face etc). I'll include some photos after I take them.

    Good job putting weight. What did your diet look like to gain so much weight and what was the time frame?

    I wouldn't worry about it.
    I'm a bit like that myself, but much more extreme, I have a 43 inch wiast lol.
    Just keep bulking if you like the extra strength you have.

    1. Bowl of Oatmeal
    2. 4-5 chicken breast fillets
    3. Chicken Fetucini Alfredo
    4. 4-5 chicken breast fillets
    5. Random

    I also drank a whey protein shake about 3 times a day with a peanut butter sandwich right before bed.

    I also added soda to my diet, but I am removing that now, as I have gained too much fat. I actually originally wanted to gain some fat for my face.

    the chicken fetucini has alot of sodium and some bad fat. i would stick with marinated chicken breasts or maybe add some egg whites and PB on toast.

    i have only been doing my diet for a month or two now but here is what i think you should do:

    -boil eggs on sunday night to last you throughout the whole week (say you have 4-6 hard boiled eggs per day, make about 20)
    -stock up on chicken cutlets and any sort of chicken you like
    -look at the articles, one i believe is titled "how to eat like a bodybuilder." it has alot of marinades and seasoning you can put on your meat
    -for simple chicken cutlets dip the cutlet in breadcrumbs, then a mixture of egg/water in a 2:1 ratio, then back in the breadcrumbs and your ready to fry in oil
    -non fat milk is important to have aswell (for protein shakes)
    -if your still hungry after you meal have some oats or a non fat yogurt

    8-10 chicken breasts a day? That sounds like hell!

    If you think you're gaining too much fat, all you can really do is drop the calories a bit, but not enough so that you aren't gaining weight. Gaining .5-1lb a week shouldn't put on much fat.

    Also make sure your routine is decent.

    It was chicken breast fillets, but it was hell! I ate them with BBQ sauce and Honey Mustard just to get them down!

    Yea, I was gaining like 2-3 lbs a week... way too fast!

    And I won't be still hungry after eating my daily amounts, because I have a very very low appetite. Eating this much to get here was hell, and involved a ton of puking and swallowing. Cutting back would be wonderful!
