I have read so much great info pertaining bulking/cutting and eating to get big but I cant seem to find any info that would help me out. Here is the issue:
I recently had an evaluation done at the gym I attend and was told that my BMI was 28%. When I joined, I weight in a 234, but fluctuate 8-10lbs depending on the season and other variables so for me that's normal.
I have a little bit of a belly and some love handles and maybe a slight layer of fat covering any muscle in my chest and back but that is about it. I have tried staying at my maintenance of 2400 cpd but it is really getting hard as I am always hungry, I eat 4 mini meals and 2 snacks per day getting the brunt of the carbs out of the way early in the day. I eat pretty clean but I will have a couple raunchy meal days a month.
I am lifting heavy to get big and would like to get my BMI down. I wanna get big, more of a power lifter/strongman physique, and eventually a decent cut but I am not looking to get shredded. So, how do I eat to get big but not so much that I still shrink the mid section?
