K, I'll admit I know little/nothing about diet, so if you guys could help steer me in the right direction.
So far I understand there are two major types of diet, cutting and bulking?
Both work well with 4-6 meals per day.
And the both go something like this?
Breakfast-high protein, medium carbs
Lunch-high protein, low carbs (low GI), low fat
Post-workout-high carbs (high GI), medium protein
Dinner-medium carbs(low GI), high protein
Late meal-high protein, no carbs, low fat
Around what % bf should one achieve while bulking? I assume the goal is to gain bf which is then more easily converted to muscle?
Finally, how long should one be on a "cutting" routine before going back to bulking? and how long on bulking?
Thanks for any help!
I'm 26, 5'10, 174 lbs around 9% bf
I've been avg. roughly 1940 calories per day, 180g protein, 190g carbs, 40g fat and I've been losing 1-2lbs per week. I'm going to try to get my caloric intake to around 2100 per day.
