    calories

    i know this is the never ending question everyone wants to know.. but aproximately how many calories do most of you eat when your bulking again just aproximately and how much you weigh.. i basically do bodyweight x 20 and try to eat that as a minimum and not go over too much but if you do that for a 200 lb person thats 4000 calories and thats a damn lot.. just curious thanks

    people are less likely to track cals when bulking

    x 20 sounds excellent @ 4000

    If your worried about how you will get those cals
    take in around 100+g's of simple sugars postworkout

    1 cup of sunflower seeds is 820cals

    you could mix it up with different kinds of nuts on other days
    incredible source of efa's the link gives a breakdown of the fats

    Just add some cals to your current schedule and track your progress, then add more if necessary.

    I tried to count cals, but I'm too lazy right now. All I know is I more or less get my six meals in a day, and I bulk clean.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it.

    Whenever I want to get a good estimate of how many cals I am taking in I just subtract the calorie total of my post workout shake and then divide the remaining calories evenly over 6 meals. Makes it easier keeping up with calories meal to meal. I am trying to gain weight right now and I am eating approx 3600 cals a day (weight 203lbs.). It is going up slowly but hopefully I will not add too much bodyfat.

    They make up quite a bit of mine. Last time I counted my cals, I was eating somewhere in the neighbourhood of 300-400 grams a day.

    What would you guys consider a slow bulk and what would you consider a fast? Slow would be like 5lbs a month, and fast maybe 10+ a month? And if your not worried too much about BF what wouldn't you exceed to stay healthy?

    I think when your hitting 10+ pounds a month (provided your not juicing) I think you'd be hitting a danger zone with fat gain. Imo, I would just stick with like 1lb a week, I think it's the most rational approach.

    I am with Manveet on this one. Anything over about a pound or a pound and a half a week is likely to be fat. I would shoot for 1 pound a week and when you stop gainining weight just add in about another 500 calories to your daily totals.
