I've been currently bulking for the last 2 weeks, usually give it about 2 weeks to see where my weight settles because many variables change when starting a bulking diet from increased water weight and increased food volume. So we'll see where it goes from here. Currently 5'10 161lb's
Lift weights 4x a week, HIIT 2x a week, just added long duration cardio on Sunday instead of a rest day, and in between the week I do miscelleneous forms of cardio usually about a 4 mile run in the mornings 2x maybe 3x a week due to being in the military. My main focus is to gain lean mass on a slow controlled bulk while also improving my health and cardio performance severely, hence the running... just would like some critique or general feedback on todays diet... and my all around plan. I decided to up the calories because of the increased cardio I plan to do was consuming an avg of roughly 2700 calories before.
Format for numbers is calories - - fat/carbs/protein
Meal 1 : 2/3 cup oatmeal, half a bananna, 1 cup eggbeaters
474 - - 6/72/35
Meal 2 : 1.25 cup shredded wheat n bran, 1 cup milk, 2 oz turkey

451 -- 9/49/46
Meal 6 : 1 cup cottage cheese, 2 tbsp natty pb, 1 scoop nitrean

looks good to me...with all that running you might hafta up ur calories some....do it for 2 weeks.. and if you're gaining strength (not weight) keep it the same...if ur not gaining strength (plateau) then up the calories 100 or 200...and i doubt u'll get fat with that much cardio... so... it should be easy to judge after about 2 weeks...
where is the love?
I'm thinking you'll need more calories due to all that cardio and stuff you're doing
