Experience: About 2.5 years
Ok I started my bulk today after a 6 month cut from 20% bf to 15%. I never really logged my meals I pretty much ate every few hours, lots of protein and complex carbs, no sugar. Last week I logged my meals and found I was extremely low on caloric intake...like under 2000. So today I started my 'clean' bulk which consited of quaker oats, turkey omlette, chicken/brown rice, brocoli, etc. By 3:00 pm I was only at 1300 calories I have always made sure I ate about an hour before the gym so I hurried to a subway for a 6" club on wheat w/double meat. This should have put me around 2000 before the workout. Went to the gym and felt badass. Best workout Ive had in months. Usually my post workout shake is some muscle milk (love this stuff) but its only about 300 calories. Not enough. So here is the fun part. I stole some of my friends weight gain 5000 he bought from GNC. This crap has 1800 calories, 320g carbs, only 50g protein, and 100g of sugar Downed that and about an hour later had a couple chicken breasts. Opinions on what I just did welcome. FYI my goal is to bulk for only 6-8 weeks.
