Trying to bulk the right way. Find out my maintence cals are 2,400 a day being 135 pounds. Not wanting to bulk too fast, I'm going to shoot for 3,000 calories a day to start and go from there. I've read 1-2 pounds a week is a good rule to follow for gaining weight. I do have some fat in some areas already at 135 pounds...mainly little in my pecs...so I don't want to gain weight too fast.
I'll be doing WBB #1.
Meal 1 in morning - Homemade weight gain shake.
65 grams of fat
60 grams of carbs
48 grams of protein
Meal 2 - Randon sandwhichs
PB and J or Tuna or Chicken breast, etc.
Meal 3 - Bonless, skinless chicken breast or some sort of fish
Meal 4 - Same shake as meal 1
The shakes alone are over 2,000 calories, 130 grams of fat, 120 grams of carbs, and 64 grams of protein. I figure I'll have no problem reaching 3,000 cals a day with the combo of shakes plus eating.
What do you think?
