    WTF?

    Bulking on 2 meals a day is absurd. Eat and eat more. Oh and when youre done eating, eat again.

    I'm going to try and decipher your coded text message lingo. You do have to realized that many of us on here are much older and don't text message, or know all the "hip" abbreviations, so it's hard for us to read some of the stuff that people put on here.

    If you want a lean diet you should still spread your meals out evenly because your bodies absorption rate is better suited for intervals, vs. twice a day. If you have a 20 gram protein shake 5 times a day your body will actually absorb that amount of protein. If you have a 100 gram protein shake at one time the chances of your body absorbing most of it are slim to none. Plus on a two meal a day diet you are really starving yourself, even if the numbers are "equal" to smaller meals. If you want to be lean why not eat smaller healthy meals, with a good amount of protein, and have a good cardio plan to go along with your lifting.

    I would atleast do 3 meals a day. Ive read both ways and people will tell you different stuff. I dont have the link but it was posted by someone on here about the absorbtion rate of different foods, im sure you could find it. But I dont remember anything lasting 12 hrs, I may be wrong though. Do 3 meals a day breakfast, lunch, and dinner of about 800-900 cals a peice, clean foods. Snack between meals on some almonds or a pb sandwitch. that should put you around 3000 cals and would be decent for lean bulk IMO. If I only ate 2 meals a day I would be starving between them.

    sorry, i can't handle that much bro science in one post.

    the only time you should be having frequent meals is if you're drinking most of your protein - since whey absorbs quicker. if you're eating MEAT like you should, aminos are still being released several hours after you eat it. If you eat 2-3 meat meals a day, with adequate fats and carbs, you will not lose muscle, and you will burn more fat.

    You aren't starving yourself even if you don't eat for 12 hours. In fact, fasting is muscle sparing and increases insulin sensitivity and GH.


    hell, i fast 16-18 hours a day straight and i am more muscular and leaner than i've ever been. I eat 2 big meals, sometimes 3 in that 6-8 hour period.
    For me, the action IS the juice.

    That still seems low cals. My diet right now is
    7 am 2 eggs and 1 cup oatmeal.
    10am- snack
    1pm-Chicken breast, pasta/rice, vegies
    post w/o shake
    5pm- same as 1pm
    11pm-Chicken breast, veggies.
    I have to eat at 11 when I get home from work because im starving and I do cardio every night before my last meal. Im just starting this diet so im not sure how its working for me yet, but its supposed to be a recomp/cut.

    Im 21 and live at home to take care of my mom and only have a part time job. I buy 2 bags of boneless skinless chicken breasts a week. The ones I buy have real big peices so I cut them in half and get about 8-10 peices a bag. Thats only about 10-15 bucks a week. The rice and pasta is cheap and my mom cans veggies so I got all that at the house. If im doing a pure bulk I pretty much just double my portion size and add another shake with oats in it. It all depends on how much you can bulk on. Figure out what your maintnece cals are and add 300 or so if you want to do a lean bulk. If youre not gaining add 100 more. If youre gaining to much fat cut back a little bit. And it depends on how you handle carbs, I have a lot of carbs in my diet because I dont get bloated or fat from them, a lot of other people cant do that. Its all about figuring out how youre body responds to certain things and tweaking it from there.

    I've been doing 2 meals/day now for a while and it has been working pretty well for me. I've very slowly been getting leaner and maintaining body weight. I usually eat at 3:30pm and 9:30pm. I would suggest more fruits and vegetables and more variety, though.

    Do you snack alot throughout the day? I cant imagine only eating 2 meals a day and not being crazy hungry.

    You need to eat man. Just focus on getting down quality calories. The timing is irrelevant.
    Your breakfast might as well be for a 12 year old girl.
    Try 6 WHOLE eggs, 2 cups WHOLE milk, banana or some sort of easy carb.

    I personally gulp down 6 raw eggs and 2 cups of milk in like 15 seconds. Grab the banana and go. I prefer to drink my calories since I would otherwise have a hard time eating 6 eggs in one sitting. Incorporate easy quality calories into your meal plans and your caloric goals should come much easier.

    How long have you been training? To recomp you need to know how your body handles different foods. If beef is cheaper.than chicken, switch a meal with beef instead of chicken. To recomp it takes a while to perfect your diet and get your body to act how you want it to.

    Look down at a post named critique my lean bulk by phillyb. Take that and tweak it to you're budget and needs. It's atleast a base for you to work from.

    looks good. I would add some veggies with 3 and 4 tho. Do this and see how your body reacts to it. In about two weeks on it if youre not gaining then add some more cals or reduce if youre gaining to much fat. And you can add some beef instead of chicken sometimes too. Just make sure you eat meat and get the protein you need.

    Nah, I pretty much never snack. If I do then it kills my appetite when meal time rolls around.

    It all adds to around 2400cals aday

    So 230g of pro 220g of carbs and around 60 to 70g of fats .... This ok? For a recomp diet looking to still gain but lose at tge same time ?

    You don't want to exceed 1.5 egg yolks a day. You could get egg white protein powders to cook with. I use Rose Acre Farm egg whites and it's like $78 for $10lbs of it which is more than 1000 egg whites!

    If I was bulking I would have 4 large meals usually and couple of small meals between them. My big meals would be brakefast, pre-workout, post-workout, and before bed. My last meal would consist of a lot of cottage cheese for obvious reasons.

    It's easy to up your calories with oatmeal, brown rice, and sweet potato

    Oh and PB

    The macros look split good. For me 2400 would not be much, but dor you it might be. If you're not getting bigger after 2 weeks add 250 cals and see how that works.

    So that seems nice and good hows this for a nice lean gain ? Thanks alot i need to get this **** roght i wamt yo gain more !
    Im trying to recomp myself right now. For me sticking with mainly 200-300g of protein and most days under 50g of carbs has been helping alot. Im also stacking Erase+Titanium+TCF-1. Begining first week of July my stack will be Erase+AT2 and may switch up the diet a bit to trick my body. If I stay on the same diet for to long my body get used to it and just stops progressing. So I will take a week off and eat like a pig to boost motabolism again.
