Anabolic Dieting and Bulking

  1. Anabolic Dieting and Bulking


    I'm a 23 year old female. I'm 5'8 and I weigh 108lbs. My BMI is really low and I want to bulk up. Actually I want to gain lean mass. I don't want to gain fat around my stomach ( which is where it typically stores for me ). I want to continue with my anabolic diet, but I want to grow. Is this possible on this diet and if so what are your tips? Anything you share will be very much appreciated.


  2. Anabolic means to grow

    But I've read online that it's a cutting diet. On the weekends, should my carbs be completely exaggerated?

  4. Are u lifting weights?

  5. Yes, I'm currently doing Layne Norton's phat routine. Have you heard of it?

  6. I dont think its a 'cutting' diet per say; because it says it promotes muscle growth; which means caloric excess. This diet its referring to dropping body fat % while simulataneously gaining muscle; can be done through proper diet and training.

    Its just getting the body to use fat stores instead of carbohydrate stores to drop BF% because it uses fat for fuel (hence why people train fasted and only BCAAs as fuel) to maximise the amount of fuel used from fat.

    I generally limit carbs to <150g per day; much less than my glycogen stores to force them to use fat and three days a week I carb up (on cardio days).

    I carb up on cardio days because I hate running on an empty tank.

    I recently had some bloodwork done and the doctor said I'm in a state of ketosis. I have an abnormal level of ketones in my urine. This being said....Do you think it's time I carb up? ( I do less than 50g of carbs during the week ) I typically don't carb up at all or if I do, it's just during my weekly cheat meal.
