I wish I could eat that stuff and not gain weight. Although then I probably wouldn't be able to put on muscle. Never a win win.
Slowly but surely I will get there. I'm sure everyone was nervous about gaining too much fat on their first bulk
A good ratio that works for me is your body weight (lb) x 18. For me it's about 3100 calories. I eat around this much on lifting days with at least 300 grams of protein a day. carbs should depend on your body type whether you gain a lot of fat quickly or not. if you gain fat quick, then I would suggest doing about 200-250 grams of carbs a day and about 100 grams of fat. on non workout days you could drop the calories to body weight (lb) x 14 and do some cardio to burn any fat you might be gaining. this is what works specifically for me. other programs seem to call for more calories. you could also check out jim stopannies shortcut to size program and look at his nutrition calculator
Checked out that program! It was a great read and some very good information and gain ideas. Thanks!
