  1. Your caloric intake


    How many calories are you taking in per day. Please share! as well as height and weight.


  2. I'm sitting at 5'10" and 181 lbs. intake is only 1800pd but I'm desperately trying to cut a podgy frame... With a cleaner diet and regular training I'm on around a 4-6lb loss per month

    Once I hit the magical 10% bf I enquired about bulking and had some great advice, generally to increase my calorie intake by 300-500 (clean) above my maintenance level to keep fat gain to a minimum. I can't speak from first hand experience yet.

    You wanna be eating at least 2500 my man. Prob more. Remember growing is just like loosing and you need a high excess to grow. Don't go crazy and overdo it but personally my BMR is 1900 I factor in about 300 cals for lifting and cardio an then an extra 600 for gaining. Puts me at about 2800-3000 cals a day

    Add coconut oil or sunflower oil to your shakes. 1 tbsp every shake. Pb can become your best friend as well. Make some homemade chili, use fattier buger (70/30 or 80/20) meat with black and white beans.

    I was 171 5'4" (15% bf) bf was kinda high, paintin a picture for ya.. its doable bro.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  25. Currently at 3300 kcal/day. 5'8" 175. Macros 350 carbs, 245 pro, 109 fat. That's 40/30/30. First time I've ever tried 40/30/30. Always done 50/30/20 for bulk. Only a day into bulk. Anybody ever try 40/30/30? Im a little hesitant to go with that much fat on a daily basis!

    My macros are always around 40/30/30 and fats end up close to 200g daily (sometimes more). I remain fairly lean while doing this as well.
